Thought for Today: "All men profess honesty as long as they can. To believe none so, is something worse." — President John Quincy Adams (1767-1848).
The smiley, cheeky Irish charmer took to international fame quite effortlessly, and fans all over the world loved him back. Despite saying he was going to take a year out to travel and play golf following One Direction's hiatus in early 2016, Niall couldn't help himself and started work on brand new music.
He has what Louis Walsh always likes to see in contestants on Since 1D went on a break, the focus has been on Harry Styles's Hollywood career and Liam Payne's high-profile relationship with Cheryl, but in the background Niall has been putting all his attention into a solo project of his own. He first revealed that he had some ideas in the can as early as May 2016, but it wasn't until the summer that he secured himself a record deal. Initially, it looked like Niall would stay faithful to 1D boss Simon Cowell and sign a contract with his record label Syco.
"I think they're all gonna do great," Simon told magazine in the US. We are expecting to announce something soon with him.
It's a lovely swaying guitar-led ballad that hears him team up with Adele hit-maker Greg Kurstin.
Surely with the first taster of Niall's solo music out there, it's all leading up to the full album being released before Christmas.
