The chart-topping global sensation Niall Horan has just released his new single “Meltdown” from his upcoming album The Show. Capitol Records’ artist gives a furious anthem that brilliantly depicts the intensity of anxiousness, then changes the track’s chorus into a moment of sweet reassurance for his followers. The album, set to be released on June 9, promises to be an endlessly mesmerizing message about following your heart to its utter truth.
“Meltdown” was co-written by Horan, John Ryan, Joel Little, who also produced it, and Amy Allen. The song was motivated by Horan’s desire to present his audience with the same sense of catharsis he consistently finds in music. “Whenever I’m having a problem, the easiest thing to do is sit at the piano and let it all out,” he added. “It’s not until I listen back that I realize, ‘Jesus, that was honest.'”
Along with “Meltdown,” Horan has released the album’s first single, “Heaven,” which has already earned the highest-volume streaming day of Horan’s solo career. The song debuted as the most popular new entry on the Spotify Global and the US charts. Rolling Stone states, “Niall Horan’s certified lover boy era has begun.” “‘Heaven’…reaches for eternal love with a vocal elasticity and guitar chug that play off each other with ease,” according to Billboard.
The Show is set to be Horan’s most vulnerable work yet, with tracks ranging from mental health to the endless intricacy and uncertainty of love. Fans pre-ordering the digital album will automatically receive “Meltdown” and “Heaven.”
Horan is a former member of the renowned One Direction. He is originally from Mullingar, Ireland. He’s sold over 80 million records and toured the world several times. Flicker, his full-length solo debut, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in October 2017 and featured the 3x RIAA Platinum single “Slow Hands” and the 2x RIAA Platinum single “This Town.” The album charted in the top ten in 20 countries. Flicker has gone Platinum in five countries (including the United States) and Gold in an additional seven countries, with combined global streams over eight billion. Heartbreak Weather was released in 2020 and topped the UK’s Official Albums chart as well as Billboard’s Top Album Sales. Horan is also a new coach on NBC’s The Voice this season.
