WATCH: Horan releases first single from new album

Niall Horan has released the first single from his new album.

The Mullingar native will be hoping that the single, Heaven, will be the first of many hits from his third album, The Show, which is scheduled for release on June 9.

Earlier this week, Horan revealed the release date for his new album, which he said "is a piece of work I’m so proud of and now it’s time to pass it over to you to go and make it your own".

This summer is going to be a very busy one for the singer. In addition to the release of The Show, Horan is playing a number of festivals around Europe, including Electric Picnic where he will be making his maiden appearance.

He will have high hopes that The Show will build on the success of his previous two albums, 2017's Flicker and 2020's Heartbreak Weather, both of which topped the charts across the globe.
