Niall Horan returns today with ‘Nice To Meet Ya’, the first single from his forthcoming second album.
A sublime piece of piano-driven pop with a soulful groove and bright hand percussion, “Nice To Meet Ya” provides the perfect backdrop to Horan’s magnetic vocals and playful yet heartfelt lyrics. He co-wrote the song with his longtime collaborator Julian Bunetta (Maroon 5, Jessie Ware), who also produced, Tobias Jesso, Jr. (Florence + the Machine, Adele) and Ruth-Anne Cunningham (John Legend, Pentatonix).
Niall Horan says, “It’s been nearly two years since I released Flicker and I can’t wait to get going again. Writing ‘Nice To Meet Ya,’ in particular, was a special one for me and I’m so excited to finally share it with everyone.”
The official video was directed by The Young Astronauts and shot in London.
