30 OCTOBER 2017 (Toronto, ON) – FlickerNiall Horan’s debut solo album released via Capital Records / Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company, entered both the Canadian SoundScan and Billboard 200 charts at No. 1 during the week ending October 26. To date, Flicker has topped the iTunes Top Albums chart in 61 countries.

Available here, Flicker contains ten original songs, including the 2X Platinum hit “This Town”,  “Slow Hands” – which topped the Top 40 and Hot AC charts in Canada for three consecutive weeks and is also certified 3X Platinum – and Horan’s new single, “Too Much To Ask”. He collaborated with producers Julian Bunetta, Jacquire King and Greg Kurstin to develop the distinctive sound he envisioned for the album.

Tickets are on sale now for the more extensive Flicker World Tour 2018, which will see Horan performing to crowds in North America, Europe, South America and Australasia. Visit for the itinerary.

Entertainment Weekly hailed Flicker as a “must-listen” new release and noted, “Grab a car, roll down the windows, and drive down some empty roads — these are the ideal listening conditions for Niall Horan’s solo debut.” TIME declared it “a promising solo debut…a sweet and folksy turn from one of boy band pop’s prior titans.” People selected Flicker as one of its Picks of the Week, and praised the “lush, contemporary ‘Too Much to Ask’ and ‘pop-country confection ‘Seeing Blind.’”

In this feature, Rolling Stone observed, “[Flicker] unveils a never-before-seen personal side of Horan to listeners both new and old.” Billboard noted, “while there are other slow melodies like ‘This Town’ on Flicker (the title track, as well as album-enders ‘Fire Away’ and ‘You and Me’), there’s also plenty of riskier digressions like the sexy ‘Slow Hands’…and the country-tinged Maren Morris collaboration ‘Seeing Blind.’"

“This Town”, the album’s first single, has sold more than three million track equivalent units globally and combined streams now surpass 450 million worldwide. The follow-up single, “Slow Hands”, went straight to No. 1 in 44 countries and now has more than 820 million combined streams worldwide. “Slow Hands” has been certified Platinum in the U.S. and New Zealand, 4X Platinum in Australia, 3X Platinum in Canada and Ireland and 2X Platinum in The Netherlands. Horan has been nominated for an American Music Award in the New Artist of the Year category.
