Niall Horan has announced his first song in almost three years. ‘Heaven’ is due to be released on 17th February. Can you also believe a candle acted as the countdown to the announcement? Niall’s dedicated fanbase found a website with a candle on that he’d sent out to fans, the candle burned and dwindled all the way down once it was gone when he announced the single.
‘Heaven’ was written by Niall alongside John Ryan, Tobias Jesso Jr and Joel Little, who also produced it. It was recorded in California and is set to be the lead single for a rumoured album coming next.
Niall said of the single: “One thing I’ve learned over the years is that society loves to pressure us into reaching certain milestones by a certain age. Whether that’s getting married or anything else that really should be based on our own instincts. As I’ve gotten older I’ve tried to let go of those expectations and just follow my heart. The chorus of this song is saying that what I have in my life currently is amazing. So it would be crazy to ruin that by giving in to outside pressures.”
Niall has been using TikTok while promoting his new music and has been teasing fans since before Christmas. He has already teased his fans with a snippet of the song on his TikTok which you can view below.
