Niall Horan’s first new album in three years "The Show" will be released on June 9.

"The Show" will be Irish singer-songwriter Niall Horan's third solo album and the first since 2020’s chart-topping "Heartbreak Weather." The album is being released by Capitol Records.

Announcing his new album, Horan said: “There’s so much pressure for people to hit certain milestones by a certain age – you get married at this age, buy a house at that age, have kids at some other age.

“But I’ve never conformed to those ideas, and so I wanted to write about how we all should just focus on enjoying our lives and doing what feels right, instead of worrying about what might be expected of us."

I couldn’t possibly be more happy to tell you that my new album ‘The Show’ will be released on June 9th. You can pre-order it now at

This album 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.

Throughout "The Show," the 29-year-old Mullingar native "matches the pure emotion" of his past work with "a powerful new element of soul-searching reflection."

"Built on a lush and radiant form of alt-pop, the album draws much of its mesmerizing power from his use of harmonies."

On February 17, the same day the album pre-order launched, Horan shared "Heaven," the lead single from "The Show."

Horan wrote "the soulful, shimmering track" with John Ryan and Joel Little, who also produced, and Tobias Jesso Jr. during an idyllic trip to Southern California’s Mojave Desert, Capitol Music Group said in a statement.

"In a striking contrast to its gorgeous convergence of airy harmonies and glistening synth, 'Heaven' ultimately delivers a defiant refusal to play along with the arbitrary rules that society imposes," Capitol Music Group said.
