BWW Review: Niall Horan Drops Smooth New Single 'Too Much To Ask'

SWOON! One Direction member Niall Horan just dropped his new single "Too Much To Ask."

The easy listening track follows suit with his previous two releases, 'Slow Hands' and 'This Town.' Although those songs are more acoustic guitar heavy, the new single is led by piano and Horan's silky vocals. The album will most likely follow this pattern which is a nice break from what's currently playing on the radio- top 40 driven songs with autotuned heavy vocals.

In the chorus, Horan sings: My shadow's dancing/ Without you for the first time/ My heart is hoping / You'll walk right in tonight/ You tell me there are things that you regret/ 'Cause if I'm being honest I ain't over you yet/ It's all I'm asking/ Is it too much to ask?/ Is it too much to ask? This is completely heart breaking! You can feel how hurt he is.

The track is about Horan hoping for someone that he loved come back after a fight or just because he lost her and hopes for so much that he hurts. 'Hope' is the one thing that keeps everyone going, it can also be the thing that kills us. As the cover art depicts, he's sitting his his room letting this heartbreak eat him alive.

"Too Much To Ask" was one of the first songs he wrote for his upcoming debut solo album 'Flicker' set to release on October 20 via Capitol Records. He worked on it last year and co-wrote it with long time collaborator Jamie Scott. It was produced by Greg Kurstin who also produced "Slow Hands" and "This Town."

The singer/songwriter also announced he will be going on an extensive world tour titled the "Flicker World Tour 2018" and will be kicking off in the U.S. and Canada. Country superstar Maren Morris will be joining him to open up on the tour.

Tickets for the tour will go on-sale to the general public on Friday, September 22 at 10am local time. CitiCard holders will get a special pre-sale on Tuesday, September 19, at 10am local time. For the complete details visit www.citiprivatepass.com.
