Niall Horan has opened up to Eoghan McDermott in an exclusive interview featured in his upcoming documentary on RTE1.
In Niall Horan with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, Niall talks about the difficulty of maintaining relationships while touring.
'Being in a relationship when you’re 18 or 19 is hard enough anyway, because it’s your whole world,' he told Eoghan.
'But when you have such a demanding job and you’re not in the same place as that person at the time, it can be quite tough and I’ve learned to deal with it better than I used to,' he said.
'I used to find it really frustrating and who knows what could have happened in previous relationships if I wasn’t doing the same thing.'
'But at the same time, if I didn’t get to travel the world I wouldn’t have got to meet these people – it’s kind of a give and a take.'
He went on to describe how his career path has made relationships more of an issue for him than if he wasn't a singer/song writer, but that it has helped his career in a way.
'The job can be quite demanding on your personal life, but then again I wouldn’t have written these songs if it wasn’t for it!’
The full documentary airs this Saturday 12 May at 6.55pm on RTÉ One.
Noel and Lima Gallagher have been embroiled in a well-document feud for the guts of a decade, and now one Irish pop star is caught in the crossfire.
While discussing his brother's new album As You Were, Noel made some less than flattering remarks about the new music.
Noel insinuated that his brother's album was written by a number of different people, and that he doesn't feel it merits his opinion.
'I'm not sure I can be arsed formulating an opinion on a record that's written by an army of songwriters,' he told the new issue of I-D magazine. Ouch.
However, Irish singer Niall Horan was then dragged into the mix.
'Isn't the one from One Direction doing that?,' Noel said, using Niall's new album Flicker to diss his brother's music.
'The little Irish fella with the acoustic? At least he has the decency to play a guitar.'
'I'm not a fan.'
Perhaps Niall will have a 'I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative' moment much like his celeb pal Taylor?
Ahead of the release of Niall Horan's highly-anticipated debut solo album, Flicker, Apple Music have revealed details of its upcoming short film which offers fans an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of the record.
According to The Irish Mirror, On the Record: Flicker, is set to feature a number of candid interviews as well as footage of acoustic rehearsals, and an insight into the former One Direction star's creative process.
The album and film are both set to drop on Friday, October 20, though Niall will host a private screening for fans in Los Angeles on October 19.
The exclusive preview will be followed by full live performance of the new album.
In the trailer, Niall says: “I always knew that if I ever made a solo album what it would sound like.”
“I spent the last year and a half between the four walls of a studio and I'm ready to go and show how proud of the album I am.”
Check out the full clip below:
Niall Horan has just revealed that he will be dropping some brand new, solo tunes on October 20.
The One Direction star tweeted to his fans to give away the hotly anticipated date.
His first solo studio album will be called Flicker.
'It's been a long time coming but I'm delighted to announce that my new album 'Flicker' is out on the 20th of October,' he tweeted.
'I hope you enjoy it.'
To give fans a little bit more to celebrate, the Mullingar man also revealed that a new single will be dropping at midnight EPT.
The new tune is called Too Much To Ask.
'It's a very special song to me and I hope you like it,' he said.
We can't wait to hear their new album.
