Dork cover star and all-round legend Niall Horan has announced the next single from his forthcoming album ‘The Show’.
Titled ‘Meltdown’, the track is obviously Absolutely Brilliant, and follows up on the gold standard megabop ‘Heaven’, which arrived earlier this year.
Talking to Dork (Hi! – Ed) as part of our interview for this month’s new issue, Niall explains: “It’s one of those things, isn’t it? We all have it. We all have these panicky moments where you feel like it’s all crumbling. And you’re constantly telling yourself ‘I’ll be alright.’ That’s what you keep saying to yourself to calm yourself down. ‘I’ll be okay. I’ll be okay.’ Or someone says it to you, ‘you’re alright, everything’s fine.’ I wanted to put that into a song.
“I also wanted to create a song that made you understand the pace of it. I wanted to make a really quick verse, so it’s like, frantic, frantic. Then the chorus actually feels like it’s completely slowed down, taken away from… A departure from the verse. I know when I’m doing this… I’m writing for myself, but I know who I’m talking to. My fans… I know what they’re into. I read their stuff online every day. The fact that I can watch them dance and jump around the place at 170BMP to a song that’s about anxiety… It’s a really cool thing in my head. I don’t know whether that’s messed up or not. You know what I mean?”
Yes, Niall. We do. You mean it is a Very Good Song.
‘Meltdown’ is set to drop on 28th April. ‘The Show’ is set to follow on 9th June.
