Niall Horan is set to release his debut solo album, Flicker, on Capitol Records on October 20. Today, Horan unveiled the album’s cover and latest single, “Too Much To Ask,” and announced plans for an extensive U.S. and Canadian run on his “Flicker World Tour 2018.” Country superstar and “Seeing Blind” collaborator Maren Morris will join to support the new dates.
“Too Much To Ask” is one of the first songs Horan penned for the album, which he began working on last year. He co-wrote the track with long-time collaborator Jamie Scott. Produced by Greg Kurstin, who also produced “This Town,” “Too Much To Ask” is available for download and streaming.
Horan will kick off his 2018 tour of the U.S. and Canada on July 18 at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion presented by Huntsman in The Woodlands, TX. The run will include shows at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles (August 7), Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO (August 20) and the Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, NY (September 12).
