Niall Horan Has Big Plans For His Debut 'Folk-Pop' Album

Niall Horan is spilling some details on his upcoming debut album!

The 23-year-old singer explained that the album will be “folk-with-pop feel to it” and will definitely be inspired by his favorite classic rock acts like Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles.

“Whenever I would pick up a guitar, I would always naturally play chords like that, and finger pick a lot, and play that folky kind of style,” he told Entertainment Weekly.

Niall added, “Some of the songs are heavier than others. I play a bit of electric on some tracks and we obviously played around a lot with percussion stuff to build up the songs so there was a lot of things going on percussion wise.”

Although Niall felt ready to record a solo album, he explained that there are some challenges not recording with the rest of One Direction.

“The biggest challenge of making the album was making sure I could sing for that long. I did write the songs in my key so I didn’t try to make it too difficult for myself,” he explained.
