"I've been listening to a lot of early 80's stuff lately and been inspired by that heavy bass and the funky guitar sound. It's another flavor to my album that I'm excited to share," said Horan when discussing 'Slow Hands'.

Horan, who has sold over 70 million records as part of the all-conquering One Direction, has spent the past year writing and recording his debut solo album which will be released prior to Christmas. Accompanying himself on guitar, his new material takes its inspiration from the music he has favored since childhood and his contemporaries—artists like Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles and Crosby, Stills and Nash, The Lumineers and James Bay. He has been working with a small team of producers including Julian Bunetta and Greg Kurstin to hone a distinctive sound for the album.
