Niall Horan’s third solo album, called “The Show,” will come out on June 9, 2023. The former member of One Direction announced the news on social media before the release of his first single, “Heaven,” on February 17.
He said, “I couldn’t possibly be happier to tell you that my new album ‘The Show’ will be released on June 9th,”
“This album is a piece of work I’m so proud of and now it’s time to pass it over to you to go and make it your own. Thank you so much for being there for me all this time and I can’t wait to share the next couple of years of this new era with you.”
“I’ve missed you all so much. It’s good to be back. Welcome to ‘The Show’.”

The singer also said in a new TikTok that the new album is “by far and away my favorite stuff I’ve ever worked on”. Here, you can pre-order/save “The Show” and check out the new website, but the full tracklist isn’t out yet.
In a press release about his new song “Heaven,” Horan said, “One thing I’ve learned over the years is that society loves to pressure us into reaching certain milestones by a certain age,”
“Whether that’s getting married or anything else that really should be based on our own instincts. As I’ve gotten older I’ve tried to let go of those expectations and just follow my heart. The chorus of this song is saying that what I have in my life currently is amazing. So it would be crazy to ruin that by giving in to outside pressures.”
The singer gave hints about his new album with a song snippet and a mysterious website last month.
The new website was called “NH3 Loading…,” and its URL was www.heavenwontbethesame.com. It had a window and a blue candle that flickered. The website now has a link to a button for pre-ordering.
Some fans also said they got teaser boxes that said “Heaven Won’t Be the Same” and had big N and H letters on them.

Horan played an acoustic part of a song in a recent TikTok and then asked, “Something like that?”
“God only knows where this could go / And even if our love starts to grow out of control / And you and I go up in flames / Heaven won’t be the same,” he sings.
The singer’s second solo album, called “Heartbreak Weather,” came out in 2020. NME gave it three stars and said it was a “mixed bag, with moments of magic butting up against moments of ‘meh’.”
