One Direction's Niall Horan turns acoustic maestro in his debut solo single "This Town", a new release to celebrate his signing to Capitol.

The news follows solo deals from former bandmates Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Zayn Malik. Louis Tomlinson is the only member yet to venture out alone.

Horan says of the new single and signing: "I'm excited to announce I have signed a record deal with Capitol Records USA and released my first solo song. Thank you to all the One Direction fans for your love and support as always.I'm looking forward to the next part of this journey together."

Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia) produced the track, which Niall wrote with Jamie Scott, Mike Needle, and Daniel Bryer.
