Niall Horan‘s special live album, Flicker featuring The RTE Concert Orchestra, was just released.
In April 2018, Niall and his band took a brief break from their world tour to travel to Dublin, Ireland, to record tracks from his debut album, Flicker, with the orchestra.
The nine-track project features eight reworked songs from Flicker, including “This Town,” “Too Much To Ask,” and the previously unreleased track “So Long.”
“Flicker was an album I made that came from the heart and my heart is very much in Ireland,” Niallsaid. “Recording tracks from that album with a 45-piece orchestra was a dream come true and to be able to do it at home with the RTE Concert Orchestra, one of the best in Europe, if not the world, was really special.”
“When recording the album, I could never get the production right on ‘So Long,’” he added. “I played it in tour rehearsals one day and the band joined in with me. We ended up making a new version which sounds amazing live and has been part of our tour set list. I love that we can finally release a version of it now.”
