A bittersweet song about losing love.

Niall Horan’s new song “Too Much To Ask” will give you the feels.

It’s a Niall takeover. The former One Direction singer announced that his new album Flicker drops October 20th, then a few hours later premiered the lead single. It’s titled “Too Much To Ask,” a bittersweet love song about losing that special someone. Ugh, heartbreak *****.

“Waiting here for someone / Only yesterday we were on the run,” he sings over a somber guitar melody. “You smile back at me and your face lit up the sun / Now I’m waiting here for someone.” The lyrics are actually quite heartbreaking.

It’ll be interesting to see how this performs. The track has a bit of a country tinge to it and reminds me of his first release with “This Town.” On first listen it dipped my mood, but that’s not a bad thing. That’s a sign of a song that connects. Only time will tell how it resonates with fans, but it’s a thumbs up from me.

If you’re missing someone, give this a play; it’s pretty emotional.
