When rumors that One Direction was headed for spiltsville swirled around Hollywood last year, fans everywhere wondered what the individual fate for each member would be. Not surprisingly, pretty much everyone went solo; and while we’ve heard tracks from Zayn and know that Harry Styles is working on his own career (he signed a deal with Columbia Records back in June), this is the first track we’re hearing from Niall Horan.

The former One Direction star posted a video on Vevo and Facebook of his *first* solo track and we have to say, this song has some super-serious Ed Sheeran vibes going for it.

We’re really digging this sound and the lyrics!

We wonder who the lucky lady he’s singing about is!

And just because Niall and his former bandmates have all moved on to the other things, doesn’t mean we should rule out a reunion — although it probably won’t happen any time soon.

In an interview with AnOther Man, Harry Styles said:

Until that happens, we at least have “This Town” to hold on to!
