YESSSSS

Even if it is a bit similar to What A Feeling (which wasn't a single). Still one of my faves from the album. :)

Strong song but won’t do much now the album is out. Hope he follows up his album pretty quickly.

Good single choice! This could do decently, though "Seeing Blind" would most certainly do even better.

I think the era is kinda over at this point, but I love this song.

I would have preferred Seeing Blind, as Maren Morris is getting more exposure now and it might have drummed up some more interest.

I like this song - it's definitely a standout track, but I doubt it'll do much for album sales.

+1

I thought "Seeing Blind" was the obvious next single, would have been cool to see Maren being on two new songs (the other being "The Middle")...

I'm also quite shocked at the record label not seeing huge potential in Seeing blind as a hit single considering The middle is doing well. Or maybe they didn't want Maren Morris to overshadow Niall? :roll:

I like On the loose but its not single material.

This really reminds me of something Shawn Mendes would do. Great song.

It’s very Shawn Mendes-esque indeed :)

I think people are underestimating how well this could potentially do. Seeing Blind is the obvious single after this!

Loving the alternative version of this, much more up listenable than his previous material, a bit One Republic, or even some classic 80s acts...Phil Collins, The Police, Fleetwood Mac influence..

Melodic but pretty basic acoustic pop. It's not like he's doing some Erlend Oye/Kings Of Convenience/Sondre Lerche kind of stuff with even a tiniest hint of sophistication :)

This is pretty great, I get summer vibes from it.

Nothing will top Slow Hands though - so much love for that.

It’s the perfect song for springtime.
I think this will end up as my fave from Niall so far.

Zany hasn’t delivered anything in years. We’ll see how well he does with his next album.

Zayn seems to have an annual hit single then nothing else. Not sure that counts as "delivering" though. :lol:

Liam can be hot...but his music suffers from an identity crisis and he seems to be devoid of any personality. :x

Niall ticks all the boxes imo, his lack of chart success in the streaming era counts for nothing. Niall would be #1 if he featured on a Drake or Post Malone single. :lol:
