The One Direction superstar has been slowly but steadily making waves in the music industry as a solo artist.
While Niall Horan has found critical success for his material, including the massive hit Slow Hands, he has admitted to not fully enjoying performing on his own.
The Irishman, 24, confessed that he has missed the “comfort blanket” being with Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik since hitting the road on what so far has been a glistening solo career.
Speaking to The Sunday Times Culture magazine, he said: “With 1D, the screaming didn’t stop. We’d all run around and there was always some explosion going f or prop coming on.
“Now, I just stand there thanking God for my guitar. When I put that down, I haven’t a clue what to do with my hands”.
Niall continued: “I miss the comfort blanked being in a band.”
Speaking about how he feels performing his debut album, Flicker, without having released any the material prior for sale, the handsome singer said it was very strange playing to an audience that wasn’t just screaming.
“I wanted to watch people’s reaction,” he said. “They don’t know the lyrics, so they can’t sing along. I’m forcing them to listen, but, course, that means playing to a relatively quiet crowd, which is spooky.”
Even if his career as a lone singer sees him become as successful as Michael Jackson, Horan is adamant he’ll always want to reunite with his 1D bandmates.
He said: “If it comes tomorrow, I have my bag packed. If I have to wait ’til I’m 60, so be it. I’m serious. We’ll be like The Eagles and never stop.”
