The Show (Black Vinyl LP)

Black Vinyl LP

On his long-awaited third album The Show, multi-platinum-selling singer/songwriter Niall Horan matches the pure emotion of his globally beloved past work with a powerful new element of soul-searching reflection. The follow-up to Heartbreak Weather—a 2020 release that hit No. 1 in the U.K. and Ireland and earned praise from the likes of NPR and Rolling Stone—The Show came to life after the 29-year-old artist spontaneously composed its introspective title track late one night on piano, immediately unlocking never-before-explored dimensions of his creativity. With its deeply felt meditation on everything from mental health to the infinite complexity and uncertainty of love, the result is an endlessly spellbinding statement on following your heart to its absolute truth.

In the making of The Show, Horan worked with a close-knit circle of co-writers and producers, including frequent collaborators like Julian Bunetta (Thomas Rhett, SG Lewis), Jamie Scott (Jessie Ware, Rag’n’Bone Man), and John Ryan (John Legend, James Bay), as well as acclaimed producer Joel Little (Lorde, MARINA), and friends Amy Allen (Halsey, Sam Smith) and Tobias Jesso Jr. (HAIM, Florence + the Machine). Built on a lush and radiant form of alt-pop, the album draws much of its mesmerizing power from Horan’s ingenious use of harmonies—an element inspired by Crosby, Stills & Nash, Jackson Browne, and other members of the ’60s/’70s music scene in Laurel Canyon (the very same Los Angeles neighborhood in which he’s lived part-time for the past seven years).

Available on limited translucent blue coloured vinyl with poster.
