Niall Horan announces his new single Put A Little Love On Me will be released on Friday December 6

Niall's latest single Nice To Meet Ya reached Number 1 on the Official Irish Homegrown Chart.

Niall Horan has announced the second single from his upcoming album.

Put A Little Love On Me will be released on Friday December 6, and serves as the follow-up to Nice To Meet Ya, which peaked at Number 7 on the Official Irish Singles Chart and Number 1 on the Official Irish Homegrown Chart.

Produced by Greg Kurstin, the man behind hits for P!nk, Adele and Sia, Put A Little Love On Me is a piano ballad that Niall first performed at his record label's Capitol Congress event in August. Greg also produced Niall's hit singles This Town and Too Much To Ask.

Put A Little Love On Me was co-written with Jamie Scott (Rudimental, Justin Bieber) Mike Needle (Rag'n'Bone Man, One Direction) and Dan Bryer (Gavin James, Jessie Ware).

Niall has a longlist of 50-60 songs that he wrote for his second studio album, which is scheduled for release next year. RuthAnne, the singer-songwriter behind his smash hit Slow Hands, wrote the album's lead single, and another track that she couldn't say will make the final tracklisting.

As part of One Direction, Niall has scored the most Number 1 singles by a group this decade in Ireland, with all five of the band's albums hitting the top of the Official Irish Albums Chart. Niall's solo album Flicker also reached Number 1 on home soil.
