OH. MY. GOD.
No one saw this coming; no one can believe his new music is really here.
Thursday morning, the 23-year-old singer made his debut as a solo artist by tweeting out a link to his new song, "This Town."
More than that, NIALL DROPPED A NEW MUSIC VIDEO ALONG WITH IT.
It's a pretty simple video of him recording in the studio, but still.
Now we don't get to just listen to his beautiful voice, we get to watch him belt out the lyrics, too.
Holy shit, my heart can't handle any of this. Also, um, can we talk about how hot he looks? Damn boy, you've grown up.
It's no surprise Niall's fans are losing their shit. NIALL, YOU ARE DESTROYING US ALL.
Everyone is dead. Niall's voice has single-handedly killed us all.
Now, let's talk about those lyrics:
Waking up to kiss you and nobody's there. The smell of your perfume still stuck in the air. It's hard.
I have chills. I want this song played a million times at my wedding, and I don't even have a husband yet.
I wonder who this is about, Niall? Is there a special lady in your life who got away?
I saw that you moved on with someone new, in the pub that we met he's got his arms around you.
This is so beautiful, I can't handle this kind of emotion at 11:30 in the morning.
