Niall Horan is Way in His Feelings on Heart-Crushing ‘Put a Little Love On Me’ Watch

The weather outside is frightful, so it's the perfect time to curl up in front the fire with a hot cup sad and listen to "Put a Little Love On Me," the latest taste  Niall Horan's upcoming album. The four-Kleenex weeper that dropped on Friday morning (Dec. 6) is a spare, emotional ballad written by Horan with longtime collaborators Jamie Scott and Daniel Bryer (who also produced it), along with Mike Needle, with lush strings arranged and produced by Greg Kurstin.

"When the lights come up and there’s no shadows dancing/ I look around as my heart is collapsing/ ‘Cause you’re the only one I need," Horan sings about a love gone wrong over haunting piano in the Cameron Busby-directed video, in which he plays the keys as a woman in red dances alone in a spotlight. 

"Just wanted to release this song because I feel like it deserves to be released and I want you to have it now," the singer tweeted.

"Put a Little Love" follows on the heels the October's hit "Nice To Meet Ya." Horan will appear on The Tonight Show on Dec. 14 and perform solo on Saturday Night Live for the first time on Dec. 14. His Nice To Meet Ya world tour is slated to kick f on Apr. 20 in Nashville at Bridgestone Arena, with Lewis Capaldi and Fletcher on board as opening acts.
