“I always knew that if I ever made a solo album what it would sound like,” Horan says in a trailer. “I spent the last year and a half between the four walls of a studio and I’m ready to go and show how proud of the album I am.”

Niall says Flicker traces the journey of a teenager from Ireland, from an adult perspective. Filmmakers recruited one of Horan’s biggest influences to appear in the movie: Don Henley. In a brief clip, Henley says of Niall: “I’m looking forward to watching him grow.”
