“Smallfoot” stars Horan’s friend and “The Late Late Show” host James Corden as Percy, a human mountain climber, opposite Channing Tatum in lead bill as Migo, a yeti scientist who strives to prove “Smallfoot” (human) creatures really do exist. Zendaya, Common, and LeBron James also voice roles in the star-studded cast. The film is slated for theatrical release on Sept. 28.
“Finally Free” marks Horan’s first musical release outside of his debut solo album Flicker, which topped charts in multiple countries, including the Billboard 200 chart in the United States. He’s been busy touring to support the album on the Flicker World Tour. He's joined on tour by country star Maren Morris, who is featured on the Flicker single "Seeing Blind." Horan also recently appeared as a surprise guest at a Taylor Swift reputation tour show in London to perform a duet of his sultry, chart-topping single “Slow Hands.”
