Pop artist Niall Horan will become the latest former​​​​ One Direction member to drop a solo album when he releases Flicker this Friday (Oct.20), and the Ireland-born singer has teased two new songs ahead of the release. Horan took to Twitter earlier this week to reveal two clips of "Fire Away" and "On The Loose," the latter being the first track off his debut solo effort. Check out the two videos below.

Flicker will be Horan's first full body of work since parting ways with One Direction in 2016. It features three previously released singles in "This Town," "Slow Hands" and "Too Much to Ask." "Slow Hands" has been the highest-charting single yet, reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Adult Top 40, Dance Club Songs and Mainstream Top 40 while also clocking in at No. 11 on the Hot 100.

Horan joins former bandmates Zayn and Harry Styles as the third One Direction member to release a solo LP. Zayn's Mind of Mine was released in March 2016 and featured three singles in "Pillowtalk," "Like I Would" and "Wrong." It received the top spot on the Billboard 200 while also reaching the summit on the Mexican, New Zealand, Norwegian, Portuguese, Swedish and U.K. Albums Chart. Styles' eponymous record was released in May and also reached the top spot on the Billboard 200.

Horan will embark on a North American tour later this month. The singer is slated to play 13 shows in the U.S. and Canada through late November. He'll return stateside for a proper tour leg next summer, making 37 stops across the continent between July and September.
