Downtown Music Publishing has announced a new multi-territory music publishing administration agreement with songwriter and recording artist Niall Horan.
The announcement comes on the heels of the release of Horan’s second single, “Slow Hands,” which has already hit No. 1 on iTunes in 47 countries, Top 5 in 70 countries, and is climbing up the radio and streaming charts worldwide. His debut single as a solo artist, “This Town,” was the first track to ever debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Social 50 Chart and recently earned Horan a Platinum Award for songwriting from the National Music Publishers Association. “This Town” also peaked at the top of the charts in 61 countries and Top 5 in 78 countries.
As a member of One Direction, whose songs are also administered by Downtown, Horan co-wrote tracks on each of the group’s five albums. In 2015, 1D set the record for most Top 10 song debuts, including the Multiplatinum Horan co-write “Story of My Life,” which topped the global charts.
