AceShowbiz - Niall Horan never fails to stir up our emotions with his music. A few days after releasing a bittersweet love song "Too Much to Ask", the One Direction star has now premiered a music video for the track. The poignant visuals begins with Niall sitting on a bed alone while seemingly waiting for someone he loves.
The Malia James-directed clip then follows the Irish heartthrob walking around the city alone as he sings about his heartbreak. At one point, Niall tries to ease the heartache by grabbing a pint with some friends. However, the relief is temporary. He later strums his guitar while still pondering about his long-lost love.
Overall, it's definitely the perfect visuals to accompany the brilliant song. While Niall finds strength to cure his loneliness, his soulful gaze and vulnerable voice will urge anyone to hug and console him throughout the emotional video.
Thanks to the music video, fans are concerned about the singer. "You can hear the pain in his voice and you can really tell he's been hurt. Just tell me who it was, I just wanna talk," a fan writes below the video. Another remarks, "You have an angelic voice. It's hard achieve the pain and innocence and sheer purity that you have demonstrated in your music. Not at all artists are capable of that. You should be proud of yourself."
"Too Much to Ask" was seemingly inspired by Niall's personal experience. Before the song release, the "This Town" hitmaker took to Twitter to share, "It's a very special song to me and I hope you like it." He previously also revealed that it was one of his favorite tracks off his debut solo album "Flicker", which is set to arrive on October 20.
Niall is currently on the road in support of the upcoming album. After kicking off the intimate trek with a hometown gig in Dublin, Ireland, he visited some countries like Australia, Sweden and Japan. He returned to the U.S. on September 19 for the North American run. The tour is set to conclude on November 22 in San Francisco.
