AceShowbiz - Last week, Niall Horan announced that groovy track "On the Loose" would be the next single off "Flicker". And after teasing the lyric video for the track, the Irish heartthrob finally delivered the said visuals on Monday, February 12.
The retro-inspired clip features a woman seducing multiple men as Niall's gorgeous vocals can be heard in the background. "She loves when everybody's watching/ She knows the way her body moves," he sings. "She loves the way they all crawl back when she says/ She loves nobody else but you."
The end of the lyric video sees the lady leaving her lover alone in their shared apartment. She later drives out of the town and arrives at a mansion, where she is seen looking up to the sky at the balcony.
"On the Loose" is the fourth track off "Flicker", following "Slow Hands", "This Town" and "Too Much to Ask". Niall first performed "On the Loose" at Channel 93.3's Summer Kick Off Concert at San Diego's Mattress Firm Amphitheatre on May 12, 2017.
Talking about the single in an interview with Herald Sun, Niall admitted that he channeled Fleetwood Mac for the song. "You can hear the 'Mac in that. Everyone's always trying to write their own dreams. I'm only 24," he said. "Fleetwood Mac is the music I've listened to since I was four years old. I listen to a lot of other types of music but that's the stuff that always stuck around with me."
"I was going through a punk rock phase when I was 15, I like punk rock now but I wouldn't pick up my iPod and go straight to it," he continued. "I'd probably go to the 'Mac and Crosby Stills and Nash and Jackson Browne and Tom Petty. They're the artists in my head, you can hear that on the album I think."
Niall is currently gearing up for a world tour, which will kick off next month, in support of his debut solo album. He will be joined by country singer Maren Morris.
