RTÉ has announced that multi-platinum selling artist Niall Horan is, right this moment, in a studio with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra recording an exclusive performance for a new show which will air on RTÉ One this May.

In a first for the singer-songwriter, he and his band will be joined by 45 members of the RTÉ Concert Orchestra as they perform a selection of songs from his debut solo No.1 album ‘Flicker’, with special arrangements by conductor Gavin Murphy.

Later today Horan will also speak exclusively to 2FM’s Eoghan McDermott about music and life.

This unique and intimate recording session will be filmed at RTÉ Radio’s iconic Studio 1 and will be broadcast on RTÉ One television next month.

“I made an album that came from the heart, my heart is in Ireland and I feel that there’s no better way than to go on national television and play those songs with a 45-piece orchestra,” said Horan. “And the RTÉ Concert Orchestra is one of the best in Europe, if not the world.”

“All of us at the RTÉ Concert Orchestra are really looking forward to working with Niall and his band,” added Gavin Murphy.

“Studio 1 is a very special place for music and we are very excited about playing our arrangements of his great songs. We had a rehearsal on Friday and there was a bit of magic in the air.”

“Hopefully this will give his fans around the world a chance to hear Niall performing his big hits in a brand new way.”

Horan has been touring the country in recent weeks playing to sold-out crowds at the 3Arena, SSE Arena and the INEC in Killarney.
