Today, Capitol Records recording artist Niall Horan shared “Nice To Meet Ya” – the first single from his forthcoming album – and the accompanying video. A sublime piece of piano-driven pop with a soulful groove and bright hand percussion, “Nice To Meet Ya” provides the perfect backdrop to Horan’s magnetic vocals and playful yet heartfelt lyrics. He co-wrote the song with his longtime collaborator Julian Bunetta (Maroon 5, Jessie Ware), who also produced, Tobias Jesso, Jr. (Florence + the Machine, Adele) and Ruth-Anne Cunningham (John Legend, Pentatonix).

Niall Horan says, “It’s been nearly two years since I released Flicker and I can’t wait to get going again. Writing ‘Nice To Meet Ya’ in particular, was a special one for me. It gave me a chance to experiment musically and I’m so excited to finally share it with everyone.”


The official video was directed by The Young Astronauts and shot in London. Download / stream “Nice To Meet Ya” HERE. View the video HERE.

Originally from Mullingar, Ireland, Horan has sold over 80 million records and toured the globe multiple times as part of the iconic One Direction.

Jeff Langlois

It took a one-way road trip for Jeff Langlois to cultivate a passion for photography. The adventure to LA brought forth stunning deserts and mountainous peaks, as he drove from Minneapolis through the Rockies – in a 2002 Honda Civic; eager to jumpstart a career at a commercial house called The Mill. The best way to balance out the fast-paced, unpredictable, and ever-changing environment that is advertising, was to break away and see what the west coast really looks like. Traveling solo allowed him to arrive in beautiful destinations and wait for these locations to unveil their scenic characteristics. Jeff notes that the best shots always come unexpectedly. Now while still mainly shooting the outdoors, he plans just enough to get him out and moving around, but his best and most memorable shots come unexpectedly. It’s about showing up and being patient and receptive to what’s going on.

EVOLIX

Evolix is a contemporary pop group comprised of two siblings – Alexis and Korina. In 2016, the Boston natives officially began releasing songs under their current stage moniker. Having drawn a significant amount of influence from recording artists like Zedd, Jessie J and Dua Lipa, their original compositions primarily consist of dance-pop as well as EDM.  “Evolix strives to make a global impact where the lives of all are affected in some way by the empowering messages we are trying to promote,” said Korina.

Although both members contribute to Evolix equally, Korina is the principal songwriter of the group. She has built her foundation of lyrical content upon love, empowerment, heartbreak and other life experiences which teenagers face such as depression. The group’s other lead vocalist, Alexis, often provides the aesthetics which enhance her younger sister’s vision. “Because Korina and I are so close, we are able to play to each other’s strengths, and we are able to understand the overall creative vision. I can create a visual that will portray the true underlying message of Korina’s music,” said Alexis.

About Katy Perry:

Katy made her Capitol Records debut with 2008’s One of the Boys after signing to the label in 2007. She cemented her status as a global superstar with the follow-up album, Teenage Dream (2010), which made her the only female artist (tied with Michael Jackson) to have five No. 1 singles from one album on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (“California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream,” “Firework,” “E.T.” and “Last Friday Night”). PRISM, her 2013 album, debuted at No. 1 on iTunes in 100 countries and has sold more than 12.5 million adjusted albums worldwide.

Katy Perry’s fourth studio album, WITNESS, debuted in June at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200, and No. 1 on iTunes in 46 countries. It set the record for the biggest week for an album by a female artist in 2017. The certified Platinum lead single, “Chained To The Rhythm,” has over 1 billion streams worldwide, views on the accompanying video made her the most-viewed female artist on VEVO. Follow-up singles, “Bon Appetit” (whose music video was Katy’s fastest viewed music video of all time, with 14.2 million views in the first 24 hours) is certified Gold, and “Swish Swish” is now certified Platinum. Globally, it has achieved more than 2 billion cumulative streams and sold more than two million adjusted albums.

Current single “Never Really Over “is certified GOLD and was the biggest streaming launch of Katy’s musical career. “Small Talk” was released on August 9th.

In her 10 years with Capitol, she has racked up a cumulative 35 billion streams alongside worldwide sales of more than 45 million adjusted albums and 135 million tracks. With the singles “Roar,” “Firework,” and “Dark Horse” each surpassing the 10 million threshold including song sales and streams, Katy became the first artist to earn three RIAA Digital Single Diamond Awards. She is one of only five artists in history to have topped 100 million certified units with their digital singles – and the first-ever Capitol Records recording artist to join the elite RIAA 100 Million Certified Songs club. Katy’s 2015 Super Bowl performance is the highest-rated in the event’s history. She is the most-followed person globally on Twitter, and the first to surpass 100 million followers. She was the first female artist to have four videos surpass a billion views each. Her videos for “Firework” and “Last Friday Night” have over one billion views, while “Roar” and “Dark Horse” have surpassed the two billion mark.

Aside from being one of the best-selling musical artists of all time, Katy is an active advocate of many philanthropic causes. In 2013, Katy was appointed a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador as a result of her commitment to improving the lives of children worldwide. From traveling to Vietnam and Madagascar to highlight the needs of some of the world’s most vulnerable children, to recording PSAs about the importance of empowering girls and supporting adolescents living with HIV/AIDS, as well as raising awareness for UNICEF’s emergency relief efforts, Katy has used her powerful voice to advocate for children and support UNICEF’s mission to ensure every child’s right to health, education, equality, and protection. She was awarded with the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award in 2016.

Katy has also been a champion for LGBTQ+ equality. She has received numerous awards for her work, including the Trevor Project’s Hero Award in 2012, the Human Rights Campaign’s National Equality Award in 2017, and amfAR’s Award of Courage in 2018.
