Downtown Signs Global Publishing Agreement With Niall Horan

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Downtown Music Publishing is thrilled to announce 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 #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 #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 every one of the group's five albums. In 2015, 1D set the record for most Top 10 song debuts, including the multi-platinum Horan co-write "Story of My Life," which topped the global charts.
