Niall Horan is going on tour.

The 'This Town' hitmaker has confirmed he and his One Direction bandmates Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson will be getting back together at some point, but for the time being, they are busy with their own ventures, which for him will include a stint out on the road in support of his solo material.

He said: ''It will definitely happen, of course. As I've said many times, we'd be stupid not to.

''It's going to be good when it happens... when it happens I don't know.

''I'm doing this, going to go do a bit of a tour, Harry's got his movie coming out, Louis is doing his thing and Liam's doing his thing.''

While fans will be excited at the thought of seeing the 23-year-old pop star on tour, they'll have to wait a little bit longer to hear his new music as he has pushed back the release of his album in order to work on perfecting the record.

He told Kent 'Smallzy' Small on Nova's Smallzy Surgery: ''I'm looking forward to bringing it out, but again I want to get it right and I don't want to just half a*s it, you know?''

Niall released his debut solo single 'This Town' in September to reassure his fans he had been working hard since his group went on hiatus in 2015, but admitted he wasn't expecting the reaction the record received.

He said: ''We just put it out to kind of let people know that I was actually doing something... I knew the song was good when I wrote it... but the reaction to it has been insane.''
