Niall Horan chooses the Tracks of My Years

Niall Horan chooses the Tracks of My Years with music from Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen. There's the daily love song, record and album of the week plus PopMaster.

Niall Horan, one-fifth of the all-conquering boy band One Direction, chooses the Tracks of My Years with music from Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen. In 2010 Niall auditioned as a solo artist for the seventh series of ITV's The X Factor. He failed to progress to the "Boys" category at the "judges' houses", but after judge Nicole Scherzinger suggested he join One Direction with Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson, the group became a reality. Since the band's temporary hiatus Niall has recorded his debut solo album which is due to be released this autumn. There's also the daily love song, record and album of the week plus PopMaster.
