Speaking to NME this week, the Irish singer songwriter responded to Lewis Capaldi's dream group being himself alongside Horan, Ed Sheeran and Elton John.

“Well now I have to put him in it," said the Mullingar man. "Me and him, with…that’s a great question. Elton’s a legend to be fair. In all senses of the word. Lewis and I have got to know Elton a bit, and he’s so funny. And Dave Grohl. Dave Grohl, myself, Elton John and Lewis Capaldi. What a line-up!”

In the interview, Horan also spoke about his desire to play Glastonbury some day.

“At some point I’d absolutely love to, yeah. I won’t be doing it this year, but yeah if the Eavis family are listening out, give me a shout.”

The 29-year-old says he is excited about touring his new album at festivals, admitting he gets "jealous" when he sees big acts headline the iconic Somerset event.

“You know what it’s like at a festival, all the big fans are down the front and they’re in the first 200 deep. So you’re playing to them, but you’re also playing to the wider audience who are not necessarily there for you. I’m excited about that.

"We’ll have fun on stage, and we’ll be playing the new record so it’ll be exciting anyway; we’re playing live for the first time in years. Playing for the fans and seeing them, and hopefully a few more people get an album or something like that [or] come to a gig further down the line.”
