“On The Loose”
20 February, 2018
Niall Horan, John Ryan, Julian Bunetta
Horan debuted the song on 13 May 2017, five months before the album's release, during his performance at Channel 93.3's Summer Kick Off concert in San Diego. On 29 May 2017, Horan performed the song on The Today Show's Citi Concert Series.
Horan admitted in an interview with Australian newspaper Herald Sun that he channelled Fleetwood Mac for the song. "You can hear the 'Mac in that. Everyone's always trying to write their own Dreams. Fleetwood Mac is the music I've listened to since I was four years old. I listen to a lot of other music but that's the stuff that always stuck with me."
Horan announced on 5 February 2018 via social media that the song would be the fourth single from Flicker. The accompanying single artwork, illustrated by Kyler Martz, features a drawing of a woman holding a heart, surrounded by flowers, some of which have legs and eyes on them. An animated lyric video for the song was released on 12 February 2018, but quickly removed when claims of plagiarism surfaced.
