We're living for Niall Horan's folksy side!

How to Watch

Watch The Voice Mondays and Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

In 2021,The Voice Coach performed a laid-back rendition of the gorgeous tune "Dreams" by Fleetwood Mac, and he sang it in a high key that totally showed off his range. You can watch it here.

The cover started out with Horan strumming some chords on his acoustic guitar. "Now here you go again; you say you want your freedom. Well, who am I to keep you down?" he sang with a subtle rasp in his voice.

"It's only right that you should play the way you feel it, but listen carefully to the sound of your loneliness," he continued, flipping into some impressive falsetto. 

"Like a heartbeat, drives you mad in the stillness of remembering what you had, and what you lost, and what you had, and what you lost," he crooned with emotion. 

"Oh, thunder only happens when it's raining. Players only love you when they're playing. Say, women, they will come and they will go, when the rain washes you clean, you'll know, you'll know," he sang the second verse, closing his eyes and immersing himself into the music.

"Now here I go again; I see the crystal vision. I keep my visions to myself, but it's only me who wants to wrap around your dreams and have you any dreams you'd like to sell, dreams of loneliness?" he continued the introspective lyrics.

He then immediately jumped into the second chorus without taking a breath. "Like a heartbeat, drives you mad, in the stillness of remembering what you had, and what you lost, and what you had, ooh, what you lost," he riffed softly. 

"Thunder only happens when it's raining, players only love you when they're playing. Women, they will come and they will go; when the rain washes you clean, you'll know," he repeated, bringing the song to a tender conclusion. 

This lovely cover is just another reminder of what Horan has to offer with his musical talent.

In an interview with NBC Insider, Horan opened up about what fans should expect from his upcoming album The Show, out this summer. 

“It feels really good. Feels the most mature. Again, I haven't released music since I was 25 or 26, and to be closing in on 30, I think you just gather more information as you go. So I'm starting to hear all of that stuff [in] my music. And what I'm saying is a bit more grown up, I guess. And I wanted the sound of that to match what I'm saying. So I think it's my favorite stuff. And the best stuff that I've made,” he said.
