Niall Horan and Maren Morris are two artists that we wouldn’t have imagined working together a few years ago, but with their beautiful duet “Seeing Blind,” the pair are making pop country history. Taken from Horan’s debut solo album Flicker, the Irish boy bander and American country singer deliver a super sweet love song is the audible equivalent of warm fuzzies. Despite the pair coming from two very different musical backgrounds, they’ve created a song that is hard to not love.
Releasing the music video this week, the pair travelled to Nashville, a city well known to country singer Morris, to record a new, stripped-down version of “Seeing Blind.” Shot in a warmly lit recording studio, the pair bring just as much chemistry to their performance as they do to their love song, delivering a slowed down take on the single that is possibly more powerful than the album version.
Horan and Maren have already been accepted into the country world as a partnership, with the pair performing at the 2017 Country Music Awards. Taking the stage together, the pair performed Morris’ track “I Could Use A Love Song” before going into a shortened version of “Seeing Blind.”
Horan is currently on the Australian leg of his Flicker World Tour, with Morris acting as his tour opener. She’ll also be joining Horan on the Latin America and North America legs of the tour.
“Seeing Blind” is the second big name collaboration Morris has released this year. She also hit the studio with Zedd and Grey for the pop and dance-infused track “The Middle,” showing off her versatility in the recording booth.
