"It's just brilliant. I'm so excited for everyone to hear it."
She added: "He's so lovely. I honestly didn't know what to expect because we hadn't actually met in real life until we got in the studio for this song.
"So I was a bit like 'What is this is going to be like? Is he going to be talented, is he going to be nice?'
"And he was both, he is so talented. He's amazing at playing guitar, piano.
"He was going for it and now we're just really good friends. And I've made a really good friend out of this collaboration."
I've always wanted to write with @AnneMarie as I love her voice. This was the first song we wrote together, I love it and can’t wait for you to hear it. ❤️— Niall Horan (@NiallOfficial) May 13, 2021

The Voice star Anne-Marie also spoke about her battle with mental health and said: "It's sometimes weird for people to hear that I have suffered with anxiety because they say 'How do you get up on stage?' and I'm like 'I don't know, because I hate people looking at me'.

She continued: "I had no idea about my brain really. I can say about three years ago, I still didn't understand anything about mental health. It was only when I saw people talking about it online and on the TV.
"So I feel so strongly about that. And I want to be so open with everyone, I want everyone to know that.
"You know, it might look like you're happy and you have everything but you still have things going on up here that you can't see. So I want to talk about it all the time."
