The forecast calls for a lot more Niall Horan, as the singer has announced the title and release date for his highly anticipated sophomore album. Heartbreak Weather will arrive everywhere on March 13, and Horan is celebrating the announcement with another look at what to expect.
“No Judgement” is a vibrant and vibey new tune for Niall, effortlessly gliding over a plucky guitar. It comes with an equally vivacious video featuring a lovely couple doing them to the fullest.
Heartbreak Weather comes three years after Horan’s solo debut Flicker landed in 2017. He has said to expect something different this time around, learning more about his sound after touring the world on his first album.
“Yes it’s gonna be quite different,” Niall told RADIO.COM in October. “The first album, as I’ve been saying a lot recently, it represented exactly how I felt at the time. I wanted to sit down, pick up an acoustic guitar and write ballads. It matched how I was feeling emotionally, how I wanted to announce myself onto the music industry as a solo artist. Having toured for a year, I get to look out at my fans every night of the week, and get a real feel for what makes them sad, what makes them happy, what makes them jump around, what makes them want to rip the rood off the arena.”
It’s been a lesson for Horan, who hopes the two albums will make a perfect pair when he’s ready to return to the road. “I’ve got a good mixture,” he added. “It’s definitely a good transition into the next chapter for me musically. I haven’t gone too crazy but I’ve definitely stepped it up a little bit I think.”
Heartbreak Weather is out everywhere on March 13.
