‘Heartbreak Weather’ includes Niall’s new single, ‘No Judgement’, which has already racked up 55 million combined streams worldwide. Rolling Stone praised it as a “sultry single” and PEOPLE said, “[The song] “conveys a charming message about accepting someone for who they are.”

“Heartbreak Weather’ is nearly a concept album,” explains Niall. “I wanted to write these songs from the start of a relationship through to the end — and from different sides — instead of every song being quite sad and all about me. Because when you go through a breakup, it’s not sad all the time.”

Alongside the  breezy but humid hookup anthem ‘No Judgement’, the heartbroken, ‘Put a Little Love on Me’, and the man-about-town mania of, ‘Nice to Meet Ya’, is a set of songs that ups the energy from Niall’s No. 1 solo debut album, ‘Flicker’.

Tapping influences as wide-ranging as Bruce Springsteen, Arctic Monkeys, and the Weeknd, Niall recorded the album in Los Angeles, London, and the Bahamas, with an all-star team that included Teddy Geiger, Julian Bunetta, Tobias Jesso Jr., Greg Kurstin, Mozella and more.

‘Heartbreak Weather’ sweeps listeners up and onto a journey where the perspective, emotion and music are always shifting. Ultimately, the trip is as healing as it is honest-to-god fun – these songs were made for the stage.

Niall has just wrapped up a weeklong residency on ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’ in the USA. View highlights including performances of ‘Nice To Meet Ya’, ‘Put A Little Love On Me’, ‘No Judgement’, ‘Black and White’, and Carpool Karaoke here.
