A third Niall Horan album is definitely in the works! Less than a year after the former One Direction member dropped his second studio album Heartbreak Weather in March 2020, the Irishman told fans in January 2021 that he has new music on the brain.

The “Nice to Meet Ya” singer first teased the tracks via Instagram Stories on January 2, 2021, when responding to fan questions. “Currently writing,” Niall said when someone asked about NH3. “Just figuring it all out currently.” A month later, Niall confirmed via Twitter that, yes, new music was being “worked on” but noted that “it will be a while.”

A few months later, in April 2021, Niall shared some “stuff” on Instagram with fans. One slide included him appearing to record a guitar part in a music studio, another teased a song that he may be working on and a third showed a picture of Niall’s view from he studio! Yep, something is brewing. Of course, the comments were flooded with fans wanting more information on his possible new music, but one comment that struck out was from Niall’s collaborator, Ashe. “What a tease,” she wrote.

While speaking with followers via Twitter in October 2021, Niall revealed that he already has a title for the new record, but is “still writing.”

“I want it to be the best I can possibly make it, so it’s not done ’til I feel that way,” the singer explained, noting, “This is my favorite for sure.”

As fans know, the “No Judgement” crooner had a difficult time with the release of his second studio album. Heartbreak Weather hit streaming services just as the ongoing coronavirus pandemic really started to ramp up and Niall was forced to cancel appearances and live events back when living in a virtual world was somewhat new.

“In terms of work, it’s been very hard for me — I’ve just released an album in the worst timing possible, in the history of mankind,” he expressed during a March 2020 interview with Capital FM, explaining that he used livestreams to connect with fans following the album’s release. Now that staying connected online has become the new norm, Niall’s third album will, no doubt be a total success!
