In October 2018 I wrote the first song for this record . Both you and I have been waiting for this day for a long time. I had so much fun and a lot of hard moments writing this album and I’m very proud of the record as a body of work. ￼ NOW IT’S YOURS. Dance, laugh, cry, take the lyrics in, do whatever makes you feel it. Thank you for your patience and loyal support as always. I really hope that you love it as much as I love it x PS. Please listen from track one right through to the end, to feel the storyline. Love you all Nialler x
Niall admitted to becoming a much better songwriter during the course of writing this album. He praised his new-found love of poetry and confessed to buying poetry books from Amazon to help him to write songs. He listed Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles as his top inspirations for the evolution of his new sound. Niall went on to speak highly of former bandmates Harry, Louis and Liam but opened up about his feud with Zayn Malik, who went on to quit 1D in 2015 just before a hiatus for the band was announced.
Zayn and Niall had a… some would say, iconic friendship in the band with them being known as Ziall, but this soon deteriorated when Zayn left. Niall admitted to GQ Hype that “Zayn’s been the hardest man to stay in touch with” and said that he is no longer in contact with him.
In a slightly more candid part of the interview, Niall was asked on how he maintains his skin since he is always glowing. Keeping your skin healthy is a necessity for somebody that has a busy schedule like Niall – who has just finished a weeks’ residency at the Late Late Show with James Corden. The superstar went on to share his secret to great skin was using Vitamin C cleanser and serum, then an oil-free moisturiser to finish and he repeats this twice a day.
Niall’s album ‘Heartbreak Weather’ is out now.
