Niall Horan is going big in the run-up to the release of his second studio album, 'Heartbreak Weather'. The highly-anticipated album drops this Friday, March 13, and to add to the hype, the British heartthrob has been holding a week-long residency on 'The Late Late Show With James Corden'. 

So far, the singer has already reviewed his One Direction days, gulped down hot wings, and also pulled out two electrifying performances of the lead singles from his latest 'Heartbreak Weather' record. He performed a guitar-driven arrangement of 'Nice To Meet Ya' on the first night of his residency (March 10), and then followed that up with a softer, piano-led ballad called 'Put Your Love On Me' on night two.

And on Wednesday night, March 11, Niall teamed up with James Corden for a memorable spoof of The Proclaimers smash hit, 'I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)'. Whether it was a tense hostage standoff, a dying person in need of resuscitation, or someone about to jump off a building, Niall and James would be there, ready and willing to walk 500 miles to diffuse the situation. We guarantee you'll yell out a triumphant "Da da da!" after watching the hilarious, elaborate sketch.

Niall then closed out the night with a riveting live performance of his newest single, 'No Judgement', which featured Niall taking a walking tour of the 'Late Late Show' set, fist-bumping fans and interacting with the various people he ran into as he made his way around the huge studio.

The official music video for the track just dropped last week too, and it's certainly a hoot! Speaking about the track 'No Judgement', Niall had previously said, “This song kind of sums up the whole album in terms of the electric guitar sound and the groove and feel of it. And then the lyric is a great message: it’s something I want people to hear."

Elaborating on the song's message, Horan said, "I think the first line of the chorus is: ‘When you’re with me, no judgment, you can get that from everyone else.’ We all just seem to love judging each other – giving s*** to each other online, just being s*** to each other. So it’s kind of like an arm-round-the-shoulder type song, but with a bit of attitude to it. It’s got a ‘come on over to my house’ sexy element to it, because it’s a true story. It’s about this situation where we don’t have to explain to each other why we keep on going in and out of each others’ lives because it just happens.” Niall Horan's second solo record 'Heartbreak Weather' releases on March 13, so make sure you catch it then!
