In case you didn't know, today is a big day for Niall Horan.
Needless to say, with the world in turmoil, the news stations focused on one topic and people having fist-fights over toilet rolls in supermarkets, music is not a priority for many today.
In short, it's pretty bad timing if you're a pop star releasing a new album.
At least he can see the funny side of it, though:
Surely as far as ‘difficult second albums’ go, I’ve smashed it with my timing

And his fellow Irish musician James Vincent McMorrow even mapped out a plan for him:
first album, surpass preexisting expectation, second album, surpass global virus outbreak. third album, invent time machine.

Even so, it looks like the Nialler fandom is doing the business for him as 'Heartbreak Weather' is already #1 on mutiple countries' iTunes charts.
