Niall Horan recently announced he will be the subject of a new documentary appropriately titled “Niall Horan’s Homecoming: The Road to Mullingar,” alongside his best friend and fellow singer Lewis Capaldi.

The documentary, presented by Guinness, will follow Horan and Capaldi for three days as they road trip around Ireland, showcasing both of their insane laughs, singing songs in pubs and just having fun. 

If you have previously seen this duo take Glamour’s Friendship Test, you will know that there will surely be a lot more in store for this documentary than just this simple description. I am expecting this to be a semi comedy show, and I have a feeling I won’t be disappointed.

Guinness notes the documentary was “inspired by Horan’s desire to revisit and reconnect with all that he loves of home; to retrace the origins of the exciting journey he’s on and experience the reality of Ireland today,” which honestly feels like their way of telling me that I should prepare for some nostalgic One Direction feels.

I have been personally waiting for this announcement ever since those viral videos of Horan and Capaldi randomly crashing a street performer’s set in Dublin last August. I knew there had to be more in store from that random encounter, and I was correct.

I hope this documentary gifts me a full performance of the pair singing “Yellow” by Coldplay during that impromptu busking moment, because I scavenged the internet at the time and was only left with a disappointing few seconds. Please do me right.

I am very excited to see what other songs Horan and Capaldi duet together, because I do spend a lot of my time on Youtube rewatching their performance of “Teenage Dream” by Katy Perry from 2019, and I think I am well overdue for an updated binge-worthy duet from the two.

Another fun side note is Horan was just announced to be one of the four judges on the upcoming season of The Voice. Whatever Niall Horan renaissance the world is pulling right now, I am gladly eating it up.

While I am a well-documented, biased Harry Styles fan in terms of the One Direction breakup, I do have a soft spot for Horan, and I think the world deserves more of him. Bring on the documentary!

“Niall Horan’s Homecoming: The Road to Mullingar” premieres in Ireland on Oct. 16, and will hit the rest of the world on Prime Video on Oct. 21.
