Harry Styles says he got help from Ed Sheeran when he was picking the tracks for his debut solo album.
“I played him a few songs after the album was finished,” Harry told the Radio 1 Breakfast Show. “He didn’t say that he didn’t like any but he did like one song that isn’t on the album.”
One of the songs on the album he wrote in the days before One Direction, admitting it’s “a few years” old.
His debut has become his “favourite album to listen to”.
Harry says: “I think if you put out something that you don’t stand behind and really love, then if it doesn’t go well then you could regret not doing what you wanted to do.
“Whereas if nothing happens with it, I love it.”
When it comes to his love life, Harry says it’s been a while since he’s met someone special.
“I haven’t dated in a long time really because I went away to do the movie [Dunkirk], then did the album.
For a while, he says, he used to research potential dates online, before meeting up in person.
“Then I said I’m not going to do that anymore, it’s impossible to go in without a perception of someone and you’ve never met them and I started feeling like that was wrong and weird.”
