Harry Styles has revealed that he became bored during the early days of the hiatus of One Direction and that motivated him to record his debut solo album.
According to him:
“I took, like, a month and then started to realize I like doing stuff, so I got a little bored. The last couple of One Direction records we made on the road and that was amazing and a lot of fun.”
“And I think for me, I just wanted to be more different from that, I just wanted to get out of somewhere where I had all my friends and where I’d want to go for dinner at a certain time. I just didn’t want to get distracted. I kind of just wanted to very much immerse myself in doing it.”
“I wanted to write something honest and something that I wanted to listen to and I think it’s impossible to not be influenced by stuff that you grow up listening to, you know, stuff that my parents played and stuff that I still listen to now.”
