Harry Styles Wanted To Fill His Album With Songs That Would Make You Feel Something

Harry Styles is still reeling from the rave reviews of his self-titled debut album.

The British singer spoke with USA Today about the record, calling it a “therapy” for him, like many artist do.

With the album, all Harry wanted to do was fill it up with songs that would make you feel something — and he did just that.

“It’s so much easier saying something to an instrument than it is to a person,” he shared, adding that honesty on his songs was one of the most important things to him.

“I really didn’t want to be editing lyrics and pulling stuff out. I kind of decided early on, that every time I said to myself, ‘Can I say this?’ I wanted to say yes,’” Harry says.

Harry adds, “I feel very lucky to be able to travel and play music and work in music, but for me, my favorite artists’ songs aren’t the ones where they’re talking about how great their life is, they’re not the stories you want to hear. You want to know why they chose to be alone somewhere, I think that’s the stuff that makes you feel something. (That’s) way more interesting than them telling me they had champagne for dinner.”

One or two songs have triggered fans to think they’re about his former romance with Taylor Swift. But are they?

“I’ve never really felt like I’ve had to explain my personal life,” Harry said. “And I love that with writing, you get to wrap it up with a song. I understand that people will dissect stuff like that, which is amazing, that people care enough about you to try and figure out what it means.”
