Harry Styles Proves He’s A Better Musician Than His Former One Direction Bandmates In Live Studio Session

Harry Styles Proves He's The Real Deal With Video Of Live Studio Recording featureHarry Styles has offered up an extended teaser for his upcoming Apple Music documentary. A new video showing the live studio recording of his song “Two Ghosts” is out now, and Harry proves he doesn’t have to act when it comes to his music.

Complete with a six-piece band, Harry nails the track while strumming along on an acoustic guitar. He may have to keep checking his fingers to make sure he’s hitting the right chords, but that doesn’t stop him from delivering an emotional vocal performance on the breakup ballad.

It’s enough to shut down anyone who might’ve doubted the former boy band member’s musical prowess. Unsurprisingly, the clip also offers up a look at another of Harry’s unconventional style choices.

Harry Styles Reflects On His One Direction Days As He Takes Fans “Behind The Album”

Harry Styles stars in Apple Music documentary-2Harry Styles’ first solo album is here and now the singer is allowing fans to get a glimpse of the creation process. “Behind the Album” premiered on Apple Music on Monday and features the singer getting his hair chopped off for his role in “Dunkirk,” recording sessions and even the singer’s thoughts on being in One Direction.

“When you leave a band, a boy band, you feel like you have to go the complete other direction and kind of say ‘Don’t worry everyone, I hated it, it wasn’t me,'” the singer says about how artists like Zayn have transitioned themselves into solo stardom. “I loved it,” Harry proudly admits. “I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for that band and I don’t feel like I have to apologize for that.”

While Harry’s statement about his time in One Direction is sweet, there’s something about the black-and-white filter that just makes the inclusion seem like a goodbye.
