Harry 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.
