Discussing the recording process of his project, Harry explained that he was high most of the time: “We’d do mushrooms, lie down on the grass, and listen to Paul McCartney’s Ram in the sunshine. We’d just turn the speakers into the yard.” It wasn't just mushrooms either. Harry revealed that "chocolate edibles were kept in the studio fridge, right next to the blender" and they'd have them with frozen margaritas.

However, it wasn't all fun and games. One specific mushroom trip almost led to Harry losing his tongue. “This is where I was standing when we were doing mushrooms and I bit off the tip of my tongue", Harry divulged in his studio.

"So I was trying to sing with all this blood gushing out of my mouth. So many fond memories, this place.” Essentially, blood, sweat and tears literally went into this album.

As to what this album will sound like? Harry said: "It’s all about having sex and feeling sad.”

He also "spent months roaming Japan" and listening to Van Morrison and Joni Mitchell to find inspiration for it. We can't wait to hear what it sound like.
