Harry Styles uses inspiration from ‘sadness and sex’ to write his music.
The One Direction star’s songs are always instant hits, and the 25 year old has finally revealed just where he gets the inspiration from to write his music.
Speaking on Later… with Jools Holland, Harry was asked by the show’s host what his album is about, to which he responded: “Typical stuff really, like being sad, having sex and stuff. It’s what everything’s about really.”
Jools then joked he should change the name of his show to Sadness and Sex and Harry added: “But not sad sex, sad sex is… no.”
The pop star also revealed his second solo album is “more fun” than his debut, self-titled LP which he released in 2017.

Tickets for Harry’s worldwide tour in 2020 went on sale today [Friday 22 November], selling out within minutes.
