Harry Styles: Singer Opens Up About Famous Flings, Honest New LP
One Direction's Harry Styles goes deep on love, family and his heartfelt new solo debut in our revealing feature.

January 2016. There’s a bench at the top of Primrose Hill, in London, that looks out over the skyline of the city. If you’d passed by it one winter night, you might have seen him sitting there. A lanky guy in a wool hat, overcoat and jogging pants, hands thrust deep into his pockets. Harry Styles had a lot on his mind. He had spent five years as the buoyant fan favorite in One Direction; now, an uncertain future stretched out in front of him. The band had announced an indefinite hiatus. The white noise of adulation was gone, replaced by the hushed sound of the city below.

The fame visited upon Harry Styles in his years with One D was a special kind of mania. With a self-effacing smile, a hint of darkness and the hair invariably described as “tousled,” he became a canvas onto which millions of fans pitched their hopes and dreams. Hell, when he pulled over to the side of the 101 freeway in L.A. and discreetly threw up, the spot became a fan shrine. It’s said the puke was even sold on eBay like pieces of the Berlin Wall. Paul McCartney has interviewed him. Then there was the unauthorized fan-fiction series featuring a punky, sexed-up version of “Harry Styles.” A billion readers followed his virtual exploits. (“Didn’t read it,” comments the nonfiction Styles, “but I hope he gets more than me.”)

But at the height of One D–mania, Styles took a step back. For many, 2016 was a year of lost musical heroes and a toxic new world order. For Styles, it was a search for a new identity that began on that bench overlooking London. What would a solo Harry Styles sound like? A plan came into focus. A song cycle about women and relationships. Ten songs. More of a rock sound. A bold single-color cover to match the working title: Pink. (He quotes the Clash’s Paul Simonon: “Pink is the only true rock & roll colour.”) Many of the details would change over the coming year – including the title, which would end up as Harry Styles – but one word stuck in his head.

Band Au Headcanons

Since people have been asking me about who plays what and things like that I’ll just make a post with my personal headcanons about the band au

  • Pidge, Hunk, Lance, and Allura all go to the same private school
    • I’m just gonna call it Altea Prep for now because i’m so original
  • Lance is a member of color guard along with Shay, Nyma, Rolo, Plaxum, and Florona
  • Pidge plays either oboe or clarinet. Maybe both. Haven’t decided yet
  • Hunk can play a lot of different brass instruments but during marching season he plays tuba/sousaphone and usually plays trumpet during concert season
  • Hunk and Lance used to play trumpet together but Lance eventually dropped out of band after one year to join color guard. He still remembers how to play though
  • Allura is the drum major and plays flute during concert season
  • Coran’s their band director. Always shows favoritism towards Allura but no one can really blame him for that
  • Their school mascot is a lion
  • Shiro, Keith, and Matt go to public school
    • It’s a lot less fancy than Altea Prep
    • Matt doesn’t go to the same school as Pidge because he failed the entrance exam. Also their parents don’t have the money to pay for both their tuitions
    • He was pretty bummed at first but he’s fine with public school
    • The school mascot is a purple cat?? Chinchilla?? No one really knows
  • Keith plays the trumpet
  • Shiro plays snare and bass drum. Most of the time its bass drum during marching season
  • Slav is a quad player. Somehow always ends up standing next to Shiro in the marching block
    • Shiro wishes for death 
  • Matt is on color guard.  
    • Mostly because in that leaked photo he has a staff/stick thing sooo
    • When Pidge invites Lance over sometimes they practice routines together
  • Lotor is their drum major
    • Probably only got the spot because he’s the principal’s son
    • No one really likes him tbh
    • He and Allura are ready to throw down at any second
    • Plays clarinet
  • Kolivan is their band director
  • Ulaz and Thace are tired seniors
    • Thace usually helps Keith with trumpet playing and stuff

Klance specific headcanons

  • Keith always goes to the color guard shows
    • He says that he’s just going to watch/support Matt
    • He’s lying
  • Lance also attends all the concerts
    • He’s supporting Pidge/Hunk/Allura of course
    • He’s totally not going for Keith
    • It just happens that Keith is sitting in a spot where Lance has a clear view of him
    • So it’s not his fault if he stared at Keith the whole time
  • Somehow they always sit together during award ceremonies
    • “The rest of your school is sitting on the opposite side of the stadium Lance”
    • “It’s too far to walk so I’m staying here Mullet”
  • Keith has to tie up his hair in a ponytail before putting on his hat
  • His hair is always a sweaty mess after a performance and he takes his hat off
    • Lance thinks it’s hot
    • No he doesn’t
    • Not now gay feelings
  • Both their schools performed at an amusement park the same day
    • They didn’t want to spend the rest of the day together, its just their mutual friends made them all hang out together
    • They got into a fight at the end of the day and ended up being distracted and losing their friend group
    • Then they took the wrong tram and ended up in the wrong parking lot
    • “What if the school buses left without us”
    • “Fuck”
