Snow Patrol guitarist Johnny McDaid has publicly backed former One Directioner star Harry Styles, insisting that his new music is going to shock the world.
The pair have been working together a lot recently as Harry prepares to launch his solo career.
Speaking to The Press Association, Johnny said that himself and Harry have been friends for a long time and have been working on music together for a long time..
He admitted that the One Direction star is a very talented guy, and he’s really excited about the way he’s sounding as a solo artist.
Johnny said, “Harry is a really prolific artist and a super-talented guy. He’s really authentic and he has an incredible voice, so we’ve been writing a lot of songs. We’ve been writing songs for years together.
“I’m really excited by the way he’s sounding at the minute, he’s such a talent. I think the world is going to be really shocked at what he comes up with.”
Johnny also admitted that himself and Harry’s songwriting sessions are very relaxed and easy going, so much so that they don’t even go to the studio – they work from the comfort of home. We like their style!
He said, “We do the guerrilla thing. I’ve never been in a studio with Harry, we tend to just hang out at his house or mine, or we’ll meet somewhere and set up in a living room.
“It’s just the way he likes to do it and the way I like to do it, so it means that we can order takeaway and kick up ideas.”
Meanwhile, Harry’s former bandmate Zayn Malik has been hitting the charts with his new music, Liam Payne is reportedly dabbling in hip hop music, while Niall Horan has been enjoying the bands hiatus by catching up with friends.
We can’t wait to hear Harry’s new stuff.
If it’s good enough for Johnny it’s good enough for us!
