Harry Styles looks to past icons on solo debut

Fans have speculated that the song is about Styles' romance with Swift ever since Apple Music released a teaser for a behind the music feature on May 9, 2017 about the former One Direction member's first solo album.

"I appreciate him and Zayn though, their new music shows how creative they can be on their own".

Harry Styles begged for his publicist to intervene when asked if his song Two Ghosts was written about his ex-girlfriend, Taylor Swift. And I love that with writing, you get to wrap it up with a song. He said: "I happened to be driving along and I heard Harry's single". Both songs are about former lovers reuniting and Taylor even references her "red lip classic thing that you like", which mirrors Harry's "same lips red, same eyes blue" lyric in Two Ghosts.

The One Direction singer appeared on BBC Radio 1's Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw to play his debut album, and attempted to deflect questioning as he was probed about the meaning of new track Two Ghosts before it was played.

Ahead of the release of his self-titled debut album tomorrow, Harry hit up Brooklyn's Rough Trade for a secret gig in collaboration with iHeartRadio and Z100. But he stuck with it and elaborated, sort of: "I mean, it's about sometimes things change and you can be doing all the same things".

When asked if Taylor wrote songs about him for her 1989 album, he told Rolling Stone magazine he didn't know. It's always been rumored that her 1989 tracks "Style" and "Out of the Woods" are about the former One Directioner.

Four years later, it seems that Harry Styles has finally penned an ode to Taylor Swift - or at least the internet seems to think so.

With that one, I think it's up to everyone's interpretation, which is obviously an incredibly diplomatic answer. "The mother is told, 'The child is fine, but you're not going to make it.' The mother has five minutes to tell the child, 'Go forth and conquer'". In the times of going, "Oh, can I say that?". Meanwhile their former bandmate Zayn Malik has also found success with his solo album Mind of Mine, released a year ago (16).
