Songwriting credits on FOUR, based on BMI, ASCAP, and APRA AMCOS listings. Songs in blue don’t have any members of 1D credited. Songs in red have incomplete listings or no listing at all - as far as I know there’s nothing anywhere about Act My Age, and APRA AMCOS has a character limit on the composer field that has left some of its listings incomplete - it only lists Liam, Louis, and Niall on Change Your Ticket, where BMI lists the entire band, so it’s possible/likely that the same thing happened to the listings for Fool’s Gold and Night Changes.

Absolutely talented person. Awesome hairdo, right? I was here in LA and I got a call, “hey, you wanna go to the studio and do some writing?” and this and that, and I say, “yeah, of course, of course.” And they were like, “what do you think of Harry Styles being in on the writing session?” And I said, “yeah, why not? You know, let’s give it a shot.” ‘Cause I’d only heard good things about Harry from other people that I knew. I was curious, I was like “yeah, let’s give it a shot and see what happens.” Because, look, at the end of the day if you have a bad day in the studio it’s just one day. He was great, honestly. We got in the studio, he was really respectful and he was nice. I sat down at the piano and he’s over there, you know, he’s standing next to me and what not and we’re all, kind of, throwing ideas out. I sang an opening line and he immediately followed it up with another line. And I thought, “oh, look what we have here. Yeah, yeah, this guy’s gonna bring it today.” So, a few hours later we pretty much had the majority of a song completed. A song I think sounds beautiful, it’s a special song. It’s called “Not Our Fault” and I think it’s a winner. It’s about… if it doesn’t work out sometimes you can’t necessarily just blame it on yourselves, you know, sometimes it’s what’s going on around you. Sometimes it’s other things that have nothing to do with the two people involved, those factors that you can’t control. It touches on that type of subject. It’s a way of saying you’re giving up, but it’s not necessarily you’re giving up because you don’t love each other.

Great, very funny. He’s very silly and very sweet. Very professional, and never too serious. Like I would be singing in the booth and I would cut a vocal and he’d be like ‘Oh, that was terrible, you should try it again,’ like joking. He was very nice, very very sweet guy.
Ariana Grande on the question; What was he [Harry Styles] like to work with? x (via haikunarry)
