In an interview with Rolling Stone, Harry Styles opens up about his upcoming new solo album.

Harry’s new album has a much older sound compared to when he was in One Direction; when asked about the pressure to cater his solo career to an older crowd, styles responded with:

“Who’s to say that young girls who like pop music — short for popular, right? — have worse musical taste than a 30-year-old hipster guy,” Styles questioned. “That’s not up to you to say. Music is something that’s always changing. There’s no goal posts. Young girls like the Beatles. You gonna tell me they’re not serious?”

“How can you say young girls don’t get it? They’re our future. Our future doctors, lawyers, mothers, presidents, they kind of keep the world going.”

Although Harry’s music leans toward an older demographic, Harry is still just as grateful for his younger fanbase. “Teenage-girl fans — they don’t lie. If they like you, they’re there. They don’t act ‘too cool.’ They like you, and they tell you. Which is sick.”
