Harry Styles' co-writer says people will be "really shocked" by his solo material
Snow Patrol guitarist Johnny McDaid has said that people are going to be "really shocked" by the solo material that One Direction mainman Harry Styles comes up with.
McDaid, who joined Snow Patrol full-time in 2011, has also co-written a number of big hits for other artists, including a large chunk of Ed Sheeran's hugely successful second album X.
Revealing he is now working with Styles on his solo material, he told the Press Association: "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."
He then gave an insight into what it's like writing with Styles, adding: "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."
Then asked if people would get to hear it soon, McDaid said: "I don't know about soon, I don't know how long that is. But I would imagine that Harry would come up with something that's going to be pretty special, and from what I've heard, it'll blow the socks off the world."
Styles is currently preparing to film his debut movie role. He will star in Dunkirk, the new movie from Christopher Nolan. The film will be the story of the 1940 WWII Dunkirk evacuation project, the British military operation that saved some 330,000 Allied soldiers when they were surrounded by the German army in the small French town of Dunkirk.
One Direction released their fifth album Made In The A.M. at the end of last year and are currently on hiatus.
