Harry Styles once again joins Zane Lowe on Apple Music to talk all things his third album, 'Harry's House', which drops this Friday.

Styles on what he feels he learned during the pandemic:
"You're never going to be up here forever, so you better find something else that makes you happy, because the best people who are truly unicorns of music are the ones who do it and then are gone. So you never see them anywhere else. And eventually they're up here enough that when they come back, it matters. And for a really long time, I was terrified of what my life was if I wasn't up here doing music, on a show, doing something. And then you're faced with a time when you can't do that. And the great leveler of doesn't matter how much money you have, doesn't matter where you lived, doesn't matter this, doesn't matter that. You can't travel, you can't do this, you can't go outside your house. Suddenly you're forced to not be this musician guy, you're forced to be a friend and a brother and a son, and all of those things. And actually feel like I kind of had a little bit of a chance to focus on that at least for a moment and just stop and kind of take in a lot of stuff and remember things. And you're kind gifted this stolen time and you feel like, "Oh, I can get a head start. I can just start making stuff." And I kind of stopped for a second and looked at what I turned to listen to and what I was watching and all that kind of stuff and was like, "What does it actually mean to make something? And what does it mean to me to make something as my job?”"

Styles on the power of therapy:
"I find therapy to be a really good example of it, because I feel like for a really long time I kind of emotionally coasted. I didn't really feel anything. And we'd go through real highs in the band and stuff, and it would always just feel like a relief. Like, "Oh, we didn't fail. That feels like a massive relief." I never really felt like I celebrated anything. And I had a great time. Like, truly. And I think sometimes, with therapy as an example, is you open a bunch of doors in your house that you didn't know existed, you find all these rooms and you get to explore them. And then in a time when it would be easier to emotionally coast, you can no longer do that. Because you know the room exists and the scale has just widened. And you feel everything that's bad so much harder, you feel the good moments so much harder. And there's obviously moments when you're at this end, where you go, "Is it worth opening the windows and finding the other space?" Because…”If you do this, you never have to go there. But if you don't do this, then you never get…”"
