In a May 12, 2017 interview with BBC 1 Radio’s The Breakfast Show with host Nick “Grimmie” Grimshaw, Styles was asked if the song was indeed about Swift, and Styles clearly wasn’t prepared to answer.
Madhuuu commented: “Harry styles is performing a concert in London and I’m sat here in Delhi trying to study anatomy, life really is not fair”.
“Help me, Jeffrey!”, Styles exclaimed, presumably shouting to a publicist offstage. Actually, once you listen to the song, it is fairly obvious that the “Two Ghosts” lyrics are a nod to his relationship with Swift, even down to the fact that it is an acoustic, country-style track.
“Woke up the girl who looked just like you / I nearly said your name”.
Grimshaw essentially went through Styles’ album track by track, getting some inside scoop on the meanings behind the songs.
Grimshaw said: ‘You’re going to be asked about this, so I’m doing you a favour here.
Harry Styles said he met one of his new band members in a pizza shop as he told of his plans to take the group on tour later this year.
The Apple Music film, Harry Styles: Behind The Album, includes the singer talking about embarking on his solo career and the “pressures” of fame and being part of One Direction.
This week, Styles debuted with his music video for “Sign of the Times” in which he appears flying through the air above the countryside in Scotland. “So the good thing about that is, I feel like I am happy with it”.
The song is written from a point of view as if a mother was giving birth to a child and there’s a complication. Don’t make me go to the lyrics’.
Swift and Styles briefly dated in 2012, and in a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Styles revealed whether he thought his 27-year-old ex-girlfriend wrote “Style” and “Out of the Woods” about their time together.
If you buy the #Haylor theory, the first line describes Swift, who has blue eyes and frequently wears a red lip, while the second is about Styles, who has dozens of tattoos and frequently wears a white t-shirt.
