He’s setting short term goals at the moment.

Harry Styles Talks Going Solo, Zayn Malik And More In Ryan Seacrest Interview

Harry Styles will most likely go solo eventually, but for now he’s focused on One Direction.

That’s the gist we got from Styles’ new interview with Ryan Seacrest on On Air today (June 4), who also opened up about what it’s like writing new material for their next studio album sans Zayn Malik.

“The creative process — it’s very similar to be honest, but it was cool how some of the things came out sounding because actually there was a lot of parts that kind of needs to get written with Zayn in mind and with all of us in mind. It’s great, the new stuff sounds good so far I think? I hope. So we hope that people like it.”

When Styles isn’t busy penning songs for their next record (out later this year), he’s contributing towards artists like Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor.

“We all write. We all enjoying writing so much that sometimes you write a song you like that just doesn’t necessarily work,” he explains about collaborating with other artists. “So I think we’re all just having a lot of fun writing. It’s also nice kind of writing from different point of views and writing for other people is definitely fun.”

As for whether he plans on going solo eventually, he avoids answering yes or no, simply stating he’ll follow through on the group’s On the Road Again World Tour and their next studio effort.

“We have the album and the tour that we’re working on right now. I think when you have so many goals that you feel like you have yet to achieve, it’s hard to kind of see past those. It’s important to kind of focus on what’s going on and don’t kind of lose track. So we’re all working hard towards the same thing right now, and I don’t think we’re thinking much past that. I think we’re just having a lot of fun and we’re working hard and we’re having a good time.”

We think it’s only a matter of time until Styles decides to split and work on solo material, though we’ll hate to see the demise of one of our generation’s biggest boy bands ensue.
