Harry Styles has admitted that a follow-on from Harry’s House could be on the way.

The former One Direction star released his third record back in May, and it immediately shot up to number one, and became the longest running chart-topper of the year so far. 

Harry’s House spawned the hit single As It Was, and during his cover interview with Rolling Stone, it sounds like new music could be on the way soon. 

He told the publication: “I'm always writing. I think all of us are so excited to get back to it, which feels insane because we’ve just put an album out.”

The Daylight singer also confirmed he and regular collaborators Kid Harpoon and Tyler Johnson had marked stops on his world tour as studio sessions so they could get straight to work while on the road. 

Harry’s House will be a tough act to follow, with As It Was became the hit-maker’s most successful solo single in the UK, and it’s also the longest running number one of 2022 so far. 

Elsewhere in the interview, Harry opened up about his burgeoning movie career, and his upcoming role in My Policeman.

The period drama focuses on police officer Tom (Styles) who is secretly gay. He marries Marion (Emma Corrin) to fit the societal norms of 1950s Brighton. 

With a number of intimate scenes within the film, Harry has described filming the moments as “sensitive” and “loving.”

He said: "So much of gay sex in film is two guys going at it, and it kind of removes the tenderness from it.

"There will be, I would imagine, some people who watch it who were very much alive during this time when it was illegal to be gay."

Not only is My Policeman on the way, but Don’t Worry Darling, starring Florence Pugh, will also land in cinemas later this year. 

Meanwhile, Harry doesn’t have long to go until he finds out of Harry’s House will bag him a prestigious Mercury Prize.

The award is said to recognise and acknowledge the best British or Irish album of the last 12 months with past winners including Pulp, Skepta and PJ Harvey.

Harry will face off against the likes of Sam Fender, Little Simz and Wet Leg on 8th September.
