Harry Styles has revealed more details about his forthcoming solo album, including how he's taking Adele's lead when it comes to getting stuff done.

In an interview set to be broadcast in full on Nick Grimshaw's BBC Radio 1 show tomorrow morning, Styles said that he had been chatting to Adele on and off, and he greatly admired how she does things.

"I've spoken to her a little bit, she knows one of the guys that I wrote [the album] with a lot," he said. But I don't think so much advice, I just like how she does stuff. I think she leads by example. She's the biggest, she's amazing, she's the best - so she should be the biggest. The thing with her is she's a different thing, she's just good at it, I like how she does everything, it looks very nice."

He added: "For my 21st she gave me one of her albums, '21', and said 'I did some pretty cool stuff when I was 21, good luck' and I was like, jeez."

He also revealed that the album was recorded in Jamaica last year when he finished working on Christopher Nolan's 'Dunkirk', and he had written 30 songs in all - and he even discussed how cutting off his lucious tresses for his first film role made him feel 'naked'.

The full interview, as well as the world premiere of his debut solo single 'Sign of the Times', will be broadcast tomorrow morning.
