Harry's new hair cut isn't the only thing "blowing the socks off the world" it seems...

Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid (AKA the future Mr Cox), recently spoke with the Press Association regarding his work with Styles (they've been "writing songs for years together") and had this insight into the One Directioner's solo material: "I've been friends with Harry for a long time, and we've written together a lot. Harry is a really prolific artist and a super-talented guy. He's really authentic and he has an incredible voice, so we've been writing a lot of songs. We've been writing songs for years together." Very long songs. 

The compliments didn't end there, with the keyboardist and guitarist adding: "I'm really excited by the way he's sounding at the minute, he's such a talent. I think the world is going to be really shocked at what he comes up with."

As for when we're all going to the blown asunder by this music, McDaid is sketchy on that detail: "I don't know about soon, I don't know how long that is. But I would imagine that Harry would come up with something that's going to be pretty special, and from what I've heard, it'll blow the socks off the world... I've never been in a studio with Harry, we tend to just hang out at his house or mine, or we'll meet somewhere and set up in a living room."

Stop, I'll be imagining pillow fights next. 

39-year-old McDaid has been nominated for an Ivor Novello (thanks to his work with Ed Sheeran), which take place later today.
