Harry Styles Reveals Surprising Meaning Behind 'Sign of the Times'

Did you guess that Harry Styles‘ new single Sign of the Times is about… childbirth?

The 23-year-old singer revealed that the song tells of the story of a mother who dies while giving birth.

“Most of the stuff that hurts me about what’s going on at the moment is not politics, it’s fundamentals,” he told Rolling Stone. “Equal rights. For everyone, all races, sexes, everything. … ‘Sign of the Times’ came from ‘This isn’t the first time we’ve been in a hard time, and it’s not going to be the last time.’”

“The song is written from a point of view as if a mother was giving birth to a child and there’s a complication,” he added. “The mother is told, ‘The child is fine, but you’re not going to make it.’ The mother has five minutes to tell the child, ‘Go forth and conquer.’”

ICYMI, see what Harry had to say about his ex Taylor Swift and his former One Direction bandmate Zayn Malik in the same interview.
