Interviewers of the world, gather round. Research is hard. I get it. When you’re interviewing one of the hottest musical groups in the world, the pressure is on! You need to ask the hard hitting questions. Questions like:
Who is single? Who would die first in the Hunger Games? If you were doing anything else in the entire world other singing, what would it be? Can I have a kiss?
These questions are intense, a bit uncomfortable, and exactly what all fans are dying to know. Kudos to you, interviewers. You are doing great work. I can understand why you gloss over easier questions in excitement to prove your abilities. While you have been slaving away coming up with these unique, probing questions, I have been compiling a list of easy questions for you to ask the next time you run out of material.
For the whole band:
1. Did you have a discussion about the rockier/folky sound before starting to record Midnight Memories or did it happen organically as you began to write?
2. How many songs did you record before paring it down to the 14 songs on the album?
3. Do you think recording on the road gave the music a more authentic sound or would you preferred to have recorded in a studio?
4. Which song is the most challenging for each of your voices?
5. When you collaborate with other artists do you have some lyrics already written, an idea in mind, or do you start from scratch during the meeting?
1. How many songs are you providing instrumentals for on the album in addition to vocals?
2. You’ve mentioned you are learning to play banjo, is there a chance you will play a bit on the upcoming tour?
1. Can you speak a little about your songwriting process? When did you first begin to pen lyrics?
2. Did you feel more nervous of the reception of Midnight Memories than your previous two because of your increased role?
1. How does it feel to be a part of an indie band?
2. The songs you co-wrote have roots in folk. What about this genre of music appeals to you? Which musicians inspired your interest in folk?
1. We know you are a gifted artist, did you have any creative input in the album artwork. Would you like to for future albums?
2. How do you do the thing? With your voice? And the notes? Do you have to warm up with a vocal coach or does it just naturally happen?
1. Your vocals are featured much more heavily on this album than your previous two and you have co-written the majority of the songs. What prompted you to take such a massive role in the creative process for this album?
2. When did you begin to write lyrics and how did you gain confidence in your songwriting abilities?
3. Strong. Can you explain?
Let’s just email-bomb major media outlets with this list of questions, yes? They are perfect.
yes. i would very much like to read this interview
After watching these last few gif sets of Harry talking and licking his lips I can 100% confirm that the clenching of my vagina is directly connected to him licking his lips. Jesus fuck it’s like there’s a switch in his mouth.
I think they should use this case to demonstrate classical conditioning in psychology classes. Pavlov’s dogs is so out of touch with today’s generation.
