There’s something weird happening to all the former One Direction bandmates, with Harry Styles the latest to come out with a shiny new accent.

A clip of the star in conversation with Zane Lowe has gone viral this week after his normal northern-tinged accent sounded distinctly American.

The interview between the pair covers everything from new album Harry’s House to his personal relationships.

Harry has now spent a lot of time in Los Angeles, and the US is clearly rubbing off on his accent.


People were all in a tizz over the transatlantic tint to his voice.

One person commented: “For a band called One Direction, their accents really have gone all over the gaff ain’t they?”


Someone else Tweeted: “First Liam Payne, now Harry styles. They start speaking and you feel like their accent is heading in one direction and then woah, off it goes in another.”

Earlier this year, One Direction fans also lost their minds over Liam Payne’s blended accent on the Oscars red carpet.

One user said about Harry: “just heard harry styles’ new accent and ick doesn’t cover it. his sex appeal has PLUMMETED i am bereft.”
