English singer and songwriter Harry Styles has written and recorded songs for his debut studio album Harry Styles (2017) and five One Direction studio albums (2011–15)—Up All Night, Take Me Home, Midnight Memories, Four, and Made in the A.M.—and has written songs for other singers. Styles worked with Jeff Bhasker, Mitch Rowland, Alex Salibian, Tyler Johnson, and Ryan Nasci on his album, including the lead single "Sign of the Times", which peaked at number one on the UK Singles Chart.[1] Styles conceptualised the song as the situation of "a mother [giving] birth to a child and there’s a complication. The mother is told, 'The child is fine, but you’re not going to make it.'"—an analogy the singer uses to allude to the "fundamental" injustices present in life and modern society.[2] Of the song, Bhasker said "Harry really led the charge with that one, and the rest of the album".[2]

Aside from writing material for his debut album, Styles has worked with other artists on songs that have been included on their albums, notably for the boy band One Direction of which he is a member. After co-writing several songs on Up All Night and Take Me Home together with his bandmates and other producers, Styles worked with Savan Kotecha and Carl Falk to write "Happily", and Gary Lightbody of Snow Patrol and Jacknife Lee to write "Something Great", both of which appeared on Midnight Memories. Styles co-wrote the song "Just a Little Bit of Your Heart" with Johan Carlsson which was included on Ariana Grande's second studio album My Everything (2014). He also co-wrote the song "I Love You" with Carlsson which was recorded by Alex & Sierra for their debut studio album. Styles co-wrote several songs on Four including "Where Do Broken Hearts Go" and "Stockholm Syndrome". He contributed to several songs on Made in the A.M. including the second single "Perfect", which peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart.[3] Styles co-wrote the song "Someday" with Meghan Trainor which was recorded by Trainor and Michael Bublé for the latter's ninth studio album, Nobody but Me (2016). With Jack Antonoff and Ilsey Juber, Styles co-wrote "Alfie's Song (Not So Typical Love Song)", released as a single by Bleachers, for the soundtrack of the film Love, Simon (2018).
