    Then Ellen asked whether the album, Fine Line, is about a specific breakup, and Harry expertly dodged the question by talking about the importance of writing music from personal experience.

    "I think if you want your songs to be honest and connect with people, it's usually from writing honestly," Harry explained.

    "It's definitely about what I was going through at the time — and that's good and bad," he went on. "I think this album, while I was making it, the times when I was sad were some of the saddest times of my life, but then at the same time, the times when I was happy were some of the best times I've had in my life. So it's both."

    "It's a fine line!" he joked.
