In an interview with Rolling Stone, Harry Styles admitted he bit off the tip of his tongue while tripping out on mushrooms when he was recording his sophomore album. But that didn’t stop him from singing.
While visiting Shangri-La studios in Malibu, where he recorded some of his second album, Styles recalled the recent experience, “Ah, yes,” he said. “Did a lot of mushrooms in here.”
“We’d do mushrooms, lie down on the grass, and listen to Paul McCartney‘s ‘Ram’ in the sunshine,” he continued. “We’d just turn the speakers into the yard.”
“You’d hear the blender going, and think, ‘So we’re all having frozen margaritas at 10 a.m. this morning,” Styles added, pointing to a corner.
“This is where I was standing when we were doing mushrooms and I bit off the tip of my tongue. So I was trying to sing with all this blood gushing out of my mouth. So many fond memories, this place.”
The former One Direction star went so far as to joke he should name his next album, so far titled HS2 Mushrooms And Blood.
Styles also opened up about more wholesome experiences at Malibu.
“We were here for six weeks in Malibu, without going into the city,” he said. “People would bring their dogs and kids. We’d take a break to play cornhole tournaments. Family values!”
