Mick Jagger on Harry Styles comparisons: He doesn’t have a voice like me

Harry Styles often finds himself at the center of comparisons to Mick Jagger given their onstage swagger and often androgynous fashion choices, but the Rolling Stones legend told The Sunday Times that Styles bears only a “superficial resemblance with my younger self”. Not that Jagger has anything against Styles, a pop star he loves and has “an easy relationship with.” Styles just released his third studio album, “Harry’s House,” on May 20.

“I love Harry – we have an easy relationship,” Jagger said. “I mean, I wore a lot more eye makeup than him. Come on, I was much more androgynous. And he doesn’t have a voice like mine or move on stage like me; he just bears a superficial resemblance to my younger self, which is fine – he can’t help it.

Styles’ album “Harry’s House” received excellent reviews from Variety Jem Aswad, who wrote it, was “largely a continuation and progression of its predecessor”. That would be 2019’s “Fine Line,” which won critical acclaim and won Styles a Grammy for the single “Watermelon Singer.” Styles’ “Fine Line” era found the actor courting comparisons from Jagger for his onstage dancing and colorful tour outfits.

“‘Harry’s House’ is a bit more intimate and less stadium-sized than its predecessor,” Asward wrote in his review. “In places, it’s heavier and more serious in places — which isn’t surprising after all that’s happened in the two-and-a-half years since ‘Fine Line’ dropped just before the pandemic… After an energetic start with the horn-dappled music in a sushi restaurant’ and ’80s-flavored ‘Late Night Talking’, the album turns into a loose, unhurried groove, blending moods and tempos but never becoming never too relaxed: Just when you lean back, a song like the joyful and effortless lead single, ‘As It Was’ (which has already topped the charts in several countries) bursts like the sun after a summer shower.

The Rolling Stones, meanwhile, are embarking on the Sixty Tour this summer. The tour begins on June 9 at Liverpool’s Anfield stadium. Head to the Sunday Times website to read the band’s latest profile.
