Harry Styles is collaborating with Kodaline.

The One Direction hunk was impressed with the Irish band - made up of Steve Garrigan, Jason Boland, Vincent May and Mark Prendergrast - after he saw them play live and decided he wanted to work with them while on a break from touring with his band.

Mark told The Sun newspaper: "He came along to one of our gigs, then showed up at another in LA.

"We ended up going into the studio - I can't remember who suggested it but it worked out well."

The 'High Hopes' band were impressed with Harry's attitude and insist the heartthrob - who was catapulted to the spotlight alongside Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne following their success on UK's 'X Factor' - is "just normal" and doesn't act like an egotistical superstar.

Mark added: "He's a nice lad, just normal. There was no big entourage or airs or graces or any of that, he really just wanted to make some music."

The curly-haired hunk, 20, also teamed up with John Legend recently, to pen a track for US 'X Factor' duo Alex and Sierra and is said to have been interested in writing for 5 Seconds Of Summer and girl band Neon Jungle.
