Harry Styles fans have said the star has adopted a new 'Australian’ accent in a new interview. 

The Worcestershire-born singer discussed his new album Harry's House in an interview with Apple Music's Zane Lowe – but fans couldn’t help but think he had a ‘changing accent’. Watch a clip here:

Taking to the comments, fans shared their thoughts about the star’s supposed new dialect in the interview, with one writing: “He sounds Australian.”

“When did he turn Australian?”, another echoed. 

One user questioned: “Is he northern? Irish? Australian?”

“He sounds Australian/American/Mancunian,” someone else pointed out.

Another person asked: “Is he Australian?”

“Bestie sounds Australian,” someone else said.

Elsewhere, others seemed worried about his northern accent supposedly changing.

“He’s losing his sweet Cheshire accent,” another lamented.

“He doesn’t sound British,” said another.

A different fan said: “Where is he even from anymore?”

“Harry’s doing a Liam with that accent,” a different fan noted, harking back to the Liam Payne Oscars interview in which fans couldn’t place his accent.

Tyla has contacted a linguistics expert for comment on Harry Styles' alleged new accent.

On the red carpet, a Good Morning Britain reporter asked the singer for his thoughts on the Will Smith and Chris Rock incident. Although Liam had lots to say about the Oscars situation, fans were too distracted by his accent.

Accent coach Luke Nicholson, speaking on behalf of youth travel operator Contiki, said at the time that Payne's new accent may be a result of his globetrotting lifestyle and having friends from different parts of the world.

He said: "Our accents reflect our identity. Given Liam's extensive travelling, it's not surprising that his speech sounds more international these days.

"It's also important to note that our accents change depending on who we are talking to (linguists call this 'accommodation'). Having friends from different parts of the globe may well influence the way he speaks."
