In an interview with Rolling Stone, revealing the inspiration behind his song, “Sign of the Times", Harry Styles said

Most of the stuff that hurts me about what’s going on at the moment is not politics, it’s fundamentals. Equal rights. For everyone, all races, sexes, everything… “Sign of the Times” came from “This isn’t the first time we’ve been in a hard time, and it’s not going to be the last time.” The song is written from a point of view as if a mother was giving birth to a child and there’s a complication. The mother is told, “The child is fine, but you’re not going to make it.” The mother has five minutes to tell the child, “Go forth and conquer.”
