Now that Harry Styles has confirmed details of his debut solo single ‘Sign Of The Times’, we want to know all about it!!
The former One Direction star has been teasing his debut solo tracks for the past few weeks and now we know the single will be released on April 7th.
Interesting Fact: The single coincides with the 30th anniversary of Prince’s album of the same name.
The 23 year-old singer has been writing songs with Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid, who is also known for his collaborations with Ed Sheeran. McDaid said last year that the One Direction singer’s solo material will “blow the socks off the world”.
Harry’s has previously revealed his musical heroes are The Beatles, Elvis and Coldplay.
Styles has signed to Columbia Records for his solo material. Discussing Styles’ solo music last month, the label’s CEO Rob Stringer said: “We’re close and we’re very excited. We have a record we’re incredibly excited about and it’s not far away from being ready. We obviously want everything to be beautifully done, because we think he’s here to stay. Harry has stepped up with the vision of someone who’s authentic.”
Reports have also suggested that Styles’ upcoming solo album sounds like David Bowie and Queen. Styles’ album has been recorded with one producer, Jeff Bhasker, who has previously worked with artists including Kanye West, Bruno Mars and the Rolling Stones.
Harry’s album is building “giant buzz” within the industry, adding: “In marked contrast to One Direction’s production by committee, Styles has crafted a set that recalls the regal high-water mark of ’70s British rock, Bowie and Queen in particular.”
“The lead single, which could come out as soon as late April or early May, sounds like it would be a smash in any decade.”
MarkMeets has previously revealed Styles is also launching his acting career this year with a role in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk.
Styles is set to make his live debut on US TV’s Saturday Night Live on April 15.
