Harry Styles has gone solo – here’s what we know

Our favourite member of One Direction (sorry Niall) has finally gone and launched his solo career 🎉🎉🎉

Harry hopped onto Radio 1 this morning for a (pre-recorded) interview with Nick Grimshaw (who is currently in Miami with his mum) to launch his debut solo single Sign of the Times.

So what do we know about Mr Style’s first foray into music minus Liam, Niall and Louis?

It’s a big ol’ mishmash of musical influences

There’s a little bit of Bowie, a little bit of The Beatles and even (in our humble opinion) a hint at Stereophonics on this guitar-driven ballad.

The video’s going to be a belter

Harry was spotted hanging from a helicopter recently (as you do), filming the video for the track. So we think it might be a bit special.

It’s a nod to Prince

It’s 30 years since Prince released Sign o’ the Times. See the connection?

He co-wrote it with a bit of a legend

Harry co-wrote the song with Jeff Bhasker, a super producer who has worked with Kanye West, Mark Ronson and Jay Z in the past. Check you out, Harry.

He’s on the promo trail soon

As well as his mammoth two-hour Radio 1 interview today, which you can listen to on the iPlay, you’ll be able to catch Harry performing the track on Saturday Night Live in the States on 15 April, and the Graham Norton Show here in the UK on the 21st. Set your Sky Plus.

It’s hit the top of the charts

Yep, it’s at number one on iTunes already.

His fans love it

They’ve been going bananas on Twitter.
