Ever since One Direction decided to take a break as a group, its members have
been working on solo projects and most of the members have seen major
success as solo artists too.
After Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson, it’s now Harry Styles’ turn to
release his solo music! The singer revealed the news to his fans in a
“mysterious” TV ad, which announced that his debut solo single would be
released on Friday, April 7.
The 30 second long ad first appeared on British television this Saturday and
featured Harry in a dark room with a cloud of smoke surrounding him. Near the
end of the clip, the former One Direction member opens some type of
door/curtain and a light comes out. Then his green eyes are shown in the
camera as the official release date of his debut single is revealed: April 7.
Fans of the 23 year old singer first thought that this was an announcement for
his debut solo album, but some sources close to Styles confirmed to Billboard
that it was about his first single.
A couple of months ago it was also announced that Harry Styled had signed a
recording contract with Columbia Records, the same label that One Direction was
signed to, so an announcement about his solo music was only a matter of time.
Meanwhile other former members of One Direction who have already released
their solo music are Zayn Malik (who was the first member to leave the group)
and Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson, who released their solo projects a few
months after it was announced that One Direction would be taking a break.
Liam Payne also has been teasing fans with some studio pictures, letting them
know that he is working on some solo stuff, but no date has been set yet. He
just became a father for the first time as his partner Cheryl Cole gave birth last
Wednesday, so that might delay his plans a bit.
