By now you should have heard or at least heard about Harry Styles’ new single, Sign of the Times. If not, I encourage you to give it a listen.
This was one of the most anticipated songs of the year and he did not disappoint. As a matter of fact, he exceeded expectations, pleasantly surprising many naysayers who never realized just how talented Harry truly is.
As a fan of One Direction I already knew that he’s a talented and intelligent artist who really knows music, but even I was blown away when I first heard his single. This was the Harry Styles we had been waiting to see.
Sign of the Times is a 5 minute and 41 second rock ballad that is unlike anything you hear on mainstream radio today. The music, lyrics & Harry’s powerful vocals are a truly creative package.
It’s been difficult to find just the right words to really express what I feel when I listen to the song. If I had to sum up in one word it would be pride. I am immensely proud of what Harry has done.
When Sign of the Times was released on Friday, April 7 it became the fastest rising single to hit #1 on the iTunes charts the day it debuted, beating a record previously held by Adele. Harry had officially become a bonafide solo artist. To add to that amazing news, SOTT has officially hit #1 in the U.K.!
His self-titled album, Harry Styles, is now available for preorder in digital, CD and vinyl formats via iTunes, Amazon and his official website at http://hstyles.co.uk/. The album will be released on May 12!
Harry’s televised debut performance as a solo artist took place on the April 15th episode of Saturday Night Live. He performed the songs Sign of the Times and Ever Since New York from his upcoming album.
Harry also performed in two sketches! In the first one he gave a hilarious impersonation of Mick Jagger on Celebrity Family Feud: Time Travel. *Note: Harry was the distraction while Jimmy Fallon ran back and forth on the set. You’ll see what I mean!
He also appeared in a Civil War solider sketch. Almost didn’t recognize him!
I’m looking forward to hearing the new album and possibly seeing Harry on tour (🤞🏾🤞🏾). This incredibly talented young man is just getting started and I can’t wait to see him continue to grow and achieve great things!
