New Direction: Listen to Harry Styles Debut Solo Song

The boy band alumni dropped his debut song ‘Sign Of the Times’ and the internet (and myself) are going NUTS.

Sign of the Times hits the ears as a reverent study of classic rock balladry (that, dare we say, gives off some light David Bowie vibes), patiently growing from piano crooning to soaring vocals over bombastic riffs and a melancholy guitar solo line.

Styles took a risk here. He could have done a safe, radio-ready pop song — or worse, botched the execution of this effort with a hacky, stadium rock imitation of the legends he pays homage to on “A Sign of the Times.” But the singer-songwriter sounds confident here, coming out with perhaps the most sure-footed effort yet of the divergent Directioners.”

Could Styles be as successful as his former band member Zayn in his solo career? I guess we’ll just have to wait and find out.
