With a new single that was just released on April 7 (and hopefully a debut of a new album soon?), Harry Styles has made quite a come back since One Direction announced their hiatus a little over two years ago. With his new single, 'Sign of the Times,' Styles has already shattered the charts, debuting at the #1 spot on Vodafone's Big Top 40 in the UK. Billboard even spoke about the piece, saying that Styles "took his time, and got it right."
'Sign of the times" is a song that is easy to relate to, and Harry wanted it to be that way. Harry's music is very different than the music that One Direction is famous for, and fans are going nuts for his individuality. Styles released a song that his a pure reflection of his personality and that really hits home for his audience. His hard work has paid off, and we can only look forward to new music from Styles in the future.
It's interesting to see Harry's reaction to the song being so successful because he's so coy about everything. He says that releasing music makes him have a "vulnerable feeling" but then goes on to say that it's exciting as well. Well, Harry, you've certainly impressed me (and the rest of the world, probably) with 'A Sign of the Times' and we're all anxiously awaiting for the rest of the album to be released.
Thank you, Mr. Styles, for caring so much about your music and wanting it to inspire individuals across the world. The whole point of music is to feel a sense of unity amongst yourself and others around you, and I feel as though Harry understands that motive and attempts to create music that does just that.
