Solo Harry Styles has officially arrived and with his first solo single "Sign of the Times" finally here, the world gets to hear what the One Direction singer has been working on during his time "hibernating" as he put it. The tune is nothing short of epic, a full-on rock ballad that you can already visualize thumping so loud in an arena packed with fans. But we're getting a bit ahead of ourselves! The song is just that big and while Directioners everywhere will most likely have it repeat, they're not the only ones hearing ti for the first time.
"No, I actually haven't. I haven’t played it for many people. I kept it very close to my chest. Just kind of been getting it all ready and stuff. We’ll see how it goes," he said.
This is rather surprising, since Niall had shared that he played his single "This Town" for the guys before he put it out into the universe, but perhaps Harry wanted them all to be surprised. And so far, it seems like Liam and Niall are both loving it. Niall was the first to publicly congratulate Harry, writing one simple tweet.
Niall has arguably always been the biggest 1D fan, and he's keeping that title by letting Harry know he loves the song. Liam then sent out his own message, taking a break from creating his own music and you know, living that new dad life.
@Harry_Styles proud of you H. Glad you're getting to do your own thing 🎶— Liam (@LiamPayne) April 7, 2017
Louis hasn't gotten around to sharing his thoughts about the song on social media quite yet, but we're just going to hope it's because he's too busy jamming out to the song to articulate his feelings right now. Same though.
Harry also went on to say that's nothing but proud of the solo success Niall, Louis and even former bandmate Zayn Malik have had, and it's something he hopes to have too.
"Yeah, I mean it’s amazing for your friends, to watch them put music out and it go so well. Everyone so far has done amazing, so if I get to kind of join them in that, that would be amazing," he said.
What a prince that Harry.
