Sign of the Times

Harry Styles has teased new music. And even better yet, the pop star has revealed that most of his new music was written while on vacation in Jamaica.

Styles rose to fame with the likes of Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Niall Horan by his side. But the remaining members of the now foursome One Direction, remain on an indefinite hiatus and continue to work on solo music and other projects.

Aside from his role in the upcoming film Dunkirk, Styles has been laying low since the band's hiatus began last January. Recently he announced the imminent release of his debut single Sign of the Times (available for streaming and download on April 7).

Sky News reports that Harry came to Jamaica (in March of this year) with the intention to immerse himself in the songwriting process with no distractions.

"I just wanted to not be somewhere that I'd get distracted...I liked being away from everything and doing it like that," he said of his time spent here songwriting.

Ahead of the full release of his Radio 1 Breakfast interview it is believed that Styles wrote about 30 songs while on the island and that the album is his current 'favourite album to listen to'.
