Harry Styles may be missing in action in the past weeks but he has a good reason for staying out of the spotlight. Reports mentioned that the One Directioner has been working on his new solo album. In his new album, fans will be hearing a different type of music from him.
“Harry has been very busy putting the finishing touches to his solo career, recording new material in London and just trying out new things. It’s a new chapter in his life, and he wants to make sure that everything is right as he makes his next step,” a source told Hollywood Life.
The source revealed that Styles is looking up to Robbie Williams, who “achieved success outside of ‘Take That.'”
“He’s working with the best songwriters and producers, aiming for a more rockier sound that’ll be a lot different than what fans expect,” the source further added.
So, no need to freak out if he has been missing the spotlight. In February, One Direction fans had expected a reunion from the popular boy band group. But surprisingly, only Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson showed up at the Brit Awards 2016. Harry Styles and Niall Horan’s absence led to cause panic and disappointment among fans.
“Harry was happy to be nominated, but just didn’t have time to attend the Brit Awards,” the source admitted to Hollywood Life.
Rumours on Styles’ solo career sparked after the band took a hiatus. After their emotional performance on “X Factor” UK, reports revealed that Styles had already co-written four songs on his own. American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP) documents showed that Harry has worked with songwriter/producer Gary Go and Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid.
When Jay Z learned of Styles’ plans of going solo, he expressed his interest to make him as the “World’s Biggest Star.”
“He does need to make the transition from being part of a group to becoming an individual artist. I can get him working with the bigger artists, the biggest producers – and have him as the biggest artist in the world within a year,” Jay Z told Daily Star.
One Direction fans still have to wait for further details on Style’s new album. As mentioned on Hollywood Life, the release date has not yet been confirmed.
