Harry Styles has been a force in the entertainment industry for years now as a member of One Direction. The band hit overnight success and, without knowing it was happening, created an empire in the music world. They had a target audience ‘young girls who want to be the next Mrs. One Direction, which meant their talent and songwriting/vocal abilities were often overlooked by people who couldn’t get past the ‘boy band’ image.
Now, he is on the brink of his solo album debut – having already released a single and played another tune on SNL. He’s got a video to debut soon as well – all in all – it’s a good time to be a fan of Harry. May 12th is the official release date for his self-titled album and if that wasn’t good enough news; Harry will be visiting his pal James Corden starting May 15th and we get to be part of the experience too.
That’s right – Harry will be joining James Corden for not just one episode as a musical guest, but for a week’s worth of episodes as someone who James is convinced just WON’T be singing. James says he does that, he handles the singing. After hearing the pipes on James through Carpool Karaoke, we aren’t mad about his confidence, but come on – it’s Harry Styles – he’ll be doing some singing too.
James is a longtime friend of Harry, so we know the episodes will be absolutely brilliant, and happening just days after his solo album debut gives the pair a lot to talk about. Harry’s also got his film premiere role in Dunkirk happening this July – 2017 is shaping up to be rather busy for Harry and his very loyal fans.
If you’ve yet to hear his solo single, you can find ‘Sign of the Times’ on iTunes, Spotify, and YouTube as well as performances of his song ‘Ever Since New York’ on YouTube as well. You can also pre-order his album via this website – trust us, you won’t want to miss it.
