"Sign of the Times" is the first taste of Harry Styles' solo career apart from One Direction. Just as Zayn Malik did with R&B, Styles has taken a dramatic stride away from any 1D sound.
The debut single seems to encompass a massive slew of influences -- especially classic British rock groups. The near-6 minute piece of music sees a pop-rock piano ballad tone with elements of keyboards, huge group vocals, ranging guitar lines, and dramatic drums. Styles then ends the song with him belting "We got to get away" over and over and absolutely draining all of his energy. If this song transitions well live we have something special on our hands.
A music video for the track will come later this month.
@Harry_Styles Love it H .
