Directioners (the affectionate name given for fans of the mega band One Direction) have been clamoring for more since the band took what looks to be a very extended hiatus in 2016. Since then former 1D member Zayn Malik has been busy releasing solo material while 1D members Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson have both released singles (as to Horan in Sept. 2016 he dropped This Town and in Dec. 2016 Tomlinson dropped Just Hold On). Now, it appears that much anticipated material will finally be released by Harry Styles, arguably the most popular member of the group.
In 2016 Styles had signed a solo record deal with Columbia and according to the video below, Styles’ first single will drop on April 7. Since the hiatus came about Styles has been busy acting on a role in Christoper Nolan’s upcoming World War II drama Dunkirk (out July 21) and writing songs for other artists, including Michael Buble. However, now it is time for Styles to shine again as a musician.
Arguably, Styles’ release could be the most anticipated event to occur since 1D’s hiatus.
