Harry Styles Teases April 7 Release Date
Harry Styles is coming! The One Direction star launches his solo project next month.

Harry Styles announced his solo debut on the weekend via a dramatic, yet annoyingly vague TV commercial. The One Direction heartthrob walks into a smoky room in the 30-second clip and opens a door. He then basks in white light before we get a close-up of his eyes and the date, April 7. That has readily been interpreted as the day new music drops. (Adele and Lorde have promoted upcoming releases using a similar method). There’s now additional evidence to suggest that the 23-year-old’s debut single is a little over a week away.

For starters, Harry updated all his social media profile pics this morning. It looks like he’s using a still from the TV commercial to usher in his new era. In addition to that, the Brit announced that he will perform on Saturday Night Live on April 15. At this point, every 1D member expect Liam Payne has launched a solo career. Zayn Malik has been the most successful by some margin, landing a number one hit in the US and UK, but there’s serious buzz about Harry. If anyone can give the “Pillowtalk” hitmaker a little competition, it’s going to be him.
