Harry Styles releases debut single Sign Of The Times: Audio, stream, lyrics

Stop your crying, baby...

Harry Styles has released his debut solo single, called Sign Of The Times.

The One Direction star debuted his first solo track on BBC Radio 1's Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw. 

As you can hear below, it's a rousing piano-led guitar rock ballad that clocks in at well over five minutes.

Speaking on Radio 1, Harry said: "It’s a bit weird, I feel like I’ve been hibernating in the studio for so long… it’s time to give birth."

Harry will also perform the song live for the first time on The Graham Norton Show, while he has also booked a major US TV performance on Saturday Night Live on April 15, where he will appear alongside host Jimmy Fallon.

Pictures from the song's accompanying music video have also appeared online. 

Harry has been one of the slower members of One Direction when it comes to turning out solo material. Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson have both released Top 10 singles, while former member Zayn released his chart-topping debut album last year.
