Listen to Harry Styles' First Solo Single 'Sign of the Times'

Some of us probably never thought this day would arrive, but after weeks of teasing, Harry Styles has released his first solo single to the masses. The former One Direction member is officially on his way to a solo career. “Sign of the Times” is an epic homecoming ballad that we’ll be replaying all weekend long.

Creating and then awaiting the release of his single was a labor of love for Harry. While premiering the single on the BBC Radio 1’s breakfast show, Styles said, “I feel like I’ve been hibernating…it’s time to like, give birth.” *Swoon*

We’re kind of feeling a bit spoiled that we get to listen to Harry, Zayn, Louis and Niall go solo after One Direction's split. Liam, now we’re just waiting on you. Although he is a new father, we would love to hear a serenade dedicated to his baby boy. If we’re really being picky, Liam and his partner Cheryl releasing a song would be a dream come true. Can we for real make this happen?

At least time is in our corner. We’ll be here patiently waiting—don’t mind us.
