Global superstar Harry Styles releases his highly anticipated self-titled solo debut on Columbia Records. The ten track album is preceded by the sweeping rock ballad "Sign of the Times," which topped the charts in over 80 countries upon its release. Drawing comparisons to the '70s work of David Bowie, Styles says that, "It's the song I'm most proud of writing I think." The album was executive produced by Jeff Bhasker, with additional production from Alex Salibian, Tyler Johnson and Kid Harpoon. Gatefold 180 gram vinyl with download insert.
"The songs range from full-on rock ("Kiwi") to intricate psychedelic pop ("Meet Me in the Hallway") to the outright confessional ("Ever Since New York," a desperate meditation on loss and longing). The lyrics are full of details and references – secrets whispered between friends, doomed declarations of love, empty swimming pools – sure to set fans scrambling for the facts behind the mystery...The album is a distinct departure from the dance pop that permeates the airwaves." - Cameron Crowe, Rolling Stone
