"#Two Ghosts" was not the expected choice - just the only choice. As #Harry Styles continues to bask in the glow of his debut solo album, it was time to release another single from the record. While there were other options many fans suggested, "Two Ghosts" ultimately won out. The song will be released as a single to radio stations beginning on July 25, 2017, continuing the summer of Styles.

About "Two Ghosts"

"Two Ghosts" is the fourth track on the debut album from the former #One Direction singer. It was written by Styles, John Ryan (who has written Maroon 5's most recent hits), Mitch Rowland, Julian Bunetta, and Tyler Johnson.

It has been performed on "The Late Late Show With James Corden." The news about it being a single was first broken by Mediabase/AllAccess.

There has been some speculation that the song is about Taylor Swift. The first two lines of "Two Ghosts" practically describe her: "Same lips red, same eyes blue/Same white shirt, couple more tattoos." Styles hasn't confirmed it, and in interviews has basically defected whenever he is asked if his ex-girlfriend is the source material for the song. Swift has plenty of experience writing songs about ex-lovers, so it wouldn't be shocking if Styles had gone in the same direction for this track.

Summer of Styles

The newest single will continue a strong summer for Styles. He released his debut album on May 12, 2017, which features the single "Sign of the Times." The album received favorable reviews across the board and peaked at the top of the charts in several countries, including the United State, the United Kingdom, and Canada.

It also had the best first week of sales for a debuting British male solo artist since 1991; Styles will go on a world tour beginning in September in support of the album.

The "Two Ghosts" singer is stretching his acting legs too. He is making his acting debut in "Dunkirk," which is set to be released in theaters in two weeks. He's playing the role of Alex and reportedly didn't get the role based on his fame, but based on merit after auditioning against hundreds of other potential candidates. Styles is actually getting some praise for his performance in the movie, validating his selection for the role in the Christopher Nolan war drama/action flick. Whether he's good or bad, Styles will keep gracing our movie screens - and our radios - for the foreseeable future, until his tour whisks him away from the national spotlight.
