Harry Styles, the former member of One Direction, is now under the management of Jeffrey Azoff, and his debut Solo Album is ready to hit the charts. The 23-year-old singer has played it bold and brave in choosing old-school rock classics as his inspiration. Showcasing a more serious tone on his 10-track album, his solo work is a far cry from his boy band past.

What’s on the album?

His self-titled album, which is under his own label (Erskine Records), features the song “Sign of the Times” as its first single, which was released last month. It's a rock ballad that sounds like a crossover between Lana Del Rey and David Bowie.

This is the same song he sang on the “Graham Norton Show," while his Beatles-esque “Carolina” is about a girl who has a book for every situation, and “Kiwi” is a passionate rock song about a New Zealand model named Georgia Fowler.

His song “Woman” exposes his vulnerable side with a sexy soul vibe. “Sweet Creatures” is a guitar ballad that shows off the soulfulness in Harry’s voice. “Two Ghosts" has a John Mayer sound, and is about a relationship falling apart. “Only Angel” starts with a fragile intro that dives into old-school rock. Harry sang “Ever Since New York” live on "SNL," a subtle song that has a country-inspired twang. The last track is “From the Dining Table,” with its intensely striking chorus giving the whole album a remarkable ending.

Other projects

Harry Styles is not only exploring the wide range of his music career. He is also part of the upcoming World War II epic “Dunkirk.” He portrays the role of a young British soldier caught up in Dunkirk -- a French city situated between the Allies and Nazi's The movie started filming in May 2016 and is expected to hit the cinemas by the end of summer.

Harry had to sacrifice his famous locks for the role. He has also been tapped to play the role of Mick Jagger in a new biopic with the working title “Exile on Main Street: A Season in Hell with the Rolling Stones." The movie will focus on the band’s 1972 double album “Exile on Main Street,” which the band recorded in France.
