Is Harry Styles going solo, leaving One Direction to release his own album?
It’s not happening. Harry even said so on Twitter!
You can breathe a huge sigh of relief, Directioners, because the rumors that Harry was venturing out on his own solo career are so false.
The Mirror reported that “Harry Styles is recording his own songs and hopes to release a solo album,” saying he “has co-written several of the numbers” and “has worked on early versions of the songs during visits to the renowned Paramount recording studio in Hollywood.”
They even threw in Ed Sheeran’s name for good measure, reporting that a source told the tab, “He loves messing around with some of the new songs he’s been working on. He’s bounced some ideas off his friend Ed Sheeran and has already laid down some vocals.”
The Mirror added that Harry’s “priority” was to stay with One Direction, but, “when he decides the time to go solo has arrived, he’s likely to have a project raring to go.”
It’s not happening, guys.
A source for One Direction told the Mail Online that Harry is in the studio to work on the 1D album, saying, “Harry is not recording solo material. All of the band are working on tracks for their third album.”
The source added, “Harry is putting together some ideas for the record. The boys sometimes work up ideas separately as well as working together, as they did last year. Niall for example recently collaborated with Tom and Dougie from McFly on new tracks.”
Even Harry shot down the solo rumor when asked by a fan, tweeting: @MckaylaBush No not at all, I missed a recording session that’s why I was in the studio in LA catching up .x
