The wait is almost over for the first solo album from former One Direction member Harry Styles. Less than a week after debuting his first single “Sign of the Times” on April 7, Styles has now announced that his upcoming self-titled record will drop on May 12.
Styles uploaded an image of the album cover to his social media pages, with the image showing him naked from the waist up and wet sitting in a pink pool. Styles’ back is to the camera and the English singer is holding his head in his hands, with only a handful of his tattoos visible and two necklaces as his only pieces of clothing.
Styles’ famous face is more visible in the image on the back of the album, which shows the tracklisting for the 10-track album.
The upcoming album Harry Styles will be available in a number of versions to fit all levels of fandom, including two different vinyl versions, a digipak CD, a limited edition CD containing a 32-page hardcover book that includes images from the album’s recording sessions, as well as digital download and streaming services. All versions of Harry Styles will be made available for pre-order starting tomorrow, just one day before Styles performs solo for the first time on Saturday Night Live.
The upcoming performance will include the Jeff Bhasker-produced single “Sign of the Times,” as well as a second track from the new album. “Kiwi?” “Woman?” “From the Dining Table?” We are very intrigued by these song titles.
Still no word on when Styles’ music video for “Sign of the Times” will be released, but considering how quickly his album is going to be hitting shelves, expect some visuals any day now.
