Harry Styles admits he didn’t play ‘Sign of the Times’ for any of his One Direction bandmates

Harry Styles finally debuted his highly anticipated first solo single, “Sign Of The Times” today (April 7), which was apparently the first time any of his One Direction band members got to hear the song too.

During an on-air radio interview with SiriusXM the morning of the song’s release, the 1D singer spoke candidly about the passionate track, also confessing that no one in the band had actually heard the single until today.

“I haven’t played it for many people, I’ve kept it very close to my chest,” explains Styles, who is the latest 1D member to drop a solo single. “It’s amazing to watch your friends put music out in the world and everyone so far has done amazing,” he added.

The singer also touched on Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne becoming young dads since One Direction began their hiatus. “I’ve spoken to both of them and they’re super happy,” he said. “It’s pretty great to watch.”
