A Harry Styles April 7 teaser has definitely piqued interest over social media after the One Direction member was featured in a television ad in the United Kingdom.
In 2016, Styles and the other members of the popular British boy band behind chart-topping songs like “What Makes You Beautiful,” “Perfect,” “One Way Or Another,” “One Thing,” and many others went their separate ways after announcing an indefinite hiatus.
While other members of One Direction remained private months after the hiatus announcement, Styles continued with his career in the entertainment industry by signing a solo record deal with Columbia, being cast for a role in the World War II drama from Christopher Nolan titled Dunkirk, and composing songs for other singers, like Michael Bublé.
Now, Harry Styles appears to be moving on from being part of a group act and will share his talent in music with the world by going solo.
According to Entertainment Weekly, a “Harry Styles April 7” TV ad emerged in the U.K., teasing an announcement about something happening on the date stated.

While the ad did not exactly state that the announcement is about an album release, the outlet was inclined to believe so considering the apparent music theme of the clip.
Making quite a literal impression of the saying, the ad showcases Styles “opening a door” as a piano track plays on the background before the words “April 7th” appear onscreen.
In September, Styles had been sharing cryptic posts that show black squares over his official Instagram account before finally posting images of his self on Another Man magazine where he appears in three different covers.

Days before Harry Styles’ April 7 ad hit British TV, Styles had also shared the same cryptic blank posts that made many of his 19.7 million Instagram followers beg for him to finally make the announcement.
“You really just love us begging to you, don’t you. YOU LOVE LEAVING US IN SUSPENSE, DON’T YOU HARRY…….DON’T YOU,” one of his Instagram followers wrote.
Another noted the similarity of the situation to what happened in September, 2016.
“We know that Harry will post something after this because for Another Man he did the same.”
Entertainment Weekly noted that if the Harry Styles April 7 announcement is indeed about a solo single, it would be his first since One Direction took an indefinite leave from the music scene.
The video, which was aired during The Voice UK’s commercial break, was also uploaded onto YouTube on March 25 and was titled “Harry Styles Ad for Debut Single – April 7th,” thereby confirming what the Harry Styles April 7 announcement was all about.
Aside from Styles, other members of One Direction have also been recently active in the music scene, particularly Zayn Malik, who unveiled a new song titled “Still Got Time,” which EW believed the former band member made his talent “understated.”
According to the outlet, it was obvious how Zayn wanted to show that “he had a mind of his own” because he put as much distance as he can from his band-mates after the band’s hiatus announcement.
Meanwhile, Liam Payne happily announced the birth of his first child with Cheryl Cole over his Instagram account mere hours after the Harry Styles April 7 announcement teaser went live.
My close friends and family know there are very few times when I'm left speechless… wow! I'm incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it's a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far. I'm completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she's really made my dreams come true. We haven't named him yet but he's already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed. Happy Mother's Day everyone!

Cheryl Cole also shared the same image in her social media account, revealing details about their son’s birth including his weight and how she felt “overwhemingly happy” after seeing her child for the first time. She also admitted that they still haven’t thought of a name for their firstborn.
