One Direction’s Harry Styles is officially a rock star. He has already been recognized by some of the best in the music business for his new 2017 solo album, which will soon be released.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Harry Styles of One Direction is a real rock star now. Styles has been giving clues for nearly a year now that he has become a classic rock musician.
The One Direction crooner’s new music has been compared, by professionals at Hits Daily Double — the publication of the music industry itself — to both Queen and David Bowie.
“[Harry Styles] has crafted a set that recalls the regal high-water mark of ’70s British rock, Bowie, and Queen in particular. The lead single, which could come out as soon as late April or early May, sounds like it would be a smash in any decade.”
Harry Styles has the respect of top music industry publications, as well as rock and roll royalty like Sir Elton John, Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Star and Mick Jagger who have consistently been there for him throughout the new solo album’s creative process.
According to the Inquisitr, Harry Styles of One Direction also has the respect of current rockers like the Red Hot Chilli Peppers who offered him a song for his new 2017 solo album. It is unknown if Styles included the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ song on his new album, though. A lot of stuff didn’t make the cut, according to Ed Sheeran.
Harry Styles’ long-time collaborator Ed Sheeran is quoted in the Mirror explaining that although he wrote a song with One Direction teen idol, for this new 2017 solo album, it will not be included.
“He came round like two years ago and we jammed out a song. I think he’s gone in a totally different direction now. It’s really good. Anything he puts out is going to be massive, let’s be honest. But I think it’s very good musically as well.”
