At midnight, Harry Styles released “Sign of the Times,” his highly anticipated debut solo single.

Said Styles, “In the least weird way possible, it’s my favorite album to listen to at the moment.”

“Sign of the Times” was produced by Jeff Bhasker and co-written by Styles, with additional production by Alex Salibian and Tyler Johnson.

In total, Styles wrote about 70 songs for the album.

“We did 50 songs and ideas in Jamaica-and that’s including, like, little ideas. Well, full songs-I say there are 30 songs, probably. One of the songs on the album, I wrote a few years ago,” he revealed.

Styles has tested a few songs for Ed Sheeran, who’d written “18,” “Little Things,” “Moments” and “Over Again” for One Direction.

“I played him a few songs after the album was finished,” Styles said.
