On “Sign of the Times,” the singer’s debut solo single, which premiered early Friday morning (April 7) on BBC’s Radio One, Styles postures himself as a devoted disciple of John Lennon and David Bowie on a slow-burning, swirling, sweeping ’70s rock ballad.
“It’s the song I’m most proud of writing, I think,” Styles told the radio station before premiering the song, adding, “I wrote most of the album in Jamaica, I was in Jamaica for two months. I just wanted to not be distracted… I really liked being away from everything.”
Listen up top, and catch Styles on Saturday Night Live on April 15.
