Gear up, Harry Styles fans, there might be some new music from the “Watermelon Sugar” crooner in the works!
While the former One Direction member is taking the stage every night amid his 2021 Love on Tour, U.K.’s The Sun reported in September 2021 that Harry is apparently gearing up for his third album release.
“Harry started working on the album in early 2020 and had a few writing sessions under his belt before the pandemic really took hold,” a source told the publication. “Right now, exact details are top secret but the track listing should be decided soon. Harry is really excited about the album.”
Months prior, when announcing new dates for his tour in July 2021, Harry appeared to tease that something was coming soon.
“LOVE ON TOUR will be going out across the USA this September, and I could not be more excited for these shows,” he wrote in an Instagram caption. “As always, the well-being of my fans, band, and crew is my top priority. Safety guidelines will be available on the respective venue websites to ensure we can all be together as safely as possible. Please notice that some dates have changed, and new shows have been added.”
Harry continued, “To everyone in the U.K., and across the world, I can’t wait to see you again, but for obvious reasons it is just not possible at this time. I will be sharing more news soon about shows across the globe, and new music. I love you all so much. I’m very excited, and I can’t wait to see you. H.”
While some fans were, of course, upset that it may be a while until the “Sign of the Times” singer visited their city, others were more focused on Harry casually dropping that “new music” was in the works.
“HARRY STYLES HAS NEWS TO SHARE ABOUT NEW MUSIC?!!!! HS3 IS COMING?!!??” one fan wrote on Twitter. Another added, “No … but when Harry Styles said he will be sharing news about new music soon, how soon is soon??? Is it tomorrow??! A week from now??! A month?!!!? Harry, you can’t leave us hanging you gotta give us something.”
A third social media user remarked, “Harry Styles saving 2021 by acting in TWO films and releasing NEW music as he starts Love on Tour. Who is doing it like him??? NO ONE.”
Aside from the mysterious hint about new music, the former X Factor star does, in fact, have multiple movies in the works. Throughout 2020 it was announced that he would be starring in Don’t Worry Darling, which wrapped in February 2021, and My Policeman, which wrapped in May 2021. Other than that, Harry has been quiet about any upcoming projects, so this is the first fans have heard about new music. J-14 has reached out to Harry’s team for comment regarding the possible third album.
