Next week, de facto One Direction frontman Harry Styles will release his self-titled debut solo album. Judging by the Bowie-inflected “Sign Of The Times” and the Ryan Adams-y “Ever Since New York,” it seems Styles is angling to be received as a Serious Rock Artist now. Still, our third preview of the album, the McCartney-esque acoustic ballad “Sweet Creature,” sounds pretty One Direction-appropriate to me, not that there’s anything wrong with that. Listen below.
Harry Styles is out 5/12 on Columbia.
