It's finally the moment One Direction fans have all been waiting for: Harry Styles' first solo single has arrived.

Since One Direction went on hiatus last summer, Harry Styles has been a busy little bee, after landing a role in Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk and going to Jamaica to record his debut solo album.

Styles officially dropped 'Sign of the Times' on Friday , 7 April 2017 and it is amazing. Styles had teased the song last week through Instagram:

SIGN.OF.THE.TIMES // 7.APRIL.17 //

Styles also talked to BBC about his forthcoming album, "It’s a bit weird, I feel like I’ve been hibernating for so long now and you hear it in the safety of the studio and now it’s time to give birth … it’s the song (debut single) I’m most proud of writing."

Although Styles never gave any hint about how his solo material would sound, he delivered a true space-age rock ballad in 'Sign of the Times,' something that might fit in more with David Bowie's catalog or perhaps even an epic '90s ballad like Pink Floyd's 'Wish You Were Here' than it does with today's top 40.

Though it doesn't sound like your typical One Direction song, we are all in for Harry Styles' new avatar. Listen to the audio here:
