Harry Styles is appropriately gearing up for pop takeover, having premiered last month his debut solo single, "Sign of the Times," which he later performed live on SNL. Since then, he's appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone (wearing an incredible pussy blouse), and shared a follow-up album single, "Sweet Creature." Today, the former One Direction member has dropped a stunning new video for "Sign Of The Times," which sees Styles defying gravity, as we've all admittedly dreamt he'd one day do.
Directed by french musician and director Yoann Lemoine, who's best known as Woodkid, the scenic visual shows Styles floating around the Scottish countryside, working through his existential lyrics about the world's tumultuous state. "Just stop your crying, it's a sign of the times," he sings, flying angelically above the ocean like a modern-day Peter Pan. "Welcome to the final show, hope you're wearing your best clothes," Styles continues, of course, dressed in some very nice duds.
Woodkid's directorial repertoire is already dense with iconic pop projects, including Lana Del Rey's "Blue Jeans," Drake's "Take Care" and Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream." His own album, The Golden Age, was released in 2013, and he more recently scored the soundtrack for 2016's Mexican thriller Desierto. Woodkid also notably collaborated with rap star Mykki Blanco on his debut studio album single, "High School Never Ends."
