Harry Styles Signs Record Deal, Shows Off New Haircut (PHOTOS)
The 22-year-old has signed with Columbia Records, who coincidentally is also the force behind the British boyband.
Former bandmate Zayn Malik released his first solo album in January.
According to Billboard, Harry has no current plans to put out an album anytime soon, but he does have four songs registered with the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP).
He is, however, filming the World War II movie Dunkirk which is slated for a July 2017 release.
For the role, the British popstar was forced to cut his hair but took the opportunity to donate his locks to a charity, The Little Princess Trust, which makes wigs for kids with cancer.
While some cannot picture the singer as an actor, Dunkirk‘s casting director John Papsidera set aside any doubts.
“Harry was absolutely right for the role. As an actor he is unknown, but his readings made him an obvious choice,” he said to the Sunday Mirror. “We thought he was fresh and interesting and he won the role.”
Congrats on your new accomplishments, Harry! We can’t wait to see what you do next.
