Listen: Harry Styles’ Leaked Track, ‘Don’t Let Me Go’

By: Alana Altmann / June 14, 2013

Is Harry Styles going in another “direction”?

A new song is making the rounds on the internet today, and it comes from none other than the musical heatthrob and One Direction singer.

The leaked track is called “Don’t Let Me Go” and it’s a soft piano-heavy ballad, somewhat of a departure from the poppy up-tempo stylings of boy-banders 1D. It’s also a collaboration with UK musician Sam McCarthy.

McCarthy tweeted his gratitude for the song’s positive responses, saying, “Wow! Thanks for all the nice tweets about the song. Harry did most of the words I did the music. X.”

Harry’s words include (full lyrics at Directlyrics): “I’ll keep my eyes wide open/ I’ll keep my arms wide open/ Don’t let me/ Don’t let me/ Don’t let me go ’cause I’m tired of feeling alone.”

A message to ex-fling Taylor Swift, perhaps?

Listen to the track, above. What do you think of Harry Styles solo jam?
