Is Harry Styles Leaving One Direction? He Just Revealed His Future Music Plans

Harry Styles just revealed whether or not he has plans to leave One Direction.

After Zayn Malik left One Direction in March, rumors started flying that Styles was leaving the band as well. But, are those rumors actually true? Styles talked to Ryan Seacrest this morning on his radio show, On Air with Ryan Seacrest, and he discussed his plans for the future.

When asked about a solo career, Styles explained that he’s focused on the band. “We have the album and the tour that we’re working on right now,” Styles told Seacrest. “I think when you have so many goals that you feel like you have yet to achieve, it’s hard to kind of see past those. It’s important to kind of focus on what’s going on and don’t kind of lose track. So we’re all working hard towards the same thing right now, and I don’t think we’re thinking much past that. I think we’re just having a lot of fun and we’re working hard and we’re having a good time.”

The band is about to start the North American stretch of their On the Road Again World Tour, and they’re currently working on their next album, their first as a foursome.

When asked how everyone was doing without Malik, Styles revealed that the “spirit is great.” He then talked about the upcoming album. “We’re working on the new album right now,” Styles explained. “It will be our fifth, which is crazy to think about, so we’re all very excited.”

Seacrest then asked Styles, “Is there any difference in your approach to the album or your approach to the tour, minus one guy?”

Styles revealed, “I don’t think too much, no. It’s definitely been fun for us writing, to see what’s been different. The creative process, it’s very similar to be honest. But it was cool how some of the things came out sounding, because obviously there was a lot of parts that kind of needs to get written with Zayn in mind and with all of us in mind. It’s great, the new stuff sounds good so far I think? I hope. So we hope that people like it.”

When will the new album be released? Styles said he wasn’t “100 percent” sure but he told Seacrest, “It will be towards the end of the year.”
