Could Harry Styles be moving towards a solo career?!
…we're SO not sure.
The One Direction mega-star has been soaking up the sights in NYC solo, hanging around with a gorg blonde model, and working alongside UK pop legend, Gary Barlow!
The X Factor UK judge and Take That frontman has been providing some mentoring to lil' Har.
The two met up at Soho House for a drink last weekend to discuss the singer’s development as a songwriter, and Gary allegedly gave Mr.1D a pep-talk about tackling the next steps in his
solo career! A source explains:
“Gary has been over in New York working on music for a Broadway musical version of Finding Neverland. He heard Harry was in town and arranged to meet up. They had a great afternoon talking about Gary’s life in Take That as a young bloke and then more recently. Harry is an attentive guy and really listens. He likes keeping older company and soaks up as much advice as he can get.
Gary talked him through his songwriting techniques and offered to write with him whenever they get the chance.”
Since 1D signed a 5 year contract, we guess Har-Har isn't going solo just yet, BUT he could be writing music for the group's new record that comes out in December!!!
The boys of One Direction signed individual publishing deals to earn extra dollars per hit they pop out!
Maybe Harry's just trying to get a one up on the guys!
Either way, the 1D hunk's meet-up with Gary means new music…
And that's fan tested, Directioner approved!
