Harry Styles Dropped A Beautiful Ballad For Long-Distance Lovers

Is your body ready?

Harry Styles is waiting for no one as he puts everything on the table for his big solo debut. The former One Direction member needs no introduction, but his latest single really sets the mood for a romantic rendezvous. "Sweet Creature" officially premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 Radio and is now available to stream via Apple Music, YouTube, and Spotify.

The tender tune places Styles' vocals front and center, as he gently croons over an acoustic guitar. It's the sort of song that you can count on when you're going the distance with your lover and miss them terribly. "Sweet creature/ Had another talk about where it's going wrong/ But we're still young/ We don't know where we're going/ But we know where we belong," he softly sings in the opening verse.

Styles' self-titled full-length album is slated for release on May 12 via Columbia Records. Niall Horan is releasing his next single "Slow Hands" on May 4, Zayn Malik is said to be working on his sophomore record, and Liam Payne is in the process of collaborating on a track with Migos. (No word on Louis Tomlinson's recent activities aside from raising his son.) 

Alas, all of them seem to be headed in the right direction. Stream Style's brand-new track in the audio video, below.
