Harry Styles's debut solo album is "close" to being finished

Singer Harry Styles, of One Direction fame, is currently putting the finishing touches to his debut solo record. 

In a new interview with Billboard for its Power 100 series, Columbia Records CEO Rob Stringer explained that the album is in the final stages:

"We're close and we're very excited. We have a record we're incredibly excited about and it’s not far away from being ready. We obviously want everything to be beautifully done, because we think he's here to stay. Harry has stepped up with the vision of someone who's authentic."

Stringer went onto talk about One Direction's successful career and the interest the members have generated since the band went on hiatus, adding: "They didn't box themselves into a corner singing and dancing. It didn't have all the rules of the boy bands of the past where they're too boy-next-door, too sickly sweet."

"They weren't caricatures. And today, they're making smart choices. It doesn't surprise me that there's is a different path and they're doing pretty well. With One Direction, they became so big everywhere and from day one that their spread is much wider than other previous boy bands."
