He's an integral part of one of the most successful boy bands of all time, One Direction, but Harry Styles may be looking to go solo.

According to the UK's Mirror, the 19-year-old pop star has been recording new material without his 1D bandmates.

"He loves messing around with some of the new songs he's been working on," a source told the paper. "He's bounced some ideas off his friend Ed Sheeran and has ­already laid down some vocals."

While Harry may be looking to branch out on his own, he's currently in the middle of a international tour with One Direction and is committed to the group.

"Harry's priority is obviously still with 1D," the source added. "But when he decides the time to go solo has arrived, he's likely to have a project raring to go."
