Style: Classic Rock
Sign of the Times has a very long ballad and an endless intro of 16 seconds. This is not good for the commercial radio but the song received a lot of positive criticism. The song is very different from the commercial boys-band songs. For this you need guts as a beginning solo artist. Also the artwork of the cover is totally different from that of the former boys-band he was in. You almost can hardly recognize Harry on the cover.
Rock and piano
Sign of the Times is pure classic rock build up around a piano in the style of David Bowie. When the song burst open you recognize Lana del Rey.
For the video-clip of Sign of the Times their was a big budget. Harry flew in the air with a helicopter and played a while for James Bond.
