Harry Styles and John Legend wrote a song for Alex and Sierra

One Direction’s Harry Styles has branched out from his role as the pop group’s “curly-haired one” to co-write a song with John Legend.

Styles is reported to have penned the “beautiful and lovely” track with Legend for X Factor USA duo Alex and Sierra’s debut album.

“Harry is actually an amazing writer, he’s pitched us a few other good ones and they’re really good,” The Mirror reports Sierra as saying.

Lyrics to the song, the title of which is unknown, are thought to read: “I saw your face/ I heard your name/ Felt the blood rushing through my veins/ If you remember/ How could I forget?”

Styles is thought to have written 18 more as-yet-unheard songs, with music mogul Simon Cowell praising Alex and Sierra's debut album on Twitter.

The singer is also believed to have joined forces with Dan Layus of US indie band Augustana fame to work on songs including “I Just Wanna Be Your Man”, “Kiss It Better” and “One Desire”.

Fans of the boyband will be panicking that Styles' solo move could mean an imminent departure for the 20-year-old, as this is the first time that a member of One Direction has worked on an external musical project.

But despite taking a three month hiatus, One Direction insist they have "no intention" of splitting up.

i can't believe i follow chrissy teigen and she didn't live tweet that shit. what's the point.

Well, I think he is. But, when I heard he was 18, I was like, oh what a bb...
sdpt 24th-Feb-2014 05:59 pm (UTC)

What!? I watched the clip of them showing a snippet of the song Harry co-wrote for them and he looked in his 20's to me. Never would have guessed.
pplemmy 24th-Feb-2014 05:52 pm (UTC)
alex and sierra are like a watered down version of johnnyswim.
khaldrogo 24th-Feb-2014 05:53 pm (UTC)
Harry's pulling a Beyonce/Justin. Wake up, America.
phallus 24th-Feb-2014 05:54 pm (UTC)
What you mean?
_twenty 24th-Feb-2014 05:56 pm (UTC)
subtly (or not so subtly) laying the groundwork for a solo career.
arielazul_22 24th-Feb-2014 05:56 pm (UTC)
I think the op means he's trying to go solo
lipstiq 24th-Feb-2014 11:36 pm (UTC)
ew it should be zayn tho
arielazul_22 24th-Feb-2014 05:54 pm (UTC)
wait, harry styles writes? like for real or in a beyonce kind of way? he seems too, idk...dumb to be a writer.
2morrowww 24th-Feb-2014 05:56 pm (UTC)
he mainly wrote happily and something great lol
arielazul_22 24th-Feb-2014 06:01 pm (UTC)
something great? lool of course he did...did he write diana too aka the best song on the album =)
sillyforwords 24th-Feb-2014 10:41 pm (UTC)
Happily was mainly written by Savan though.
markedglory 24th-Feb-2014 06:00 pm (UTC)
He isn't as stupid as Lime, Lucas or Kneel imo.
bloolikejazz 25th-Feb-2014 04:48 am (UTC)
dumb? lol you tried
markedglory 24th-Feb-2014 05:57 pm (UTC)
Yes @ Harold.
phallus 24th-Feb-2014 05:57 pm (UTC)
So is Harry Styles like gunning for a solo career here in the States? That's what seems like.
2morrowww 24th-Feb-2014 05:58 pm (UTC)
i don't think so they'll probably all stick with their contract
maybe after
pastelward 24th-Feb-2014 05:57 pm (UTC)
sigh. zayn is the JC. better voice and looks than the lead (even though jc didn't age well) but he won't have the solo success harry probably will.

i just want him to make some ~indie~ prog r&b in the miguel/weeknd/drake lane
a_wa 24th-Feb-2014 06:00 pm (UTC)
We can dream. :(
markedglory 24th-Feb-2014 06:02 pm (UTC)
You do not want Zen to make music like the Weeknd. His stuff won't age well.
rainstormraider 24th-Feb-2014 06:45 pm (UTC)
But the Weeknd is FLAWLESS....I mean outside of his lame personality, fights with other peeps and being Drake's sidekick...

Zayn should go that direction for sure...case in point: his utter boredom and lack of enthusiasm for all things Midnight Memories, that music video was telling!
thin2010 24th-Feb-2014 06:00 pm (UTC)
An Augustana mention? Yayyy!
punkylana 24th-Feb-2014 06:05 pm (UTC)
okay but who are these people? ah nevermind, i saw the x factor tag
2morrowww 24th-Feb-2014 06:05 pm (UTC)
simon is trying to make them happen
lushlust 24th-Feb-2014 06:08 pm (UTC)
I know for a fact Harry has been in LA working on new material with Johnny McDaid of Snow Patrol. Haven't been able to find out whether it's for a solo effort, or they're writing tracks for others to use. This sheds light on some of that.
kary1591 24th-Feb-2014 06:15 pm (UTC)
Nice. Thanks for the deets. I know he wrote with Gary Lightbody from Snow Patrol for their last album. Might be something similar. Or they may be like the ones he wrote with the guy from Augustana and this John Legend one.
queen_norleans 24th-Feb-2014 06:10 pm (UTC)
I'll try not to hold it against you, Harry.

emmapcz 24th-Feb-2014 06:16 pm (UTC)
