HARRY Styles is about to dominate the airwaves once again after secretly recording his third album.
I can reveal that the former One Direction star and now international icon wrote and recorded a series of songs earlier this year.
Due to the pandemic, the record’s release has been postponed, but now it is hoped that fans won’t have to wait long to hear the new music.
A source said: ‘Harry started working on the album in early 2020 and had a few writing sessions under his belt before the pandemic really took hold.
“As a result, the plans were put on ice, but most of the records ended up being set in the UK.
“At the moment the exact details are top secret, but the track list should be decided soon.
“Harry is really excited about the album.”
The singer is in a busy 12 month period with the release of two films – My Policeman and Don’t Worry Darling – as well as new music and his world tour.
Harry’s latest album, Fine Line, topped the US Billboard 200 when it was released in December 2019 while narrowly missing UK No.1, peaking at No.2.
The album’s single Watermelon Sugar gave Harry his first Grammy Award for Best Pop Solo Performance, helping him become the star of 1D.
He is currently traveling to America on his 39 date Love On Tour trek, and his actress girlfriend Olivia Wilde has been seen in a number of shows, dancing off the side of the stage and proudly watching.
The couple were first linked after they were seen holding hands at a wedding in January, months after their split from longtime partner, US actor and comedian Jason Sudeikis.
As Harry is one of the most exciting artists on the planet right now, I can’t wait to hear his new music.
Liam: I’m way too confident
LIAM Payne says he’ll never hold back when he talks about his personal life.
The former One Direction star has fallen into the hot water after speaking too openly about his split with fiancée Maya Henry earlier this year.
He told a podcast in June that he was “not very good” at relationships and ended up hurting people.
The comments raised a few eyebrows behind the scenes – but Liam says he’s not planning on stopping talking honestly.
The Sunshine singer told me, “I’m way too confident. I prefer to trust first and think about it later, in a way.
“Sometimes that’s a problem for me.”
Liam, who has since reunited with Maya, said of her appearance on The Diary Of A CEO podcast: “I’ve had a lot of trouble with this stuff, but I can’t help myself. I like to chat with people.
For me, I think it’s great to see a celebrity who’s willing to let their guard down and speak openly – not in sound clips written by PR people.

Sad Chez leaves his concert
HEARTBROKEN Cheryl has suddenly pulled out of her scheduled performance at Birmingham Pride following the death of former Girls Aloud partner Sarah Harding.
She was scheduled to perform tonight, but told fans yesterday morning that she couldn’t cope with the show.
In a moving statement, Cheryl said, “Saying goodbye to someone you’ve spent so much of your life with is like nothing else.
“My heart is heavy. Grief is such a hard experience and a roller coaster of emotions. “
She added: “I’m so sorry, but I’m really not emotionally, mentally or physically capable of playing for you at Birmingham Pride.
“I now feel like I just need the time to sit down with my feelings and deal with the grief. Nothing prepares you for this song.
Sarah died of breast cancer earlier this month at the age of 39.
Her death came just hours after Cheryl returned to the stage to headline London’s Mighty Hoopla festival – knocking out their bandmate Nicola Roberts for a surprise slot.

The band, who are currently on tour, told me, “We swapped shots of alcohol for shots of ginger.
“We have the worst runner in history – it’s just a selection of teas and coffees and a few nuts. But the catering is amazing. This is where the budget went. The food is better than the show.
At least their shows are still awesome, even though it looks like the boys are all celebrating.
