Check Out Full Credits for Harry Styles’ ‘Sign of the Times’ Single

April 14, 2017

Harry Styles pulled in a gang of heavy hitters when he was assembling the team to record the Bowie-esque “Sign of the Times,” the first single from his upcoming self-titled solo debut, due out on May 12. According to the song credits provided by Styles’ label, the track was co-written by the song’s producer, Jeff Bhasker, as well as his frequent collaborators and track co-producers Alex Salibian and Tyler Johnson.

There were a few other hands in the songwriting mix as well, including Bhasker compatriots Mitch Rowland and Ryan Nasci and, first in line, Styles himself. The former One Direction member clearly wanted to get away from the comforts of home as the track was laid down at Village Studios in Los Angeles (Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift) and Geejam Studio in Jamaica (Gorillaz, Drake, Katy Perry).

The song was mixed by the legendary Mark “Spike” Stent, who has logged time working on Grammy-winning albums by Beyoncé, Frank Ocean and Muse, as well as pitching in for works by Ed Sheeran, Selena Gomez, Grimes, Coldplay, U2, Oasis, Bjork and Madonna.

Rowland played guitar and drums, while Nasci laid down bass and Bhasker is credited with the piano, keyboard and lap steel parts. There is also a pretty extensive list of choir vocalists on the tune, check it out:

Gospel Choirmaster: Edie Lehmann Boddicker
Sopranos: Diane Reynolds, Allie Feder, Keri Larson, Monique Donnelly, Charlean Carmon, Carmen Carter, and Julia Waters
Altos: Baraka Williams, Clydene Jackson, Eyvonne Williams, Aretha Scruggs, Edie Lehmann Boddicker, Kala Balch, and Laurhan Beato
Tenors: Jamie McCrary, Fletcher Sheridan, Johnny Britt, Taylor Graves, David Loucks, Oren Waters, and Carmen Twillie
Bari-Basses: Jim Gilstrap, Alvin Chea, Reid Bruton, and Will Wheaton


Lady Gaga, Metallica to Duet at Grammys
Metal legends promised “very special and unique” performance

Lady Gaga will join Metallica onstage at the Grammys this Sunday. On Monday, a Gaga fan site tweeted a snippet of a Grammy promo clip declaring, “Lady Gaga duets with Metallica.” Rolling Stone has confirmed the collaboration.

This is the latest move in an impressive week from Gaga. Following her well-received Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday, she announced that she will tour arenas and stadiums all over the world behind her album Joanne, which came out last October. Billboard predicts that Joanne will jump back into the Top 5 on the Billboard 200 next week as listeners scoop up copies following her Super Bowl performance.

Lady Gaga is a regular performer at the Grammys; she appeared at the ceremony last year to pay tribute to David Bowie. Metallica hasn’t been on the show since 2014, when they performed the song “One” with the classical pianist Lang Lang.

Metallica’s “Hardwired” is nominated for Best Rock Song this year. The band is competing with David Bowie, Radiohead, Twenty One Pilots and Highly Suspect. Gaga is not up for any awards as Joanne was released after the 2016 deadline.

Metallica and Gaga is one of several star pairings at the upcoming Grammys ceremony. Alicia Keys will also perform with country singer Maren Morris, while the Weeknd will reunite with Starboy collaborators Daft Punk.


When Art and Music Collide: 10 of the best album covers designed by famous artists

I recently met one of my favourite contemporary artists, the American painter Walton Ford, who was in London for the opening of the new Rolling Stones exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery. Despite being a huge fan of Ford’s work, I had no idea that he’d designed the cover of the band’s greatest hits album GRRR!. Putting together a post dedicated to album art has always been on my ArtMastered to-do list, and this discovery felt like the final push I needed. So here is a selection of ten iconic pieces of music artwork, dating from 1967 to 2013, that have been designed by major visual artists. Read on to find out more about these inspiring collaborative projects, and please do message me details of your own personal favourites.

David Robert Jones aka David Bowie (8 January 1947 — 10 January 2016)

I always had a repulsive need to be something more than human.

When I was younger, I was fascinated by David Bowie, for example. He had created an entire myth around himself. It was as important as his music. — Lars von Trier

I do not use the word ‘genius’ lightly, but if David Bowie is not a genius, then there is no such thing. — Mick Rock

I look at Bowie as an icon in art. It’s not just about the music. It’s about the performance, the attitude, the look. And that is where I live as an artist. — Lady Gaga

If Bowie can make a record in complete anonymity without anybody knowing about it and without it being leaked and without it coming out and surprise everybody the way that he did - and to come back with such a wistful track like ‘Where Are We Now?’ - then I think there’s hope for us, there really, really is. And hats off to him. Touché. Well done David. — Brian Molko

As was the case with Miles Davis in jazz, Bowie has come not just to represent his innovations but to symbolize modern rock as an idiom in which literacy, art, fashion, style, sexual exploration and social commentary can be rolled into one. — Rolling Stone Magazine
