Harry Styles is finally going in a new direction and flying solo!

The One Direction heartthrob has officially signed a solo recording contract with Columbia Records, Billboard reports. According to the site, the terms of the contract have not been released and there's no timeline for the solo record -- which means we have to keep waiting to hear more music from the wild-haired crooner!

One Direction is also signed to Columbia -- so it's not surprise that the Brit stayed with his label. While Harry may be gearing up for an LP of his very own, there's still no word when the boys of 1D will be back from their hiatus! Oh look -- more waiting!

The sexy singer has used his break from the boy band to film Christopher Nolan's World War II drama, Dunkirk.

One Direction was formed from The X Factor U.K. in 2010, and since then has had four No. 1 albums and one No. 2 album, which were all released via Sony Music's Columbia label in partnership with Simon Cowell's Syco.

We have a sneaking feeling that Harry's solo project will be as successful as his band's chart-topping records! Did we mention we can't wait?! 'Cause we can't!
