Could Harry Styles' Rolling Stone cover mean a new album is about to drop?

Rolling Stone just unveiled their new cover and it stars Harry Styles shirtless. Naturally, everyone is shook.

It's no secret that Harry Styles is an international heartthrob. Ever since he first auditioned for the X Factor as a teen in 2010, fans immediately fell in love with his good looks and charm. Since then he's gone on to takeover the world as a member of One Direction and become a critically-acclaimed solo artist with his self-titled debut album.

Now Harry looks set to drop new music (fingers crossed) and he's starting his next era with a viral Rolling Stone cover... topless. Yes. Harry's bare body is on the cover of Rolling Stone and the entire internet is living for it.

It looks like we'll have to wait a few days for the cover story (the issue hits newsstands on September 3rd) but until then we can enjoy the lead photo from the spread in all its glory.

Shot by Ryan McGinley, it shows Harry shirtless wearing nothing but his famous gold cross necklace, smiling at the camera, with his hair slicked back. It also features the extremely intriguing title: "Sex, psychedelics and the secrets of stardom".

Fans also think that the Rolling Stone cover means that Harry will be releasing his second album very soon and it actually seems likely. Last time Harry did a Rolling Stone cover story was in April 2017. His debut solo single 'Sign of the Times' followed a few days after and a few weeks later, he released Harry Styles.

Naturally, fans are freaking out over the cover and the prospect of new music.

We agree.
