Harry Styles To Leave Simon Cowell's Record Label?
However, the star thankfully isn’t quite ready to leave the world of singing behind, with it now being reported that Harry is in the middle of a bidding war between his current record label and Capitol Records for his solo career.
One Direction have been managed by Simon Cowell’s record label Syco, which is owned by Sony, since they were signed after competing on The X Factor in 2010, however, it is thought that the star is not happy with them and wants to spread his wings.
If he takes Capitol Records’ offer, he will be sharing a label with the likes of The Beach Boys, Eagles, and Beck.
Speaking to The Sun, a source shared: “It was obvious from day one that Harry wouldn’t stay with Simon Cowell, Syco or a Sony label.
"He wants to move as far away from the band as possible and for him that means an entirely new team based in America.
"It’s all part of a masterplan being driven by his friend Jeff Azoff, who has set up his own management company to launch Harry as a solo superstar.”
However, Sony aren’t going to give up without a fight as an insider added: “Harry is being offered so many incentives to stay. They’re breaking the bank for him.
