Harry Styles performs "Sign of the Times" on Saturday Night Live on April 15, 2017. 

Harry Styles brought his A-game for his first post-One Direction visit to Saturday Night Live. He also brought a sharp suit, his Bowie-esque vocals, and some Beatles-style bass lines to the April 15 episode.

In addition to appearing in an opening monologue dance routine, a Family Feud sketch as Mick Jagger, and a Civil War boy band skit, Styles performed an intense rendition of his first solo single, “Sign of the Times,” from his forthcoming, self-titled debut album, just announced to release on May 12. 

Styles' second performance, "Ever Since New York," closed with a few blissful bars of a cappella and tight, multi-part harmony (and the band member in a maroon vintage tux didn't hurt, either).

The singer last graced the SNL stage in December 2014 with the rest of One Direction.
