Harry Styles recording his own songs?

London: `One Direction` star Harry Styles is reportedly co-writing and recording his own songs as he plans to release an album in the future.

The 19-year-old singer is working on early versions of his songs during numerous visits to the Paramount recording studio in LA, reported Daily Mirror.

"He loves messing around with some of the new songs he`s been working on. He`s bounced some ideas off his friend Ed Sheeran and has already laid down some vocals.

"Harry`s priority is obviously still with 1D. But when he decides the time to go solo has arrived, he`s likely to have a project raring to go," a source said.

Boyband `One Direction` has a three album deal with Media Moghul Simon Cowell and Sony. The band has already released two out of three albums.
