And why are we just hearing about this song now? It's been around for seven or eight months!
Here's the scoop: a video recording for "Don't Let Me Go," a song from songwriter Sam McCarthy, featuring Harry, started making the rounds.
As you'd expect, the song got major attention on Twitter and Sam tweeted: "Wow! Thanks for all the nice tweets about the song. Harry did most of the words I did the music. X."
Yep, songwriter Harry!
It's a really beautiful ballad and fans are smitten--but also worried. Does this mean Harry will quit 1D any time soon?

Seems it's missing four other boys' voices though. Or maybe that's just us.
