Today, May 20, 2022, Harry Styles‘ new work is released two years after his last album Fine Line and after the complicated period brought by the coronavirus pandemic that has affected more than one artist.
His fans could not be more excited about the arrival of the new album, especially after listening to the single As it was, which became the most played song in just 24 hours on Spotify USA, achieving a record recognized in the music industry. The expectation increased after a 40-second video shared by the artist in order to promote the project. A few seconds of just images created thousands of theories among his fans.
Harry’s House contains 13 songs divided into two groups. Group A contains the songs Music for a Shushi Restaurant, Late Night Talking, Grapejuice, As It Was, Daylight, Little Freak and Matilda. In the second group of songs, group B, we find the tracks Cinema, Daydreaming, Keep Driving, Satelite, Boyfriends and Love Of My Life.
In the soundtrack revealed, the artist intends to explore all the dimensions of the concept of “house” as well shown on the album cover in which the artist is placed in a room “upside down”.
The meaning of “house” as a physical thing is mentioned throughout the lyrics, in a way that names the different places a house can have, such as the kitchen, the garden or the living room. However, Harry Styles‘ work has a much deeper and more personal dimension and the concept of “house” takes on a more emotional meaning that has to do with the artist’s feelings. This refers to what the songs themselves narrate, which talk about topics such as family, the passing of time, love and even the relationship with oneself. Thus, the artist reflects on how personal experiences are fundamental when building a home, as fundamental as the foundations of a house.
During these months, Harry left clues about what was going to be the style of his new album and it soon became clear that As It Was was just the tip of the Iceberg. At the Coachella festival in California, he sang Boyfriends and Late Night Talking, as a small preview of what Harry’s House would contain.
As soon as the album was released, Harry Styles published several posts on his social networks, showing that he was just as excited as his fans to share his long-awaited album with them.
