After teasing his new single earlier this week, Harry Styles on Thursday evening released "As It Was."
The sprightly new track is the lead single off the former One Direction singer's upcoming third album Harry's House, which is coming May 20 via Columbia Records. It also continues Styles' massive career momentum as he enters what is likely the biggest chapter of his solo career, including a headlining slot at Coachella on April 15 and 22.
The accompanying video for "As It Was," directed by Ukrainian filmmaker Tanu Muino, finds Styles thoroughly embracing his rockstar status.
“Directing a Harry Styles video was a bucket list dream come true for me as he’s my favorite performer,” says Tanu. “Shooting him was bittersweet as it was one of the happiest days of my life, but on the second day of the shoot, my country Ukraine was invaded so you can imagine the insane emotions we had while shooting. Me and my team from Ukraine poured so much love into this video and you can see it on screen. It will be a music video I will never forget and now I can happily retire."
