English singer and songwriter Harry Styles has released a new song, “As It Was”, off his third studio album, “Harry’s House.”
Released on 20 May 2022 by Columbia and Erskine Records. The album was preceded by the single “As It Was”.
Harry Styles announced the title of his third studio album as Harry’s House on 23 March 2022, unveiling its artwork, a 40-second trailer and the album’s release date as 20 May 2022. In the trailer, Styles steps on the podium of a theatre and grins while a “house facade” rises near him and synthesisers play in the background.
Harry’s House will feature 13 tracks. Joni Mitchell, who included a track called “Harry’s House / Centerpiece” on her 1975 album The Hissing of Summer Lawns, tweeted that she “love[d] the title”.
Upon announcing the album, he set up an interactive website and a new Twitter account. The messages say “you are home” and “in this world, it’s just us, you know it’s not the same as it was”.
In an interview with Apple Music, Styles explained how he came up with the album title: “The album is named after Haruomi Hosono, he had an album in the 70’s called ‘Hosono’s House’, and I spent that chunk in Japan; I heard that record and I was like ‘I love that. It’d be really fun to make a record called Harry’s House.”
