1D-ers, rejoice, Harry Styles is back with a new song and music video, and he’s made a triumphant return to the ‘Gram too with three promotional posts for his new music after a one year absence.
His new song is called Lights Up, and it’s a slinky, sexy dream of a track. In the video Harry is mostly half naked for the duration, often in the midst of a pack of sweaty half-naked bodies pressing against each other.
Talking to Rolling Stone for their September cover story in, Harry said of his upcoming album, “it’s about having sex and feeling sad.” He also spoke at length about using psychedelics — his favourite were the mushroom chocolates — and laughed about the time he bit off the tip of his tongue while on mushrooms, joking that he was going to call the album Mushrooms and Blood.
When asked if he could see One Direction ever getting back together, he said, “I don’t know. I don’t think I’d ever say I’d never do it again, because I don’t feel that way. If there’s a time when we all really want to do it, that’s the only time for us to do it, because I don’t think it should be about anything else other than the fact that we’re all like, ‘Hey, this was really fun. We should do this again.’ But until that time, I feel like I’m really enjoying making music and experimenting. I enjoy making music this way too much to see myself doing a full switch, to go back and do that again. Because I also think if we went back to doing things the same way, it wouldn’t be the same, anyway.”
