With his eagerly-awaited third album ‘Harry’s House’ out on 20th May, Harry Styles is giving us the first glimpse of what to expect, returning with lead single ‘As It Was’.
A vulnerable new pop bop, the track comes alongside a video directed by Ukrainian filmmaker Tanu Muino.
“Directing a Harry Styles video was a bucket list dream come true for me as he’s my favorite performer,” Tanu says. “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.”
Check out ‘As It Was’ below.
