The two-year wait is finally over.
Harry Styles has released his second album, Fine Line, a 12-track album yesterday. The singles of “Lights Up,” “Watermelon Sugar,” and “Adore You,” are joined by “Golden,” “Cherry,” “To Be So Lonely,” “Sunflower Vol.6,” “She,” “Treat People With Kindness,” “Falling,” “Canyon Moon,” and “Fine Line.” So far, the only songs to have music videos are “Lights Up” and “Adore You.”
Styles sat down with Rolling Stones to discuss the tracks of the new album and said, “The overall arc is just that I tried to redefine what success means to me. I tried to rewire what I thought about it. A lot changes in two years, especially after coming out of the band and just working out what life is now. I feel so much freer, making this album — you get to a place where you feel happy even if the song is about the time when you weren’t that happy.”
To record Fine Line, Styles spent six weeks at Shangri-La studio in Malibu wearing bell-bottom jeans and visiting the beach. Styles promoted the album over the past two months by tweeting for the first time in five months and hosting and performing on Saturday Night Live. More recently, he hosted the Late Late Show, filling in for James Corden.
Now that Fine Line has been released, we can only expect that Styles will go back to hiding before his world tour.
