Harry Styles released the first track on the album Harry’s House.
Titled “As It Was”, the single’s debut is accompanied by a music video starring the artist himself, reminiscent of an old love. “In this world, it’s just us/you know it’s not the same as before,” he sings in the chorus. The song then continues with a verse that alludes to the feeling of loneliness. “Answer the phone/Harry, you’re not good alone/Why are you sitting at home on the floor?/What kind of pills do you take?” Styles says in the second verse.
The artist shows herself in a series of red dresses, including a coat and a sleeveless suit dressed in sequins and underwear.
I go home, I go on, fast internet; I don’t want to talk about what it was like; Leave America, two children, in love; I don’t want to talk about who’s doing it first,” sings Harry Styles. Many thought these words referred to Olivia Wilde, who leaves the USA to spend time with him in London, and how her two children followed her there. Others also think that the little girl at the song’s beginning would be one of her children with ex Jason Sudeikis. However, the singer himself has denied this hypothesis, revealing that it is his goddaughter Ruby Winston.
