The sound of Harry Styles’ new album, Harry’s House, has a new style that has taken on the music industry. With thirteen tracks, the listeners buckle up as they go through a roller coaster of emotions provided by this new album. Since it has been three years since Styles released new music, his fans could not wait for an updated version of his sound. 

“It doesn’t matter if people want you to be that thing that they always loved about you or they want you to be that person cause you’re not that person anymore. Everyone is changing and I think there’s no reason to not approach music that way,” Styles elaborated in an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music. 

Releasing the fourth track, As It Was, as a single on March 31, 2022, it became an instant hit and now holds the Guinness World Record title for the most streamed track on Spotify in twenty-four hours. With Harry’s House being Styles’ third album in a time period of less than a decade, it proves how successful Styles has become with his solo career as a previous band member of One Direction. 

“I think this album is the best representative of me and I don’t think I could have made this album if I wasn’t in a place that made me feel like I was allowed to and I think that is very much down to my friends and the environment that I feel like the fans have created for me to be able and go out and make what I want to make,” Styles explained in an interview on SiriusXM Hits1. 

Not only does Styles’ new perspective on music change up his sound, but it contrasts his new music from his previous music. The upbeat and emotional soft pop tracks make his new songs differ from the rest of the music industry. With songs of the summer along with songs that will leave you crying alone in your bedroom, Styles uses different mixes of emotions to connect with his listeners. 

“You open a bunch of doors in your house that you didn’t know existed to find all these rooms you get to explore them and then in a time when it would be easier to emotionally coast, you can no longer do that because you know the room exists and the scale has widened. You feel everything that’s bad so much harder and you feel the good moments so much harder,” Styles expressed to Zane Lowe in their interview.
