Your body will feel things.
Upon the first listen of Harry Styles’ new song, “Lights Up,” it’s miles better than anything he previously released off his self-titled (not a diss, rather a testament to how perfect “Lights Up” is).
On the Tyler Johnson-produced track, Styles plays with the theme of light and dark concerning woes of the heart.
“All the lights couldn’t put out the dark running through my heart / Lights up, and they know who you are. Know who you are. Do you know who you are,” he sings over a dreamy beat and soaring accompanying choir background vocals. “I’m not ever going back.”
Styles says his sophomore album features songs about “having *** and feeling sad.” The video touches on that – Styles sings slightly devoid of emotion amidst a sea of sweaty bodies – both male and female. We love an inclusive king.
