Practically two years after his debut solo album, Harry Styles is releasing some new music.
The brand new single, “Lights Up,” dropped Thursday night time after a collection of mysterious posters started popping up round London and New York with the caption “DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE?” Regardless of not mentioning Kinds by identify, the billboards did embody the phrase “TPWK,” an abbreviation that corresponds with Kinds’ tour merchandise wording (“deal with individuals with kindness”) along with the Columbia Information emblem. It appears doubtless that “Do You Know Who You Are?” is the identify of the brand new album.

The music is a little bit of a departure from Kinds’ debut, which adopted an unexpectedly early ’70s sound that at occasions recalled Elton John, Nilsson and different luminaries of the period; that album was produced largely by the group of Jeff Bhasker, Tyler Johnson and Alex Salibian. This one is a shimmering pop ballad, cowritten and produced by Johnson, that vaguely remembers songs from Justin Timberlake’s early solo albums. It comes with a video (under) that includes a shirtless Kinds snuggling with a number of scantily clad younger individuals, using a motorbike and usually wanting dreamy.
Kinds’ final album, the eponymous “Harry Styles,” debuted in 2017 to sturdy critiques, due largely partly to its shocking new sound for the previous One Route singer — gone have been the teenager idol’s iconic pop croonings in favor of a 70s rock ‘n’ roll vibe.
