Harry Styles’ new single actually fits right now very well

Former One Direction member Harry Styles releases bops regularly, but his most recent single actually fits the vibe of society. If you haven’t heard, the 28-year-old just announced his third album is set to come out May 20 and released his first single from “Harry’s House,” “As It Was” on April 1. The song slaps, with a whimsical instrumental, the energy of the songs seems to be carefree and fun, much like the feeling of spring. That feeling that makes you want to drive with the windows down, take a walk, burn some herbs and day drink. Currently, it’s spring, meaning that the weather is warming up, seasonal depression is slowly going away and the pandemic seems to finally be releasing the chokehold it’s had on the world since March of 2020.

When you actually listen to what homie is saying, sh*t’s sad. 

“In this world, it’s just us. You know it’s not the same as it was. As it was, as it was. You know it’s not the same,” goes the song.

Like yeah we’re getting old, nothing ever stays the same, Harry. Please stop bringing it up because I was just a sophomore and now I’m about to graduate. 

“Answer the phone. ‘Harry, you’re no good alone. Why are you sitting at home on the floor? What kind of pills are you on?’ Ringin’ the bell and nobody’s coming to help,” it continues. 

This one is just sad. Currently, when you look beyond spring and how nice it is to feel as if we’re finally moving out of the pandemic, nothing is really okay. Russia is waging a horrific war, many cities are facing rising crime rates and generally life is moving way too fast and changing in all aspects without any consideration of who is actually emotionally available to move into new periods of life. Harry really said nothing is the same and everyone is ignoring how utterly sad life is, just a wild time.
