The stripped-down show highlighted songs from "Fine Line."
Almost from the very first gig, Harry Styles has gotten used to playing for thousands of screaming, adoring fans. But in his NPR Tiny Desk debut concert, Harry stripped things all the way back for a peaceful, easy feeling four-song set that spotlighted his Fine Line album, peeling the songs back to coffee house melodies that shined a light on his intimate songwriting.
The set kicked off with an acoustic ramble through "Cherry," before picking up the tempo a bit for a track Styles said he wrote in Nashville in 2017 on a day off from the tour for his solo debut. "It's probably the longest it's ever taken me to finish a song," he explained. "We kind of liked it when we first had it and then I really hated it for a long time and it kind of came back and it seemed to kind of kept coming back into the mix."
