It’s Harry’s House release month, and Harry Styles is continuing the introduction of his new musical era with a relaxing vinyl record unboxing.
In a two-minute video uploaded to YouTube on Wednesday (May 4), the singer’s third vinyl album is seen on a patch of grass. Styles’ tattooed hands– complete with mint green Pleasing nail polish, of course — reach into the screen and open the cover, revealing a black-and-white photo of the smiling crooner. He then pull out a royal blue slip from the case, protecting the vinyl record. On the other side of the case is a pamphlet, which he begins to open while sitting with his feet in a swimming pool.
The pamphlet, as is typical with vinyl record pamphlets, has the album’s musical credits plus some more photos of Styles and what appears to be a brief note from the star.
Harry’s House is out on May 20. The album’s lead single, “As It Was,” notched a third week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart dated May 7, 2022. It premiered at the top three weeks earlier and, after dipping to No. 2, rebounded to the top a week ago.
