Harry Styles recently headed to Metropolis Studios in London to record the UK version of Spotify Singles. The two-track session included an acoustic version of his ballad “Two Ghosts” from his self-titled debut album, as well as his rendition of Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush”.
The new stripped down version of “Two Ghosts” pairs well with Styles’ new attempt at a folk sound, especially as he leaned into a country vibe a bit more on the next track.
Two days before the Sept. 27 release, Styles performed the Little Big Town cover for the first time at the Nashville stop of his current tour. The same venue, the legendary Ryman Auditorium, also was home to a Little Big Town residency that ended earlier in September.
At the time, Styles noted that the Ryman show was “kind of the reason” he booked the tour, referring to “Girl Crush” as “one of my favorite songs recently that’s come out of this place.”
The singer continues on his sold-out tour, with the American leg coming to a conclusion on Oct. 14 in Phoenix before heading overseas, wrapping up in Tokyo on Dec. 8. View all of Styles’ upcoming tour dates here.
