The world music legend retweeted the clip with a pair of clapping emoji, tagging the pop star, the long-running radio show and his own Real World Studios, which earned a shout-out from the former One Direction-er during his Stern appearance.
When introducing his performance, Styles called the 1986 anthem from Gabriel’s fifth solo studio album, So, “the best-mixed song ever” before revealing he recorded a bulk of the material from his new album Fine Line at the veteran rocker’s Bath, England-based studio. (Naturally, he and his team couldn’t resist blasting “Sledgehammer” in the room before jumping into the recording process.)
