Harry Styles is back, we repeat Harry Styles is BACK!
After revealing last November that HS2 was indeed on its way, the singer is back with his latest single titled ‘Lights Up.’
In typical Harry fashion, he took to Twitter and let fans know by tweeting ‘Lights Up. Out Now’. Simple, but effective.

Lights Up was produced by Tyler Johnson and Kid Harpoon (Tom Hull), who both also co wrote the track with Harry. The mid-tempo jam features Harry’s voice effortlessly gliding across a soft guitar and a strong beat and the catchy chorus of ‘Lights up and they know who you are, Know who you are, Do you know who you are?’ While this is certainly a new sound for Harry, he keeps the rockstar elements of his debut album with backing vocal shouts across the bridge section of the track.
Fans are already loving the new track and have been sharing their excitement online in the way fans do best, through memes.

‘Lights Up’ marks a change in Harry’s career and a new statement from an artist who has always delivered the unexpected. After beginning his career with revolutionary Sign of the Times, a single that those who were not fans of Harry would have never expected him to do, he has now ventured into a slight psychedelic funk-pop. Harry Styles has kick-started this era asking the question “Do you know who you are?” and for Harry, the answer will always keep changing as he navigates through his career. He cannot be kept into one box but the music remains at the core fundamentally ‘Harry Styles.’
We are absolutely loving the HS2/Lights Up era so far and we cannot wait to see what other surprises Harry has up his sleeves for the next era of his career.
