Harry Styles – Tiny Desk Concert

Over the last few years, NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts – a video series of live performances, hosted by  Bob Boilen – have become famed and loved for its cozy and intimate (if not, slightly unusual), concert setting; where artists, both world renown and emerging, and of all genres; have put on some incredible live performances. From Mac Miller to Coldplay, The Jonas Brothers to Anderson .Paak; so may incredible artists have appeared on the series. So it was no surprise that at some point, Harry Styles would also appear on the show. And finally, after teasers and speculation, Harry’s Tiny Desk performance has finally aired; and it definitely does not disappoint.

The set list features four tracks from his sophomore album Fine Line, released December last year.  Starting on a more chilled note, Harry kicked off the set with Cherry; a surprisingly mellow, tentatively upbeat break up song, with an edge of forlornness and distinct country vibes. This was then followed up by Hit single Watermelon Sugar, another fan favourite To Be So Lonely, and of course, ending it on a high note with the third single off of the album, Adore You. 

In between the tracks and music, which featured some incredible vocals and acoustic performances from both Harry and his band; Harry talked about the tracks, the process of writing the songs and the inspiration behind them. 

“It’s kind of about that initial, I guess, euphoria, of when you start seeing someone, you start sleeping with someone, or just being around someone and you have that excitement about them.”

  1. Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the
    theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would
    appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

    Hi Alex,

    Thank you so much, glad you like the content!

    Of course not! The theme I’m using is called Bard and I’ve found it really user friendly and easy to edit and navigate.

    Thanks for the support and good luck with your site!
    Say safe too.
