Harry Styles is home, and he’s giving fans a tour of it.
On Friday, the former One Direction crooner and now-Grammy winner shared his third studio album, Harry’s House, featuring 13 tracks—12 of which are brand new. After already releasing Billboard Hot 100 topper “As It Was” and breaking some streaming records in the process, Styles’ latest effort now gives the lead single a home of its own just two years after the release of his sophomore LP, Fine Line.
Appropriately, Styles revealed the importance of the album in an April interview withBetter Homes and Gardens, telling writer Lou Stoppard that he’s past the point of being concerned if this one is a commercial success anymore.
“I just want to make stuff that is right, that is fun, in terms of the process, that I can be proud of for a long time, that my friends can be proud of, that my family can be proud of, that my kids will be proud of one day,” he shared.
But, as it looks, Harry’s House is poised to once again top the charts, as HITS Daily Double is projecting incredible first-week numbers from Styles, who is expected to crack between 400,000 and 450,000 in week 1 alone. This would beat out Kendrick Lamar’s expected first-week numbers for Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers to hold the title of best first week of 2022 so far.
“I realized that that home feeling isn’t something that you get from a house; it’s more of an internal thing. You realize that when you stop for a minute,” Styles told BH&G of his album title.
