"As It Was" is Styles' first new material since 2019's Fine Line album, and is accompanied by a Tanu Muino-directed video.

Rolling Stone reports that Muino said of the video, "Shooting him was bittersweet, as it was one of the happiest days of my life, but on the second day of the shoot, my country Ukraine was invaded, so you can imagine the insane emotions we had while shooting. Me and my team from Ukraine poured so much love into this video, and you can see it onscreen."

The new song was written with and produced by Kid Harpoon and Tyler Johnson.

Styles' upcoming third solo album will feature 13 songs. The tracklist is yet to be revealed.

"As It Was" is out now. Harry Styles' Harry's House album will arrive 20 May via Columbia.
