On March 23, Harry Styles released a teaser and release date for his third studio album, “Harry’s House,” which is due out May 20. However, over the past week there have been plenty of hints that new music is coming soon – if you’re paying attention.
The former One Direction member has released two solo albums so far: 2017’s ‘Harry Styles’ and 2019’s ‘Fine Line’. He’s also earned a wide array of movie credits, including Christopher Nolan’s. Dunkirk and Marvel The Eternals. Upcoming acting projects include a film adaptation of Bethan Roberts’ book my policeman and Olivia Wilde’s thriller don’t worry darling alongside Florence Pugh.
The pop singer has a busy schedule ahead of him as he will also be one of the headliners at this year’s Coachella Music Festival alongside Billie Eilish and Kanye “Ye” West.
Although very little was said about the new album, fans made the connection when a mysterious Twitter account was created. Among the clues are special doors that revealed book covers and a discord account with the words “You Are Home”. Once the album cover came out, everything fell into place.
Back in February, Styles was spotted filming a possible new music video. Footage showed the “Watermelon Sugar” singer on a giant bed on the streets of London. Continued pictures in a different setting were released about a week later.
Many fans believe that Styles has a secret Tiktok account because Styles received his billion stream plaque from Spotify. His song “Watermelon Sugar” hit the milestone this year. Fans spotted an article that read “HS3 Announcement Video” which sparked new music rumors.
Also in February, social media accounts with the username @Are you home were created and fans began to believe that Styles and his team were somehow behind it. It became official when Styles followed the accounts.
On the Instagram account, they began to post photos of open houses with pictures behind them. Fans have understood that some images are book covers which connects to the album and others have theories which they relate to the lyrics. In the Twitter account’s bio, links to a public Discord where fans can interact with each other, other Discord chats are named after typical household items, including “vase”, “door” and ” lamp”.
Fans have also noticed that Target employees leaked information about the album days before the official announcement causing debate.
“Target’s system leaks SO MUCH INFO,” one commenter wrote.
Another exclaimed, “Why can’t you let Harry surprise us?!”
“I wish they’d kept that to themselves,” one user admitted.
Finally, Styles unveiled his upcoming third album, “Harry’s Home,” complete with the album cover and a trailer.
Styles has been known to tease fans before officially announcing any music news. During his “Fine Line” era, Styles was seen filming a music video. Later, “Eroda” was a main topic that was used as a website which turned out to be “Adore” backwards and led to the music video for “Adore You”.
