Watch: Olivia Wilde Addresses Her Relationship With Harry Styles

Welcome to Harry's house.
Harry Styles dropped the music video for his new single "As It Was" on March 31. In the video, Harry went on a dancing spree while wearing a red jumpsuit glittering with red sequins. He showed his moves on a giant turntable and on some brick city streets, singing in the chorus, "In this world, it's just us / You know it's not the same as it was." 

At one point, Harry stripped down to a pair of scarlet shorts, embracing an entirely red wardrobe in the music video. 

He also seemingly referenced his relationship with Olivia Wilde in the lyrics, "Leave America, two kids, follow her." (Olivia shares children Otis and Daisy with ex Jason Sudeikis.)

"As It Was" also included vocals from his rumored goddaughter, Ruby Winston. The daughter of Harry's friend Ben Winston earned a credit for "Other" contributions on the track, which starts with a child's voice saying, "Come on, Harry, we wanna say good night to you." Ben tweeted the clip to show his support.

Prior to putting this new song out into the world, Harry teased its arrival on social media. On March 28, Harry posted a still from the music video. The photo showed Harry facing away from the camera towards a hallway. In the sneak-peek shot, Harry rocked the same sparkling red ensemble.

Naturally, fans fled to the comment section to react to the announcement.
One user wrote, "U CANT JUST THROW THIS AT US WITH NO WARNING." While another gushed, "IT'S HAPPENING."

And let us say after it happened, it surely did not disappoint. The song's debut marks the first release from the One Direction alum's upcoming album Harry's House. On March 23, Harry shocked fans by announcing the impending arrival of his third studio album. He released an album trailer which showed shots of people and places ranging from a city street to an empty theater.

The 13-song collection is set to release May 20. And while we would love for the album to come sooner, we are just pleased Harry continues to treat people with kindness and to new music.

Aside from this project, Harry shared on Instagram that he has added more dates to his Love On Tour, which will hit stages in the U.K., Europe and South America starting on June 11.
