“#HS3 track list and release date leaked,” they captioned it. “An insider close to Columbia Records has provided us with a leaked promotional image for @Harry_Styles’ upcoming album, featuring the album’s track list and release date — November 19, 2021.”
The track list contains songs called “Mango,” “Fisherman Love Story,” “Lights Down,” “Treat Me! With Kindness” and more. It even contains collabs with Lizzo, Eminem, Styles’ girlfriend, Olivia Wilde, and his ex Taylor Swift. The tweet quickly gained a lot of attention online, receiving more than 2,000 retweets and 9,000 likes. It’s obviously still unclear whether or not the image is real, but many fans are freaking out over it.
What Concrete Info Do We Have On The Album?
So while the track list and release date are still unconfirmed, there is some things we do know for sure. Back in July, the singer actually confirmed that his new tunes were coming soon while giving us an update on his tour, Love on Tour.
For those who don’t know, Styles was actually supposed to hit the road this month, but because of the coronavirus pandemic he announced that he was postponing the concerts until the fall. And while sharing the news, he also dropped a hint that he’s going to release some new songs soon — so you might want to prepare yourselves!
“Love on Tour will be going out across the USA this September and I could not be more excited for these shows. As always, the well-being of my fans, band, and crew, is my top priority. Safety guidelines will be available on the respective venue websites to ensure we can all be together as safely as possible. Please notice that some dates have changed, and new shows have been added,” he wrote. “To everyone in the UK and across the world, I can’t wait to see you again, but for obvious reasons it is just not possible at this time. I will be sharing more news soon about shows across the globe and new music. I love you all so much. I’m excited and I can’t wait to see you.”
“New music?!?!?” Naturally, those two words quickly caught the eyes of millions of fans, who took to Twitter to share their excitement.
“I’m gonna pass out,” one tweeted, with another adding, “Sir, you’re gonna give me a heart attack.”
MOOD. It turns out, the “Sign of the Times” crooner was spotted in Bath, England, earlier this year, which some fans were quick to point out is the location for the studio that his last LP, Fine Line, was recorded in. Coincidence? We hope not. But when will it come out, you ask? Unfortunately, there’s no release date for it yet, but one Twitter user did point out that Styles loves to surprise us with new music and has dropped stuff without warning in the past, so be ready at all times.
“Harry said new music soon… This is the same man who announced ‘Lights Up’ an hour before it was released. He could literally drop the first single for HS3 at any moment,” they wrote.
As for the tour, it will kick off in Las Vegas, NV, on September 4, 2021. It will stretch over 30 cities and will conclude on November 20, 2021, in Los Angeles, CA.
Will There Be Any Collabs On It?
Lizzo actually confirmed in a recent interview that she’d love to make a song with the “Golden” crooner.
“Honestly that’s so funny you say that, I feel like it would be a love duet. You know, we both have so much love for each other and we love to sing about love,” she dished to Capital FM when asked about the possibility of them collaborating. “But, we’re also very happy-go-lucky if you think about ‘Juice’ and ‘Watermelon Sugar,’ you know what I mean? We could do that too. So, who knows? That’s what I love about that, it’s like anything can come out of it. We can make the ‘Thong Song!’”
Plus, after they were spotted chatting at the Grammys, some people think Styles and Swift have something up their sleeves. Guess we’ll have to wait and see!
What Else Has Harry Styles Been Up To Lately?
Styles has actually kept very busy during the pandemic. The musician — who made his acting debut in 2017 — actually filmed two new movies recently, so get ready to see him on the big screen again! The first is called Don’t Worry Darling, which wrapped filming back in February. Styles will star alongside Florence Pugh (who fans may recognize from Little Women, Midsommar, Black Widow and more), Chris Pine (who is most known for his role in Star Trek, but also acted in Wonder Woman, Into the Woods and others) and Fifty Shades of Grey‘s Dakota Johnson. But want to know the best part? Drum roll please… Olivia Wilde is directing the movie! Plus, Katie Silberman (who was behind films like Isn’t It Romantic, the Netflix movie Set It Up and more) wrote the screenplay. Wow, talk about a dream team.
Deadline reported that the film “is set in an isolated, utopian community in the 1950s California desert.” According to Collider, Pugh will play “an unhappy housewife who slowly begins to question her own sanity when she starts to notice strange occurrences.” As for Pine, he will star as “the leader of a mysterious worksite.” The outlet adds, “All the men are employed just outside of town, and Pine’s character is revered by all of his staffers and their wives, almost in a cult-like fashion.”
Johnson’s character reportedly lives next door to Pugh, and “will begins to exhibit strange, paranoid behavior and tries to warn Pugh that everything in their community is not what it seems.” But what about the 1D heartthrob, you ask? Well, Collider reported that the 26-year-old will play “Pugh’s picture-perfect husband, who loves her dearly, but is hiding a dark secret from her.” Sounds intense!
The other movie is called My Policeman and is going to be based off a book by Bethan Roberts. It’s currently in production in London.
“The story takes place in the late 1990s, when the arrival of elderly invalid Patrick into Marion and Tom’s home, triggers the exploration of seismic events from 40 years previous: the passionate relationship between Tom and Patrick at a time when homosexuality was illegal,” the synopsis reads, according to the outlet.
Somehow, in between landing major movie roles and recording his third album, Styles has also found time to fall in love! That’s right, he’s currently in a relationship with Wilde, who he reportedly fell for while he was filming Don’t Worry Darling.
“Olivia and Harry are together for long days on set and have gotten to know each other really well, so it’s all very organic,” a source told Entertainment Tonight back when they first got together. “[Wilde] wouldn’t let a romantic relationship get in the way of a professional one, so anything they’re doing is being done thoughtfully. So it’s not like she’s rushing into something.”
The pair went public with their love on January 4, 2021, when they were spotted holding hands at Styles’ manager, Jeff Azoff‘s wedding, and the internet quickly went into a frenzy over the pairing. And according to Us Weekly, Styles and Wilde were “very careful” to keep their relationship private at first.
“Olivia and Harry were able to keep their relationship under wraps for a bit before it became public knowledge,” an insider explained. “They were very careful about it and even sleuthy at times, although the small group of people who were on set with them every day eventually figured it out.”
They were recently pictured on vacation in Italy together, and boy, did it look romantic.
Is There Anything Else Harry Styles’ Fans Have To Look Forward To?
It turns out, there’s even more for Styles’ fans to look forward to! Yep, there’s currently rumors circulating that the 27-year-old may be launching his very own perfume and cosmetic line soon. According to documents posted online, Styles has reportedly filed a trademark for a new beauty company, which is called “PLEASED AS HOLDINGS LIMITED.” And get this, you guys — the papers reportedly list “wholesale of perfume and cosmetics” as the nature of the business. The pop star is listed as the director of the new company, alongside Emma Spring — who has worked as his personal assistant for years.
Wow, Styles has so much in the works, and we can’t wait! Hopefully he shares some more details about his upcoming music soon!
