Harry Styles is trending worldwide today – and if you watch his spicy new video you'll see why
Good morning and welcome to the best day of the year; the day Harry Styles decided to grace the world with a new track.
Harry surprised fans with Lights Up, the first single from his upcoming second album, late last night.
We knew he was working on new music after comments he made earlier this year, but the only hint that something was imminent was the posters bearing the words 'DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE?' that popped up in London and New York City in recent days, along with the letters TPWK. Fans guessed this stood for Treat People With Kindness, a phrase that featured on his last tour's merch, and made the connection.
Now Lights Up is here and people have a lot of feelings. Harry Styles started trending worldwide on Twitter within minutes.

The song might best be described as a grower (give it a few listens) but it's the video that's really gotten fans excited.
In it, Harry writhes around with a group of men and women, wears sequins, croons from the back of a motorbike and is eventually stopped by police. He's also soaking wet pretty much throughout.
The video, the song's lyrics (check them out here) and the fact that today is National Coming Out Day, have prompted some fans to call Lights Up a bisexual anthem.
