Harry Styles has released the official music video for Falling, a track from his critically-acclaimed album Fine Line. 

The powerful video was directed by Dave Meyers, who Harry previously collaborated with for the Adore You visual. Harry gave the live television debut of Falling with a stunning performance at the 2020 Brit Awards last week.

The lyrics reflect on the end of the relationship and finding yourself again after heartbreak. It could be said that the use of water – while clearly tying to the earlier work, Adore You – could also symbolise being overwhelmed by a flood of emotions. 

A fan, named Ashley, wrote in the comments underneath the video: "Vicious cycle. At the start, he's soaking wet like the water had only just drained out. He finally dries out but ends up doing the same thing over again, even though he knows what's going to happen. When the water is halfway up the walls, one of the windows opens to let in more light, but he doesn't even notice."


Harry kicks off his 2020 world tour, Love On Tour, in April in the UK and will travel across Europe and North America before concluding in South America in October. Asia, Australia and additional tour dates are to be announced this year.

His just-announced Harryween shows will take place over Halloween weekend on 30 and 31 October at Madison Square Garden in New York City, with special guest opener Orville Peck.
