Narrated by Rosalia, the visuals take place on the mythical Isle of Eroda where, having lost hope, Harry meets a fish who is struggling with the same feelings. Befriending him and eventually uniting the town, it’s a beautiful, if slightly odd, short film directed by Dave Meyers that’ll get you low key emotional.

The new visuals come before his sophomore album ‘Fine Line’ lands on Friday (13th December).

From a musical standpoint, “Adore You” continues Styles’s trend towards psychedelic pop-rock. The song’s themes of self-discovery and acceptance fit with the singles Styles has released so far, especially “Lights Up.” More than anything, I admire the creativity that it takes to release a project like this. In an interview with Zane Lowe, Styles discussed his decision to ignore pressure to create a commercially safe album.

 

The ties back to Styles were tongue-in-cheek once news of this mysterious ad campaign broke. Eroda spelled backward is “adore,” a direct connection to “Adore You.” This idea was further supported by a slogan on the website that read: “Welcome to Eroda! We Adore You.” A comment on the Eroda Twitter feed also claimed to have booked a visit for December for Dec. 13th — an option that is one, unavailable and, two, the same day as Fine Line’s release.

 

 

Harry Styles has done it again. The former One Direction member dropped his new single “Adore You” on Friday, Dec. 6, and the tune is equal parts groovy and romantic. Harry Styles’ “Adore You” lyrics will make you fall in love with him all over…

 

A new video game? A hidden Dungeons & Dragons world? Another ‘Black Mirror’ movie. Good guesses, but Billboard talked to the team behind the viral Harry Styles Eroda campaign to find out how the “Adore You” video inspired a massive online treasure hunt.

Some of Fine Line’s strongest moments are all about the sex appeal – if Cherry and Falling are the heartache, Adore You, Watermelon Sugar and She are the horn. Following the previously released Lights Up and Watermelon Sugar, new single Adore You is probably the most radio friendly song on Fine Line, and one of the most successful; touches of funk and psychedelica merge perfectly with romantic lyrics – ‘I’d walk through the fire for you, just let me adore you’ – which will have the Harry fans who grew up with 1D swooning in their seats. 

 

Review: Harry Styles’ Fine Line is an ode to sex, sadness and psychedelica

Back in 2017, Harry Styles made the grand leap from heartthrob boyband member to rock star with his self-titled debut solo album. The new direction from this One Direction star was well received, with Harry ripping inspiration from Mick Jagger, Beck and Stevie Nicks.

 

It wasn’t until Styles launched a teaser video for “Adore You” that fans started making a connection between the star’s album release and the accounts.
The video alludes to the fictional island, claiming, “In all the seas, in all the world, there has never been a land quite like the isle of Eroda.” In the video Styles finds himself lonely and isolated because of his differences while living on the island, where he befriends a fish until he eventually has to set it free.

[Verse 1: Harry Styles]
Walk in your rainbow paradise (Paradise)
Strawberry lipstick state of mind (State of mind)
I get so lost inside your eyes
Would you believe it?

[Pre-Chorus: Harry Styles]
You don’t have to say you love me
You don’t have to say nothing
You don’t have to say you’re mine

[Chorus: Harry Styles]
Honey (Ah-ah-ah)
I’d walk through fire for you
Just let me adore you
Oh, honey (Ah-ah-ah)
I’d walk through fire for you
Just let me adore you
Like it’s the only thing I’ll ever do
Like it’s the only thing I’ll ever do

[Verse 2: Harry Styles]
You’re wonder under summer sky (Summer sky)
Brown skin and lemon over ice
Would you believe it?

Ooh, ooh
Oh, honey
Ooh, ooh
