Harry Styles was the latest artist to play at NPR’s Tiny Desk, bringing acoustic versions of tracks from his second album, Fine Line. Take a look below.

After beginning with Cherry, Styles explained the tricky process of writing Watermelon Sugar: “It’s probably the longest it has ever taken me to finish a song,” he said. “We kind of liked it when we first had it and then I really hated it for a long time and it kind of came back and it seemed to kind of kept coming back into the mix.”

Styles released his self-titled solo album in 2017, marking a departure from what people were used to given his work with One Direction. The record drew inspiration from ‘70s hard rock and blues rock, featuring more distorted guitars than (probably) every One Direction record put together, as well as some stellar fills courtesy of drummer Sarah Jones.

Fine Line was released late last year, occasionally featuring a more psychedelic approach than its predecessor.
