March 16, 2020 | Lyndsey McKenna and Marissa Lorusso -- Like many who have graced the Tiny Desk before him, the awkwardness of performing in a working office wasn't lost on Harry Styles. "It just feels like you're in the way," he joked. But when you watch his set from behind Bob Boilen's desk, you'd never suspect any discomfort.
Backed by his touring band, Styles performed several songs from his latest solo album, Fine Line. Between tracks, he talked about the process of writing these songs: From the day off in Nashville that led to "Watermelon Sugar," to the feeling of lovesickness he tried to capture in "Adore You." The camaraderie between the band was clear; and Styles was in on the joy, twirling in his seat between verses.
Styles might not necessarily be the first name that comes to mind when you think of public radio's only working, desk-music-discovery platform. After all, he's got a wildly devoted fanbase that's followed his every move since his One Direction days. In fact, before soundcheck had even started, a crowd of fans had begun to gather outside NPR HQ. They rightly suspected he would be playing a Tiny Desk concert after word got out that the former One Directioner was spotted in D.C. with no tour date on his public schedule.
But beyond the headlines, Styles has proven to be an artist who takes his songcraft and aesthetic seriously, interested in subverting expectations of what a pop star can and should sound like in 2020. That sense of unpretentious creativity is exactly what he brought to his Tiny Desk performance - and it definitely earned him some new adoring public radio fans in the process.
"I have to come into NPR more often," Styles said after he and his band played their first song. "It's nice here."
We - and our massive crowd of colleagues - couldn't agree more.

Listen to our new podcast, Louder Than A Riot, to hear about the interconnected rise of hip-hop and mass incarceration. Through the stories of Bobby Shmurda to Nipsey Hussle, we’ll reveal how rhyme and punishment in America have always gone hand-in-hand. Check us out at: apple.co/louderthanariotpodcast

I've never liked One Direction, I even tried one of their albums back when they were on top of the "Pop" world, but I couldn't understand what was so good about them, my loss of course. Then when that ended, I first listened to some songs of Niall Horan and I somehow liked it, I even listened to it whenever I wanted to get out of my musical comfort zone and it was cool, better than One Direction (at least for me)... When talking about Harry Styles, I've never really have listened to anything that he has done while in his solo career, but NPR showed me that it might be interesting... I'm about to try listening to an album from him now, possibly I won't like it as much as this session, but if I don't, I can always come back to this video. Thank you NPR. ^^

@ocapitãofantástico Thankyou so much for taking the time to write this review
@J first I listened to the self-titled one and I did enjoy some songs, but thought it was very disconnected between songs, I enjoy when an album isn't solely focused on one genre, but this one seemed too off... Then, since I noticed that none of the songs of the self-titled were played in NPR, I checked Fine Line and I pretty much enjoyed it as a whole, it's connected while having so many different types of songs and it's a genuine piece of fresh art. What amazes me the most is how it's so similar to the sound of bands that I enjoy and that don't have anything to do with One Direction, which makes me think that, maybe, while as a solo artist, Harry is totally himself. Sunflower, Vol.6 is my go to song, the favourite and possibly the coolest song I've listened in 2020 so far. So, thanks NPR for making me go out of my way to listen to something different, while being something I can also fit between other bands or artists I like as well. Edit: sorry for taking long to reply and also, sorry for the long reply, ahah!
