Watch: Sweet Creature x Harry Styles

Harry announced the new track over Twitter yesterday with some intensely emotional phrasing, explaining,
“Album available in ten days (it’s out next Friday). I’m available always.”

“Sweet Creature” becomes the third song expected to appear on the singer’s eponymous debut album which will be released May 12. This is the second solo song recorded by Styles — with his first, “Sign Of The Times,” reaching a peak of No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100.

It sounds so much like Ed Sheeran you’d think it was their rumored collaboration; instead, it was co-written by Thomas Hull, formerly the folk-indie artist Kid Harpoon who eventually became a Skrillex collaborator, as befits former buzz artists looking to transition to the more sedate, professional side of the music industry.

Like Sheeran’s best songs, it foregoes fancy language for naked yearning, hoping to charm you with earnestness.

The repeated refrain of the title grates a little, but there’s a lovely little moment where he sings “Whenever I’m out of rope,” stretching out the last syllable like the word he’s singing, before a swollen pause gives way to a conclusive sentiment: “You bring me home.”

Sincere? That’s for you to decide, but he’s committed to the part.

“Sweet Creature”

Sweet creature
Had another talk about where it’s going wrong
But we’re still young
We don’t know where we’re going but we know where we belongNo, we started
Two hearts in one home
It’s hard when we argue
We’re both stubborn, I know

But oh
Sweet creature, sweet creature
Wherever I go, you bring me home
Sweet creature, sweet creature
When I run out of rope, you bring me homeSweet creature
We’re running through the garden, oh, where nothing bothered us
But we’re still young
I always think about you and how we don’t speak enoughNo, we started
Two hearts in one home
I know it’s hard when we argue
We’re both stubborn, I know

But oh
Sweet creature, sweet creature
Wherever I go, you bring me home
Sweet creature, sweet creature
When I run out of rope, you bring me home
I know when we started
Just two hearts in one home
It gets harder when we argue
We’re both stubborn, I know

But oh
Sweet creature, sweet creature
Wherever I go, you bring me home
Sweet creature, sweet creature
When I run out of rope, you bring me home
You bring me home
