Harry Styles’ new video sees him drowning as he sings of broken relationship

Harry Styles has released the eagerly anticpated new video for single Falling – and it's a highly emotional affair.

The song is the fourth single from the 25-year-old former One Direction singer's second solo album Fine Line, and features the heartthrob in one of his most vulnerable music videos to date.

In the opening scene of the stunningly-shot visual fans see Harry sitting on the floor alone in an abandoned old house soaking wet and exhausted as if he's just been through something major.

Next the singer is sitting at a piano as water starts filtering out of the piano and Harry sings his heart out as he builds up to the impassioned chorus.


Lyrics such as: "Forget what I said, it's not what I meant, and I can't take it back, I can't unpack the baggage you left" are even more poignant against the effective visual backdrop.

The camera pans and then zooms in to capture his chunky costume jewellery.

Known for his risqué fashion choices, the Worcestershire-born star sports a pale see-through blouse with massive frills and a long train, as the water continues to pour out until the whole room is full and Harry is completely under water, still singing his heart out and playing the piano.

He eventually floats away from the piano as all the furniture rises to the top.

As the vid closes it looks like he has drowned, as his eyes are closed and his body is still but then he opens his eyes and is once again alert as the video ends.

Ahead of the album release, Harry suggested that the muse behind the lyrics for Falling was his relationship with his ex-girlfriend Camille Rowe.

The Sun Online reported on the lyrics of the song which read: "I'm in my bed and you're not here. And there's no one to blame but the drink and my wandering hands".

On another track called Cherry, he also appeared to refer to Camille's new partner, singing: "Don't you call him 'baby', we're not talking lately. Don't you call him what you used to call me".

Adding: "Does he take you walking round his parents' gallery?"

Camille's new boyfriend is art collector Theo Niarchos, whose father Philip owns a huge art collection.

Fans were quick to try and figure out the meaning of the emotionally-charged video and took to the Youtube comments section to pen their theories.


"i think the beginning is actually the end. he's sitting on the floor, still dealing with what just happened – but he made it through. he survived the terrible feelings he felt" speculated one.

"the more he plays the more water gushes out from the piano, meaning the more he lets himself sit in his grief the more harm he causes himself" wrote another.

Other were full of praise the lyrics to the song and his fashion sense.

"I can't imagine how he wrote the lyrics. So raw. He's been through something." wrote a viewer.

While another gushed: "Harry styles breaking all sorts of masculinity stereotypes in fashion In crying In being vulnerable In who he is as a person is everything I’m living for. "
