What is 'Late Night Talking' about?

'Late Night Talking' is a 70s-esque, synth-infused track that explores themes of love, comfort and intimacy.

The romantic song is an upbeat take on the small pleasures of a relationship, with Harry confidently bearing his emotions to his love interest, singing: "If you're feeling down / I just wanna make you happier, baby."

Styles celebrates the romance within the mundane, saying throughout that he has simply just fallen in love with "late-night talking" with his other half.

"We've been doin' all this late-night talkin' / 'Bout anything you want until thе morning / Now you're in my life / I can't get you off my mind"

Harry Styles' 'Late Night Talking' music video

Harry sent the internet into a tailspin on July 11 when he teased his mammoth fan base with a snippet of his upcoming music video for 'Late Night Talking'.

The official Harry Styles HQ Instagram account posted a clip showing Harry's feet dangling out of bed as he sports two long blue socks as he whistles the melody of the upcoming single. At the end of the video, the mega-star can be seen poking his head out of the covers smiling – too cute!

The video had been a long time coming, with fans having theorised for some time now that 'Late Night Talking' would be the next single after the star was spotted on a shoot in central London.

Harry was seen filming in an oversized bed which was being pulled down the roads outside of Buckingham Palace back in February.

Eagle-eyed Stylers also noted that the pyjamas he wears in the music video are the same ones he donned in an episode of CBeebies Bedtime Stories earlier this year  what a well-spotted Easter egg!

Harry Styles' 'Late Night Talking' full lyrics:

Things haven't been quite the same
There's a haze on the horizon, babe
It's only been a couple of days and I miss you, mmm, yeah
When nothing really goes to plan
You stub your toe or break your camera
I'll do everything I can to help you through

If you're feeling down, I just wanna make you happier, baby
Wish I was around, I just wanna make you happier, baby

We've been doin' all this late-night talkin'
'Bout anything you want until the morning
Now you're in my life
I can't get you off my mind

I've never been a fan of change
But I'd follow you to any place
If it's Hollywood or Bishopsgate, I'm coming, too

If you're feeling down, I just wanna make you happier, baby
Wish I was around, I just wanna make you happiеr, baby

We've been doin' all this late-night talkin'
'Bout anything you want until thе morning
Now you're in my life
I can't get you off my mind

Can't get you off my mind
Can't get you off my mind (Can't get you off my mind)
I won't even try (I won't even try)
To get you off my mind (Get you off my mind)

Things haven't been quite the same
There's a haze on the horizon, babe
It's only been a couple of days and I miss you, mmm, yeah
When nothing really goes to plan
You stub your toe or break your camera
I'll do everything I can to help you through

If you're feeling down, I just wanna make you happier, baby
Wish I was around, I just wanna make you happier, baby

We've been doin' all this late-night talkin'
'Bout anything you want until the morning
Now you're in my life
I can't get you off my mind

Can't get you off my mind (All this late-night talking)
Can't get you off my mind (All this late-night talking)
I won't even try (All this late-night talking)
Can't get you off my— (All this late-night talking)
