"As It Was" is a song by English singer-songwriter Harry Styles, released through Erskine and Columbia on 1 April 2022 as the lead single from his third studio album, Harry's House (2022). The song was written by Styles alongside his producers Kid Harpoon and Tyler Johnson.

"As It Was" was widely acclaimed by music critics and entered at the top of the UK Singles Chart, becoming Styles' second solo number-one single, his first being "Sign of the Times" in April 2017. "As It Was" spent ten weeks at the top of the UK Singles Chart, becoming the longest-running number-one and best-selling single of 2022 in his home country. In the United States, it was his second chart topper on the Billboard Hot 100, where it spent 15 non-consecutive weeks at number one, becoming the longest-running US number one by a UK act and the fourth-longest-running number one in the chart's history.

"As It Was" was the best-selling global single of 2022, earning 2.28 billion subscription streams equivalents globally according to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI). Outside the UK and US, the song was a huge commercial success and topped the charts in 45 countries, including Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Lithuania, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Singapore, Sweden, and Norway.

Background[edit]

Harry Styles announced the title of his third studio album as Harry's House on 23 March 2022, unveiling its artwork, a 40-second trailer, and the album's release date as 20 May 2022.[1][2] Five days later, he announced the title of its lead single as "As It Was", alongside 3 pictures of Styles facing away from the camera in a sequinned, sleeveless red outfit, and set its release date as 1 April 2022.[3][4][5] Simultaneously, posters bearing the lyrics "It's not the same As It Was" and a picture of Styles sitting on a big ball appeared in various cities.[6] He released a teaser of the music video on 30 March, which included an "energetic drum beat" and a "sunny electric guitar riff", and depicted him in a red jumpsuit spinning in circles atop a motorised turntable.[7]

In an interview with Billboard, Kid Harpoon revealed Styles pushed for the track to become the lead single for the album campaign, stating: "It was Harry that pushed that through. He was like, ‘This is the one. I’m telling you.’ But everyone was like, ‘It should be this other one.’"[8]

Lyric and composition[edit]

As It Was was the last song written for Styles' third album, Harry's House.[9] The song was recorded at Sony Music Entertainment CEO Rob Stringer’s house in England. In an interview with Consequence of Sound, producer Kid Harpoon stated "We moved all the furniture out and put a drum kit in the TV room. “As It Was” was done in that setup. Harry came in with a riff idea, and we ran with it."[10] In an interview with Hits Radio Styles said the song was originally written slower before adding synths and drums.[11] He called the original voice note of the slower track "a death march" in an interview with Zane Lowe[12] although the existence of this version has been disputed by Kid Harpoon.[13] Speaking to Music Week, producer Tyler Johnson stated the track was almost completed in its final form after three or four days[14] with the bridge of the song being written a few days later.[15]

Johnson described the process of writing the single as: “Harry was sitting on the Moog One and I liked what he was playing, so I sat down and played as he started to write the melodies and the lyrics. I said to Harry, ‘We need a lead line’ and he just came up right away with the ‘Dah, dah, dah...’ part. He didn't hesitate. Then he started writing the second verse and referring to himself in the third person. So much of this song just came from Harry's heart. And then Tom, with this magical sense of hooks that he has, came up with the idea of doing, ‘You know it's not the same…’ after the chorus, which I was very impressed with. That turned out to be a very smart move.”[14] Styles came up with the idea and melody of the tubular bells included on the track, and plays them on the finished product.[16]

The child's voice which opens the track is Styles' godchild Ruby Winston, daughter of producer Ben Winston. Styles explained the addition in an interview with Capital Breakfast: "She used to try and call me before bedtime every night, and one time it didn’t ring or something, so they sent me that. I dug it out when we were in the studio and put it in front of the song for some reason, and I kind of just fell in love with it, so it stuck."[17]

Styles described the meaning of the song as "about metamorphosis, embracing change and former self, perspective shift and all that kind of stuff. It just felt like the thing I wanted to say, the thing I wanted to be doing and the kind of music I wanted to make coming back."[18]

Music critics described the song as a guitar-driven synth-pop and new wave track, a noticeable shift from Styles's rock-oriented sounds.[19][20][21][22][23] Chris Willman of Variety noted it takes heavy inspiration from Depeche Mode and A-ha, while also suggesting it adopted a style similar to the Weeknd's 2019 single "Blinding Lights".[20] EUPHORIA magazine felt that Styles was inspired by James Bay's 2018 single "Pink Lemonade", adding that the two songs sound "eerily similar".[24] Lyrically, "As It Was" is rooted in personal transitions and depicts a feeling of loss and loneliness.[25]

"As It Was" received critical acclaim. NME's Rhian Daly gave the song five out of five stars, describing it as "not a million miles away from where Fine Line left off, but hardly retreading old ground." According to Daly, the track suggests Harry's House will solidify Styles "as one of the current pop landscapes' greats".[27] Beau Beaumont-Thomas of The Guardian also rated the song five stars and called it "one of his very best", writing, "Many will pore over the gossipy, self-referential lyrics, but Styles's song is for everyone: an effervescent, high-tempo hit to have you clicking your heels."[26] In his review for Rolling Stone, Rob Sheffield regarded "As It Was" as one of Styles's most "emotionally powerful" songs, calling it a "daring change-up" and a "straight-from-the-heart cry that's also an irresistible dance-floor challenge."[21] Sahar Ghadirian of Clash magazine deemed it a "powerhouse" and Styles "at his most vulnerable". Ghadirian appreciated the "dream fusion" of synth-pop with electro rock and commented that the bells end the song on "a euphoric high".[28] Thania Garcia of Variety magazine described the song as being "new wave-inspired".[29]

Evening Standard reviewer Jochan Embley meanwhile found the track inferior to the singer's previous singles "Watermelon Sugar" and "Adore You", but wrote that Styles and his collaborators "still know how to make an instantly enjoyable tune".[30] Olivia Horn of Pitchfork was less impressed and bemoaned that the song "winds down without any real payoff", citing the circuitousness of the lyrics as "a frequent shortcoming in Styles' songwriting."[31]

Entertainment Weekly named "As It Was" as the best song of 2022: "The synths gallop like excitable ponies while his warm-wash vocals swoop and dip, a sweet little slice of life-support disco for the lonely."[32] USA Today also chose it as the best song of the year: "At first, it sounds like a generically pretty pop song. But then you understand Styles' longing for the perfect something that was yanked away, his dreamy vocals taking on a sadness as he recalls that blissful bubble and resigns himself with a sigh to his current reality. The giggly opening by his goddaughter, pillowy '80s-rooted synths, tubular bells and urging beat contradict his pensiveness."[33] Billboard ranked it at number 3 on their "The 100 Best Songs of 2022" list: "Coming in at a lean 2:47, "As It Was" serves as a broader anthem about how nothing is "the same as it was" before the pandemic, but on a micro level, it turns out Styles isn't the same either as he grapples with fame and the realization that "he's no good alone" when left to his own devices and pills."[34]

BBC ranked it at number 3 on their "25 of the best songs released in 2022" list: "As It Was is a vapour trail of a song, silvery and airborne, as Harry Styles searches for meaning amidst break-ups and loneliness and personal turmoil."[35] NME ranked it at number 3 on their "The 50 best songs of 2022" list: "It's hard not to tumble into the vast emotional depths of 'As It Was' and look beyond everything else that made this song such a triumph. Change is a constant beneath the track's heart-raising BPM and twinkling melodies: here, Harry Styles' empathetic songwriting saw him fight for stability amid breakups and personal upheavals, finding strength in a renewed relationship with himself."[36] The Guardian ranked it at number 5 on their "The 20 best songs of 2022" list: "Occupying the slim valley between A-ha's Take On Me and Vampire Weekend, As It Was delivers bruised-peach hurt, sophisticated languor from the back seat of a tastefully expensive car. He can sing something as vague as "In this world, it's just us / You know it's not the same as it was" and make you feel that he really means it"[37] i-D ranked it at number 10 on their "The 100 best songs of 2022" list: "For an artist reckoning with blinding attention towards his public persona, this infectious, upbeat song about loneliness and change felt like a balm both for the artist and his fans."[38]

NPR ranked it at number 12 on their "100 Best Songs Of 2022" list: "Like a fling who would have never dated you in real life saying arrivederci at summer's end, this song is by turns forlorn, resigned, apologetic and a little caddish. Its slippery nostalgia is grounded in a synth line evoking the New Romantic era of Styles' parents' youth and in the singer's cool, bossa nova-ish croon, which sounds like the way it feels when that departing lover wistfully strokes your hair. The Easter-eggy verses matter to fans, but the chorus is what made "As It Was" so sticky in 2022: It renders regret comfortable, a service everyone needs in a time of chronic heartbreak."[39] Complex ranked it at number 27 on their "50 Best Songs of 2022" list: ""As It Was" is a beautiful, mesmerizing record that lives up to all the buzz it's generated on TikTok (and everywhere else on the internet and radio). It carries an energetic tone thanks to the uptempo instrumentation, and Harry Styles adds layers of emotion with his soft vocals. "As It Was" is a fun and danceable record that continues to demonstrate his power as one of the biggest pop stars in the world."[40] Paste ranked it at number 29 on their "The 50 Best Songs of 2022" list: "Our first glimpse into Harry Styles' newest era, where he is fully immersed in his own flamboyant intricacies, the song is a thoughtful rumination on the exhaustion that stems from not enough love and too much fame."[41]

The Fader ranked it at number 33 on their "The 100 best songs of 2022" list: "On Harry's House lead single "As It Was," the singer hits an effervescent pitch both sonically and conceptually, expressing a willingness to embrace introspection while delivering one of the most textured performances in his loaded discography."[42] Pitchfork ranked it at number 100 on their "The 100 Best Songs of 2022" list: ""As It Was" is the kind of twinkly little confection that would easily get the indie kids pogoing at any local DIY dance night at any point in the last two decades. It just happens to have been recorded by one of the biggest pop stars in the world in 2022 instead of, say, the Strokes twenty years earlier. "You know it's not the same as it was," Harry Styles sighs, giving a nod to the easy bait of nostalgia. A pointillist synth line tap dances through the song, and all over that nagging pandemic-era malaise we're all desperately trying to shake. Resistance is futile."[43]

Associated Press placed it on their "Top Songs of 2022" list: "The song is deceptively upbeat with a jingly synth-pop beat and a little kid's voice as the intro and wedding bells at the end. But the lyrics are self-referentially melancholic as he accepts the reality of change that even he is not quite ready for."[44] Esquire placed it on their "The 45 Best Songs of 2022" list: ""As It Was" was Harry Styles first single this year, and it did not disappoint. This glittering track fuels nostalgia as Styles sings about life which is, of course, always changing. (Reality bites!)"[45]

Recognition[edit]

As It Was was praised by many musicians and those within the entertainment industry. Sir Elton John declared the track as "one of the great records of the year" and that it should win Song of The Year at The Grammys.[46] Lindsay Buckingham praised the song as "a great pop song" in discussion with Omar Apollo.[47] Jon Bon Jovi stated "It is not going to be the same as it was folks, I love that because he gave you a slap upside the head and said, “I’m here with you but doing it on my terms.”[48] Artists such as Jorja Smith and Arcade Fire also covered the song in the Live Lounge.[49][50]

The music video references a photo mural of industrial designers Charles and Ray Eames on exhibit at LACMA as Styles and his love interest grow further apart.[100] It will be a music video I will never forget and now I can happily retire.".[97] On YouTube, the video has received over 725 million views and 8 million likes as of May 2024.[101] Styles later released a Behind The Scenes version of the making of the music video.[102]

Live performance[edit]

Styles performed "As It Was" for the first time at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on 15 April and 22 April 2022.[128] At the 'One Night Only' performance for Harry's House, Styles surprised the crowd at Madison Square Garden with an encore of the track. Speaking on the experience to Rolling Stone, Styles stated: "We came offstage, and I went into my dressing room and just wanted to sit by myself for a minute, After One Direction, I didn’t expect to ever experience anything new. I kind of felt like, ‘All right, I’ve seen how crazy it can get and I think there was something about it where I was … not terrified, but I just needed a minute. Because I wasn’t sure what it was. Just that the energy felt insane.”[129]

Styles performed As It Was at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards with a rotating stage and routine choreographed in the style of the music video by Yoann Bourgeois.[130] However, a technical malfunction caused the stage to rotate the wrong way and forced the dancers with Styles to perform the dance in reverse.[131] Dancers included in the routine stated "there was nothing we could do to stop it" once the performance began.[132] Styles "called the team in charge to make sure they were OK" after the performance according to Grammys set designer Julio Himede.[131]
