"Late Night Talking" is a song by English singer Harry Styles. The song was released to US pop radio as the second single from his third studio album Harry's House on 21 June 2022.

Background

On 1 April 2022, Styles released the lead single "As It Was" to critical acclaim and commercial success. The song was debuted during his Coachella performance. He also performed "Boyfriends", another unreleased track off of Harry's House.[5]

Composition

"Late Night Talking" was described as a "glossy R&B shifter" that fills "every available space with some or other moving part, right down to vocal parts mimicking brass".[6]

Music video

The video, directed by Bradley and Pablo and released on 13 July 2022.,[7] finds Styles following a portal in his own bed that leads him to an array of other beds — one in an art gallery, another in a restaurant, a theatre, and another that speeds through the streets of London past Buckingham Palace. The clip also comes complete with a pillow fight and Styles officiating a bed-ridden wedding, before falling through the sky on his bed.
