‘Lights Up’ handles the sheer excess of ‘Harry Styles’ with a lighter touch. It’s an intriguing taster of things to come.

I am enamored with this single. It's just so pretty, and spacey, and really wonderful. I would consider myself a fan of Styles's debut solo album, but I never found a track like this on it.
