Gift of the Day: Harry Styles on Vinyl

Pearl-wearing scamp Harry Styles had a major year in 2019. He hosted SNL, made wide-leg pants a thing, did a lot of mushrooms, rescued a fish, and released his second album. Fine Line, which came out earlier in December, is a druggier, sexier continuation of the Mick Jagger–inspired solo career Styles kicked off with Harry Styles in 2017. Poppy singles like “Adore You” and “Lights Up” give way to a psychedelic pop exploration of broken relationships, jealousy, and sex. It’s compulsively listenable even if you were never a die-hard One Direction fan.

Given that Styles is leaning heavily into some ’70s California vibes, the best way to give someone the album as a gift is probably on vinyl. Beyond just the music, the gorgeously shot Tim Walker cover is Bowie-esque aesthetic perfection — a perfect addition to any home. And if that’s not convincing enough, the vinyl includes a foldout of more of Walker’s stunning naked photos of Styles, including a huge poster. Horny for Harry has been our 2019 motto, so why not share the joy this holiday season?

Sure, it’s last-minute, but if you buy it today and choose rush shipping, Urban Outfitters can get it to someone you love by Christmas.
