Styles, 28, is an outspoken Joni Mitchell devotee and has borrowed his album title from the 1975 Joni Mitchell track, Harry’s House/Centrepiece, which appears on her album The Hissing of Summer Lawns.

In 2019, Styles told Rolling Stone that he “was in a big Joni hole”, while recording his sophomore album, Fine Line. The singer was so enamoured with her 1971 album, Blue, that he tracked down the woman who built Mitchell’s dulcimers in the 1960s and commissioned her to build replicas, which he used on Canyon Moon, from Fine Line.

Joni Mitchell, 78, gave Styles her full approval, retweeting the album announcement with, “love the title”. The singer has been heavily influenced by 70s California rock on previous albums, citing Van Morrison as well as Crosby, Stills, and Nash as influences.

In 2020, Stevie Nicks told Vogue of her and Styles’ close friendship, stating that they’re both “old school, but still modern”. “He’s the type of person you’d wanna live next door to. He’d look out the window, see you having a hard time planting flowers, and rush out asking, ‘Can I help you with those roses? ‘Sure, but you are Harry Styles, right?’ That’s who he is.”

Styles performed Fleetwood Mac’s The Chain every night of his first solo tour, hammering home his deep love for the rock ‘n’ roll of yesteryear.

Can we expect more modern takes on classic rock luminaries on Styles’ upcoming album? Impossible to say, but we’re sure it’ll be crafted with care and love.
