Introducing HAIRY Styles! Shirtless Harry swaps his clean-shaven look for a giant beard in new video for Music For A Sushi Restaurant
Harry Styles has swapped his famously clean-shaven look for a giant beard in stills taken from his new music video for Music For A Sushi Restaurant.
The singer, 28, was certainly sporting a more rugged look than his devoted fans are used to as he lay shirtless and sweating while in a professional kitchen.
The single – which premieres on Thursday afternoon – has already racked up thousands of views in an official teaser clip on YouTube.

Harry recently spoke to NPR’s Leila Fadel about the meaning behind the song.
He said: ‘I was in a sushi restaurant in Los Angeles with my producer and one of our songs came on from the last album’ noting that he thought it was a strange thing to hear in a sushi restaurant.
He continued: ‘And then I was like – that would be a really fun album title, but then as the song started being made I kind of just set on Music for a Sushi Restaurant.
Leila said: ‘So the next time you’re in a sushi restaurant and this is playing you’ll be like “It fits”,’

Harry said: ‘I’ll be like – this is everything I’ve ever wanted.’
The new video comes after it was claimed Harry and Florence Pugh shared an offscreen kiss after developing ‘instant chemistry’ on the set of Don’t Worry Darling – weeks before the One Direction star began a relationship with his married director, Olivia Wilde.
The beleaguered film, in which Styles and Pugh play a married couple, has been overshadowed by a series of controversies both before and after its memorably awkward premiere at the Venice Film Festival in September.
Claims: Harry and Florence Pugh reportedly shared an offscreen kiss after developing ‘instant chemistry’ on the set of Don’t Worry Darling – weeks before the One Direction star began a relationship with his married director, Olivia Wilde
Notably, Pugh failed to acknowledge Wilde on the red carpet following an on-set dispute – thought to be sparked by the actress’s discomfort at her director embarking on a very public relationship with Styles while shooting the film on location in Los Angeles.
And sources claim their fall-out stems from the initial chemistry shared by Pugh and her screen husband before he became romantically involved with Wilde.
An insider told The Sun: ‘Harry and Florence had chemistry from the off, which translated incredibly well on-screen. One night they had a bit of a snog, all very light-hearted and a bit of fun, and that was that.

‘It was being gossiped about by a couple of members of production, otherwise no one would have known. Harry was very much single at the time and Florence had separated from Zach Braff, although she’d kept the split quiet to — ironically — avoid headlines.
‘There was no cheating or misconduct from anyone. However, later on, Harry and Olivia started spending more time together — sneaking off for coffees, hanging out in each other’s trailers, and sharing small, routine intimacies.’
The insider added that it was clear Harry and Olivia had a real connection and Florence was reportedly unhappy when photos of them holding hands surfaced.
There was already said to be tension between the two women, with Harry and Olivia’s burgeoning romance making things worse.
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Styles, Pugh and Wilde for comment.
