Harry Styles just can’t stop clowning around

The former One Direction star spent a month at circus school to prepare for his new video

Talk about going above and beyond for your art – Harry Styles spent a month at circus school to prepare for his upcoming music video. The new visuals will apparently have the singer performing all kinds of high-flying stunts, and as such Styles has been training at a facility in Kent.

Styles’ first single from upcoming album Harry’s House looks to be headed for its sixth consecutive week at number one, and it seems Styles’ goals for this new video are just as ambitious.

“Harry has spent weeks being taught circus skills for this video — he wanted it to be a real spectacle,” a source told The Sun newspaper. “It is probably his most expensive video yet because as well as all the rehearsals, it was a huge set with loads of extras and really extravagant costumes. He had to really make sure he was strong enough to do the stunts like the tightrope and trapeze, because it requires incredible upper-body and core strength… It’s been a real undertaking and the finished product will prove why he’s one of the biggest pop stars in the world.”

Harry’s House is set to be released on Friday 20 May. Selected tickets for Harry Styles’ UK headline dates are available now here.
