3 New Albums Out This Week You Should Listen to Now: Harry Styles, Porridge Radio, and mxmtoon
This week we’re highlighting new music from Harry Styles, Porridge Radio, and mxmtoon.
Harry Styles – Harry’s House
The English singer/songwriter is back with his third solo album, Harry’s House. The house in question isn’t necessarily a physical place but a state of mind. “Imagine it’s a day in my house, a day in my mind,” he said. “What do I go through? I’m playing fun music. I’m playing sad music. I have doubts. I’m feeling stuff.” Much of the album’s songs were recorded with a handful of close friends and collaborators. On the album, Styles explores an upbeat and intimate form of pop music that bumps up against a more electronic sound.
Standout Songs: Late Night Talking, As It Was, Daylight, Matilda, Cinema, Keep Driving, Boyfriends

Waterslide, Diving Board, Ladder to the Sky is the third full-length album from the Brighton quartet.
