Before jumping into Watermelon Sugar, the former One Direction member explained the inspiration behind the song, first noting the title derives from the book In Watermelon Sugar by Richard Brautigan. Rocking his grandma-esque pale blue sweater featuring a chicken, he elaborated:

“It’s probably the longest it’s ever taken me to finish a song. We kind of liked it when we first had it, but I really hated it for a long time and it kept coming back into the mix.”

As for the story behind it, he shared:

“It’s kind of about, like, that initial, I guess, euphoria of, like, when you start seeing someone, you first start sleeping with someone or just, like, being around someone and you have that kind of excitement about.”

And as for Adore You, it stems from a similar feeling of “initial excitement” when you first start seeing someone new:

“It’s about a fish. And uh, I just had this fish and I just really liked it. And that’s kinda the whole story behind the song. I guess it’s kinda similar in the baseline to Watermelon Sugar in terms of just being about that initial excitement of just meeting someone and you’re like ‘take me!’ But, uh, yeah this is ‘Adore You.’ I’m gonna regret that one.”

And everyone was loving the welcome distraction from the craziness going on in the world! Here are a few of the best reactions from Twitter users:

“harry styles tiny desk is exactly what i needed today ?”

“the timing of this tiny desk is??? (and i haven’t even watched. i’m just glad it exists in the world)”

“In these trying times I really needed a Harry Styles Tiny Desk and npr knew that”

“My “work from home” playlist will now only consist of the @harry_styles tiny desk session @nprmusic ?”

“If anyone needs a silver lining during this difficult time, Harry Styles once again has blessed us today with his NPR tiny desk concert. Ty Harry for this gift and uplifting”
