Harry Styles has an uplifting mantra for us all on New Year’s Day: “Treat People With Kindness.”
The 26-year-old glam-rock star dropped a surprise music video the first morning of 2021, which featured him and “Fleabag” actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
His song had a simple message for the new year.
“Maybe we can / Find a place to feel good / And we can treat people with kindness,” the lyrics went.
In the vaudeville style black-and-white video, Styles and Waller-Bridge are dressed in matching argyle sweater vests, paired with bell-bottomed tuxedo pants, naturally.
Waller-Bridge, 35, puts down her martini and joins Styles in a rollicking dance number.

Styles announced the song would be coming just two hours before its release, sending his Twitter followers into a frenzy.
“Hyperventilating,” musician Ashe wrote.
“BEST NEW YEARS GIFT EVER,” tweeted @loadslouve.
The hashtag #TPWK, short for the song’s title, began trending shortly after Styles announced the news.
He wasn’t the only one to get the new year off with a banger. Justin Bieber also dropped a new song and video, “Anyone,” which featured him tattoo-less, smooching actress Zoey Deutch.
