Harry Styles and Florence Pugh are showing off their musical chops and have teamed up to release a song from their new film Don’t Worry Darling.
The song, titled With You All the Time, features the former One Direction singer, 28, on piano, while Florence, 26, sings lead vocals.
Having decided not to use their own names, With You All the Time is credited to Harry and Florence’s characters from the movie, Jack and Alice.
The song was teased last month when the film’s director, Olivia Wilde, told reporters that Harry had contacted her to let her know he was working on new music.
The song features Florence on vocals as she sings the line, ‘Darling, I’m with you all the time. Can’t you see I long to be with you all the time?’
The sparse piano line played by Harry is sometimes played in reverse, while Florence’s vocal lines are given similar treatment at various moments.
Olivia said: ‘In prep, Harry called me and said, “What’s the trigger song? Like, what’s the melody?” I said, “I don’t know. I’m going to different writers to write it. Do you have anything in mind?” And he said, “I’ll think about it.”‘
Speaking to Variety, she added: ‘He sent me a demo from his piano, and it was what ended up in the film. He called me and said, “What about this?”‘
Harry said of the song: ‘I wanted something that could be both sweet and creepy, entirely dependent on the context.
‘I remember first playing it on the piano, and it had a sort of homemade nursery
rhyme feel to it. Applied to the different moments in the film, I think it takes on a couple of different lives – I hope.’
The film follows Harry and Florence’s characters, who are a young and happy couple living a pleasant life in California in the 1950s.
However, the town they live in is revealed to be the creation of the company for which Jack works – and the truth unravels and soon begins to overwhelm Alice.
Meanwhile, behind-the-scenes, the film’s production and promotional cycles have both been shrouded in controversy, with reported firings and cast conflicts dominating the headlines.
Don’t Worry Darlings is in cinemas now.
