Harry Styles gives a surprising sub-aquatic performance in the music video for Falling.
The former One Direction star, 26, performs the ballad from his second solo album, Fine Line, on a grand piano which slowly fills up with water.
The four-minute clip sees him show off his unique style in a ruffled lilac dress and collection of gold rings.
As the song reaches its climax, the room fills with water as light streams though its shuttered windows.
Eventually the water lifts Styles upwards but he continues to sing: “It kills me ’cause I know we’ve run out of things we can say.”
The video is reminiscent of the Watermelon Sugar singer’s sombre performance at the Brit Awards earlier this month, where he sang the track standing in a pool of water.
