It’s almost time. Harry Styles will release his self-titled solo debut album this Friday, May 12. In anticipation for the big day, Styles went on The Today Show, this morning, to play a mini-concert for thousands of fans in Rockefeller Center and premiere a new song from the album, “Carolina.”

The new track (about a girl named Carolina if you hadn’t guessed) is a plucky guitar stomper with more sing-along melodies and catchier hooks than anything we’ve heard from Styles thus far. If the incessant drumbeats and “la la la”’s don’t get stuck in your head immediately, nothing will. If you’re wondering who Carolina is, Harry doesn’t really know either—he only met her once, but that was all it took to create this instantly memorable tune.

The musician also announced that he collaborated with Apple Music to create a documentary entitled Harry Styles: Behind the Album, premiering on the platform next Monday, May 15. It promises to take you inside the in-depth creative process of his debut album and the moments that led up to it, with exclusive footage shot in Jamaica, Los Angeles, and his home of London. The doc will also feature Harry and his band performing songs from the album at the historic Abbey Road Studios. Watch the trailer below.
