Harry Styles explains meaning behind Golden on Fine Line
The way this Fine Line theory connects the album art to 'Adore You' and to 'Golden'. Harry Styles did THAT!
Yesterday (Oct 26), Harry Styles released his highly-anticipated 'Golden' music video. The new visual is the last instalment of the Fine Line era and it sees Harry running around the coast of Italy in an array of gorgeous looks. Discussing 'Golden' with AP, Harry explained: "It’s always been a source of joy for me. And I wanted to make a video that encapsulated that."
Naturally, fans are living for the music video, and they've now come up with a Fine Line theory that will blow your mind.
The theory is that we, the fans, are the 'Adore You' fish. Eagle-eyed fans have noticed that there are several 'Golden' scenes in which Harry is staring into the water and the camera is placed as though we the viewer are in the water and he is looking at us and vice versa. If that weren't enough, the scenes are filmed with a fisheye lens giving us the literal view of a fish.
That's not all either. The Fine Line album art is photographed with a fisheye lens and, on top of that, all of the music videos in the Fine Line era heavily feature water. So even, if the fisheye lens isn't present in 'Lights Up', 'Falling' and 'Watermelon Sugar', we, the fish, are still near him. In other words, the 'Adore You' fish love story is about Harry's love for his fans.
One fan tweeted: "GUYS WERE THE FISH. THATS WHY THE ALBUM IS IN FISH EYE VIEW AND THATS WHY IN THE ADORE YOU MUSIC WE GOT BIGGER AND BIGGER UNTIL HE HAD TO LET S GO. WE HELPED HIM BE HIMSELF AND ACCEPT WHO HE IS AND HE HELPED US GROW AND BE OUR BEST SELVES. WERE THE FISH AND THE HAND."
Another added: "THE FISHEYE LENSE, HIM REACHING TO GRAB IT- WE ARE THE FISH".

We are the fish. The album cover is a fish eye because we are the fish. In adore you the fish saves him because we saved him. In golden he talks to the fish in the water because he is talking to us. #Golden #HarryStyles #YouAreSoGolden #WeAreGolden #YoureSoGolden @Harry_Styles pic.twitter.com/N3Tt0FZ6zh— jojo ♡’s lauren🧃, the whores ™️ (@newangeljo) October 26, 2020

So Harry is singing "just let me adore you" and "you're so golden" to us? No. I'm not crying. You are.
