Sometimes it really dawns on me the reality that Harry held onto a song he wrote 2-3 years ago 'cause he didn't feel like anyone else singing it would do it justice. It meant so much to him to have it and sing it, and now it's in his solo album. And then I remember that when he had the opportunity to release music on his own, to really say what he means, the first thing he writes is Sweet Creature ...which is about Louis. I wanna cry.
You’re so right.
I was trying to find a post I’d written about the timing of Sweet Creature. It was written in February, 2016, just after Harry’s birthday, before the end of the month. Anyway, I can’t find the post right now, but the timing is very interesting.
It was right after Freddie was “born.”
Sweet Creature is a song of reconciliation, the musical equivalent of an embrace, the first song written that Harry felt sure he wanted on the album.
Here’s a post that links it to Two Ghosts, still a great read.
