Harry Styles has dropped a heartstring-pulling music video for his single Satellite and fans are in bits. The emotional production is being compared to 2008's Pixar animation Wall-E, based on a robot finding a connection with the help of the star.

The video for his fourth single from 2022 album, Harry's House, has struck chords with fans who have been moved to tears. Based on a lonely robot called Stomper (named after Harry's Satellite Stomp dance move), the story focusses on the search for connection in the universe and sees the small robot travelling across the country trying to reach its long-lost lover, NASA's Curiosity rover.

"It has spent over 10 lonely years roaming the surface of the red planet," a voiceover narrated by Brian Cox says.

Harry sings: “You got a new life / Am I bothering you? / Do you wanna talk?.

The chorus hears him belt out: “Spinning out, waiting for ya to pull me in / I can see you're lonely down there / Don't you know that I am right here?."

One fan commented: "I'm so happy to live in the same time as Harry. He is literally a gift for this world and makes it to a better place. Can't imagine how much he means to how many people."

A second added: "This isn’t a typical 'sad' music video but the intensity of emotions it portrays is remarkable."

A third praised: "Didn't expected this kind of video for this song but Harry never disappoints. He really is a great artist and I love what he brings to the table."

"I love how he conveyed this story. Listening to this song will never be the same again," wrote a fan.

Styles told Rolling Stone last year about performing: “It’s really unnatural to stand in front of that many people and have that experience. Washing it off, you’re just a naked person, in your most vulnerable, human form.”

He added: “After One Direction, I didn’t expect to ever experience anything new. I kind of felt like, ‘All right, I’ve seen how crazy it can get.’ And I think there was something about it where I was … not terrified, but I just needed a minute. Because I wasn’t sure what it was. Just that the energy felt insane.”

Taking home the BRIT Award for album of the year, he said: "I want to thank my mum for signing me up for X Factor without telling me, so I literally wouldn't be here without you. I want to thank Niall, Louis, Liam and Zayn because I wouldn't be here without you either. Thank you so much."
