Two days after covering Little Big Town‘s “Girl Crush” at a live show at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, ex-member of British boy band One Direction, Harry Styles, has released a studio version of the Nashville hit.

Styles’ team announced the studio release on Sept. 27, via Facebook, having been recorded at London’s Metropolis Studios and released as a Spotify Single, from Erskine Records Limited, under exclusive license to Columbia Records, a division of Sony Music Entertainment.

Written by Hillary Lindsey, Liz Rose and Lori McKenna, “Girl Crush” was originally released by Capitol Nashville quartet Little Big Town on their 2014 effort, Pain Killer. The breakout single has gone on to win MusicRow‘s 2015 Song of the Year honor, followed by CMA’s Song and Single of the Year that same year and 2016 Grammys for Best Country Duo/Group Performance and Best Country Song.
