"Treat People With Kindness" is a song performed by Harry Styles. It serves as the eleventh track from Harry's album, Fine Line. It was released as a promotional single on January 1, 2021.

Background[]

Styles teased the song on his self-titled debut world tour, using the slogan "TPWK", on a badge on his guitar and on tour merchandise, including Pride t-shirts sold to raise funds for GLSEN.[1][2] This gave Styles the idea of writing a song to go with the slogan titled "Treat People with Kindness", which is the eleventh track on his second studio album, Fine Line.[3]

In October 2019, teaser posters including the phrase "Do you know who you are?" and the acronym "TPWK" were spotted in London, Tokyo, Los Angeles, New York and Australia, connecting them to Harry and his new album release due to the reference to his "Treat People with Kindness" motto.[4][5]

Images of the music video were leaked during the last week of 2020.

Music and composition[]

Harry Styles, via Rolling Stone:

“This up-with-people singalong doesn’t sound like anything else on the album. It began after the slogan was featured prominently on Styles’ first solo tour: “I told Jeff, I would love to someday write a song called ‘Treat People With Kindness.’ And he was like, ‘Why don’t you just do it?’ It made me uncomfortable at first, because I wasn’t sure what it was — but then I wanted to lean into that. I feel like that song opened something that’s been in my core.”[6]

Critical Reception[]

The A.V. Club opined:

“Kaleidoscopic vocals, courtesy of Lucius and a gospel choir, propel “Treat People With Kindness,” which has a strong ’70s musical theater vibe.”[7]

Lyrics[]

[Intro]
Maybe, we can
Find a place to feel good
And we can treat people with kindness
Find a place to feel good

[Verse 1]
I've got a good feeling
I'm just takin' it all in
Floating up and dreamin'
Droppin' into the deep end

[Pre-Chorus]
And if we're here long enough
They'll sing a song for us
And we'll belong

[Chorus]
Maybe, we can
Find a place to feel good
And we can treat people with kindness
Find a place to feel good

[Verse 2]
Giving second chances
I don't need all the answers
Feeling good in my skin
I just keep on dancin'

[Pre-Chorus]
And if we're here long enough
We'll see it's all for us
And we'll belong

[Chorus]
Maybe, we can
Find a place to feel good
And we can treat people with kindness
Find a place to feel good

[Bridge]
And it's just another day (And it's just another day)
And if our friends all pass away (Oh-oh, oh-oh)
It's okay (It's okay, it's okay)
It's okay (It's okay, it's okay, yeah)
Hey!
Here we go now

[Chorus]
Maybe, we can
Find a place to feel good
And we can treat people with kindness
Find a place to feel good

[Outro]
All we ever want is automatic all the time
All we ever want is auto, auto all of the time
All we ever want is automatic all the time
All we ever want is auto, auto all of the time
Maybe, we can (All together now, one more time)
Find a place to feel good (Oh yeah)
And we can treat people with kindness (Just a little bit of kindness)
Find a place to feel good (Ow)
