Perhaps you’re used to the pop sounds of “What Makes You Beautiful” or “Live While We’re Young,” but with the latest single from One Direction, the guys strip everything away except a guitar and harmonies.
The guys released a new single called “Little Things” that might make non-believers suddenly believe in their talent.
The single starts off with nothing more than a guitar playing softly while Zayn Malik sings, “Your hand fits in mine, like it’s made just for me. But bear this in mind, it was meant to be.”
After the first verse the rest of the guys join in singing the chorus in harmony, with no massive production to back them up. This is quite a different sound from the band, in fact so different it moved some fans to tears.
I’m not crying there’s just some Little Things in my eye

Little Things is basically everything a girl wants to hear from a guy. Thank you Ed Sheeran. One Direction is the reason of my tears.

The song was written by fellow British heartthrob Ed Sheeran whom is very proud of the tune.
In a recent interview with MTV News, he said, “It’s got one of my favorite lines that I’ve ever written in a song. ‘I know you never like the sound of your voice on tape and you never like to know how much you weigh and you still have to squeeze into your jeans, but you’re perfect to me.'”
Some fans wondered how Sheeran could write a song like this at 17 when some of their peers can’t seem to update their Facebook status properly.
How did Ed Sheeran write Little Things when he was 17 years old? The 17 year old boys in my town cant even write a decent facebook status.
