Listen to One Direction’s Ed Sheeran-penned track “Little Things.”
One Direction have dominated everything — our hearts, our televisions, our minds, our souls, our radios, our internet(s), and we totally get why: Every single song they release is a lovingly crafted piece of pop perfection primed for Billboard chart domination! Now, take any of of 1D’s radio hits, multiply it by 10, and THEN you’ll have “Little Things,” the British boy band’s latest (and grrreatest) track, written by Ed Sheeran.

Ed Sheeran is best known for writing gorgeous, acoustic, singer-songwriter-esque melodies (remember that one time he duetted with Taylor Swift and that song they cowrote?), so it’s fitting that he’d encourage 1D to swap their signature club-ready vibe for a slow, steady acoustic ballad. A guitar-driven song, “Little Things” features the boys’ lush harmonies followed by some poignant lyrics: “I won’t let these little things/ Slip out of my mouth/ But if I do/ It’s you/ Oh it’s you/ They add up to/ I’m in love with you.” #SWOONSVILLE. If you were still on the fence about going to see 1d on their upcoming tour, we bet you’re probably signing into Ticketmaster RIGHT now, plastic in hand. Because are you really gonna miss your chance to hear a pack of smooth, smart Brits singing the line “I’m in love with you” live?? No, no you are not.
