One Direction Debut Their ‘Little Things’

Get your mind out of the gutter. It’s NOT those little things the boys of One Direction are sharing, but rather the lyric video for their new single “Little Things“. Admittedly, I’m closeted (not really, I’m out and proud) One Direction fan, and surprise… I’m already in love with this track. It’s a different side to what we’ve seen previously from the British boy band. It’s a beautiful heartfelt ballad.

Penned by Ed Sheeran, the acoustic track allows for Liam, Niall, Zayn, Louis and Harry to shine. The guitar accompaniment reminds of classic ballads like “More Than Words” by Extreme and “Nobody Knows” by The Tony Rich Project. With a legion of girls fantasizing about these guys, I expect a few of the delusional ones to think this was written specifically with them in mind. LOL.

While I thought the lead track “Live While We’re Young” was a poor man’s “What Makes You Beautiful“, this understated wistful song is a nice change of pace from their usual polished pop sound. Check out the 8mm-inpsired lyric video below. Warning, it might make you feel dizzy if you are susceptible to that sort of thing. I wish they had gone for more of a romantic creative for the clip.
