While we’re still waiting for the release of 1D’s new single ‘Little Things’, songwriter Ed Sheeran is busy revealing some juicy gossip about the song!
The ‘You Need Me, I Don’t Need You’ star revealed that he actually wrote the song when he was 17! He said:
“The great thing about it is I wrote that song with a girl called Fiona Bevan when I was 17 and we lost the song. I’ve kept in touch with Fiona, we’ve done gigs and stuff and about two months ago she sent me the tune and was like ‘oh, do you remember this?”
Ed then went on to say:
“I was like ‘Yeah, I do remember that’, and I was in the studio with the One Direction boys at the time and I was playing it and they were like ‘we really like that’.”
He also admitted that the song has some of his favourite lyrics ever:
“’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’.”
Ed also dished the dirt on the songs meaning: “It was written about all the best things about someone, kind of like the things you wouldn’t expect.”
But, he wasn’t the only one giving us little clues about the song, the 1D boys also took to twitter to reveal:
“SNEAK PEAK of #LittleThings Your hand fits in mine like it’s made just for me… Any ideas on the next line!? 1DHQ”
Ed has revealed that the song is more “acoustic led” and “more of a ballad” than what we’re used to hearing from One Direction…we look forward to hearing it!
Although, I don’t know if we can wait much longer, the suspense is killing us!
Are you as excited as we are?
