One Direction Releases their “Perfect” Single
One Direction released their latest single entitled “Perfect” Friday after releasing teasers for weeks now. It’s their third song off their “Made In The A.M.” album that includes tracks such as “Infinity” and “Drag Me Down”.
Their latest tack, “Perfect” was produced by Julian Bunetta, Jesse Shatkin, and AFTERHRS. It is written by Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson along with Bunetta, Shatkin, Jacob Kasher, John Ryan, and Maureen Anne McDonald.
Some of the lyrics of the song says, “If you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms/If you like having secret little rendez-vous/If you like to do the things you know that we shouldn’t do/Then baby I’m perfect, I’m perfect for you.”
Later on the song, some people interprets that Styles seemed to be directly replying to the songs of Taylor Swift that were rumored to have been written about him on her album 1989. Styles sang towards the end of the song, “If you’re looking for someone to write your break-up songs, baby I’m perfect.”
Although it is the 3rd track they’ve released from their new album, it’s actually only their 2nd single. During an interview with EW earlier this year regarding the album, Bunetta said, “To be honest, I think there are six songs that could be singles on here.”
Zayn Malik, one of the original members of the band, quit the group last March; just a week after they left for the band’s tour. Ever since, Malik has signed with RCA and is continually teasing on an impending solo career in social media.
Since then, the group has carried on as a quartet and they are currently wrapping up their tour with a list of concerts in the U.K. that they announced after their appearance at the Apple Music Festival with a girl group called Little Mix. Their announcement at the Apple Music show was followed by an announcement from Niall Horan that the band will be taking “a well-earned break at some point next year.” Horan’s statement clarified the tabloid rumors that the band is splitting up.
One Direction’s Made in the A.M. album is set to be released on November 13, Friday, which is the same day as Justin Beiber’s release of his Purpose album. This album will be the 5th album for One Direction; and it will be the final release before they are taking a break next year.
