One Direction Drop ‘Perfect’ EP With New Track, ‘Home’
One Direction released their Perfect EP last night (October 21). The release, which whets fan's appetites for what's to come on their Made In the A.M. album, includes a new track called "Home." Where "Perfect" is a tongue-in-cheek frolic that's rumored to touch on Harry Styles' relationship with Taylor Swift (and bears a melodic resemblance to Taylor's "Style"), "Home" is a heartfelt ballad that's ready to soundtrack a thousand budding relationships. "When you're lost, you'll find a way / I'll be your light, You'll never feel like you're alone / I'll make this feel like home," the boys collectively insist on the chorus.
The release is a salve for fans, particularly disappointed ticket-holders for the Belfast concert the group had to cancel after Liam Payne fell ill. Fortunately, he's recovered and the rescheduled show will go on.
In addition to "Home" and the title track, two remixes round out the EP, because who doesn't need more 1D up in this club? Norwegian tropical-house producer Matoma turns "Perfect" into a breezy bop that's as smooth and sweet as a piña colada, and band-member Liam Payne channels his "Big Payno" alter ego to inject a "Drag Me Down" trap edit with a heavy dose of bass. The track features rapper Lunchmoney Lewis, who's best known for his work on Nicki Minaj's "Trini Dem Girls" on The Pinkprint.
Listen to "Home" below, and expect Made In the A.M. on November 13.
