One Direction Releases New Single "Perfect"
One Direction released their new single, “Perfect,” on Friday after teasing the song for weeks. It’s the third track off the group’s fifth album, Made in the A.M., which also includes “Drag Me Down” and “Infinity.”
With lyrics like, “If you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms / If you like having secret rendezvous / If you like to do the things you know we shouldn’t do/ Baby I’m perfect for you,” and “If you like flashing cameras every time we go out / If you’re looking for someone to write your breakup songs about / Baby we’re perfect,” it’s a cheeky play on dating and the band’s massive fame.
“Perfect” was produced by Julian Bunetta, Jesse Shatkin and AFTERHRS, and written by Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson with Bunetta, Shatkin, Jacob Kasher, John Ryan, and Maureen Anne McDonald.
Though it’s the third song released from the new collection, it’s only the second single. When speaking to EW earlier this year about the album, Bunetta said, “To be honest, I think there are six songs that could be singles on here.”
