“Little Things” is a song by English-Irish boy band One Direction from their second studio album, Take Me Home (2012). It was released by Syco Music on 3 December 2012, as the record’s second single. The song was written by Fiona Bevan and Ed Sheeran, and produced by Jake Gosling. Bevan brought the song to Sheeran’s attention while he was in studio with the group in 2012, resulting in the band recording it. “Little Things” is a mid-tempo pop and folk ballad about the insistence that flaws are what make a person unique.
