Ed Sheeran has revealed that One Direction's new single contains some of his favourite lyrics.
The singer-songwriter penned the track 'Little Things' when he was 17, but has given the song to One Direction for their next single release.
"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," Sheeran told Capital FM.
"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?'
"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 added: "It's got one of my favourite lines that I've ever written in a song.
"Harry says, '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'."
One Direction will release their new single 'Little Things' on November 11, while upcoming album Take Me Home follows on November 12.
