One Direction’s new single is HERE – and it’s very anti-Taylor indeed

One Direction's new single Perfect dropped this morning, and a certain pop singer is going to have a lot to say about it.

The track was supposedly penned by Harry Styles, and it seems he's finally attempting to get his own back on Taylor Swift for those 1989 slurs.

Taylor's songs I Wish You Would and Out of the Woods are strongly believed to be about her short-lived 2013 relationship with Harry, and Perfect is a pretty vicious comeback.

The single was played for the first time on Nick Grimshaw's BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show this morning – you can hear the full track below.

One line reads, "If you’re looking for someone to write your break-up songs about / Baby I’m perfect" – a thinly veiled hit at Taylor who is known for using previous relationships to fuel her songwriting.

Another line, "And if you like midnight driving with the windows down," bears a striking similarity to a line in I Wish You Would – something which fans have been quick tp pick up on. 

Game on.
