What started as worry for One Direction's Liam Payne's health, has ended with the release of new music video and EP

for their latest single, "Perfect," from upcoming album "Made in the A.M." The EP includes a brand new song, "Home."

The world's biggest boyband, One Direction is going on hiatus and taking an extensive break for the first time in their five years as a band.

Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and Harry Styles aren't going out without showcasing the skills they've gathered through the time.

"Perfect-EP" was released over Spotify, just a few after the band had cancelled their first show and dropped a music video.

The EP starts off with a stripped down version of "Perfect." It seems the boy's of One Direction have a lot of good harmonies that get covered up by other sounds.

So any stripped version is just nice to listen to and let's each boy's voice

The "Perfect (Mamota Remix)" is adds tropical instruments and melodies. Which seems to be a theme this album with first single "Drag Me Down." The song got the Big Payno treatment and was remixed by Payne and Tomlinson, along with featuring LunchMoney Lewis.

It's an interesting remix, Payne has definitely gotten better but they were parts that take you out of the music.

Including, a random strand of notes from a harp and the transition back to the song from LunchMoney Lewis's second verse.

The song to talk about is "Home." That song should have been used as a single, probably instead of "Perfect." But who can blame Styles for wanting to poke back at Taylor Swift whose past album, "1989," had quite a few songs rumored to be about the One Direction singer.

"Home" is one of those songs that have a nice catchy chorus but the verses still feel whole enough to be able to connect with it more than just the upbeat music. The song uses the boy's vocal strengthens to its advantage.

It has been an element that's been in play since their usual high note crooner, Zayn Malik, quite the band. "Home" brings Styles into Malik territory when it comes to the line /I was stumbling./

This EP has brought more hype for One Direction's fifth album, Made in the A.M. The album will be released on November 13th, but it wouldn't be a surprised if they silently released it a few days early at this point.
