THE DAY HAS FINALLY ARRIVED. After making us all wait three whole years for new material Ed Sheeran has dropped his new album ‘Divide’. At the beginning of the year, he released the chart-topping singles ‘Shape of You’ and ‘Castle On the Hill’. He has also since released another track ‘How Would You Feel (Paean)’ as a little taster for us to feast our ears on before we got to hear the full record.
Ed Sheeran is BACK and he’s absolutely smashing it. As much as ‘x’ and ‘+’ are timeless albums it was definitely time for some new material to grace the earth.
Why have my whole teenage years just flashed before my eyes? Unsure. There is something so relatable about the lyrics to ‘Castle On the Hill. It definitely reminds me of summer, drinking outside with my mates and the whole process of growing up and moving away from my hometown.
FILLED WITH ENERGY
When ‘Shape of You’ was released it was clear there were going to be some absolute pop hits on this album. Depending on what singles are to follow, I’m sure we will be dancing to these songs in various party settings for the next however long.
What else does Ed have in store for us this year? He has already released the dates for his mammoth tour in a few months’ time and is playing a charity gig at the Royal Albert Hall at the end of this month. He is also is rumoured to be headlining Glastonbury, alongside one of the greatest bands on the planet (Radiohead) and The Foo Fighters. It is going to be interesting to see what else he has got to sink his teeth into in 2017 after his big comeback.
Does it really have to end? Now to sit with the album on repeat for the foreseeable.
