It was exactly a year to the day that Ed Sheeran made his explosive comeback after taking time off social media, and we were treated to not one, but 2 new tracks from the 25 year old.
Following Castle on the Hill, Sheeran has now dropped the official video for Shape of You, my personal favourite out of the 2 singles.
Taken from upcoming album ‘Divide’, Shape of You is different to anything we’ve heard from Sheeran, being a sultry R’n’B number rather than his common acoustic folk. The video follows this league, when the main main is joined by model Jennie Pegouskie as his love interest. Sheeran is training for a boxing match in the 4 and a half minute visuals, which take a surprising turn when faced with a sumo-wrestler at the end.
This playful ending is a nod at Sheeran’s sense of humour, and we cannot help but fall in love with the Halifax born star even more after just 1 watch of this video.
Ed Sheeran has wasted no time at all, and recently announced a UK and Ireland tour starting in Dublin on April 12th and finishing up at London’s iconic O2 Arena on May 2nd. Full list of worldwide dates and ticket availability can be found via his website.
‘Divide’ is out on March 3rd, pre-order here.
