Keeping with the theme for adding, multiplying, we get the third album from Ed Sheeran, titled, “Divide”
It took about three years to drop, but timing is everything in this business to produce quality. To kick off the news surrounding his album, Ed released the album’s first two singles — “Castle on the Hill” and “Shape of You” — which helped the British crooner become the first artist ever to debut two singles simultaneously in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Today (Mar 4), we have the release of the 16-track EP with no collaborations. Select tracks are produced by Ed Sheeran, Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder, Johnny McDaid and much more.
During his interview with The Guardian in regards to upcoming album, Ed Sheeran spoke about the importance off showing his creative freedom, especially through the tracks, “Galway Girl” and “Nancy Mulligan”, where takes a page from Ed’s Irish background and brings out the traditional folk in him, which the label was initially against. Plus, he steps outside of his zone by creating an afro-beat inspired track called, “Bibia Be Ye Ye”.
You can purchase the album via iTunes.
