Worldwide superstar Ed Sheeran has confirmed details of his hugely anticipated new album ÷ (pronounced “divide”), set for release on 3rd March 2017 through Asylum/Atlantic Records.
Ed’s third studio album – is on the right track to turn out to be one of the vital significant global album releases of 2017 and sees the 25-year-old Suffolk native in his finest form yet. The genre-defying LP is the results of an artist who consistently pushes himself in new directions, uncovering fresh musical ground the usage of a seemingly limitless musical vocabulary. Drawing inspiration from a host of personal experiences and subjects, Ed takes you through a hugely personal journey; be that reflecting on past relationships, family memories, his musical career or his time off travelling the world in 2016. Musically ÷ is an array of beautifully orchestrated and emotive ballads, impassioned raps laid over hip hop beats, timeless acoustic guitar masterpieces and innovative, idiosyncratic pop music.
Ed’s record-breaking dual comeback singles perfectly highlight some of the distinct divides in his musical spectrum with Castle On The Hill (an ode to his hometown of Framlingham, Suffolk) positioning itself towards a stadium-ready, rockier sound and Shape Of You dismantling and rebuilding modern-pop the usage of little more than a loop pedal. ÷ will reveal everything in-between at the same time as showcasing Ed’s impeccable guitar playing, peerless lyricism, boundless musical palate and jarringly-honest, and regularly autobiographical, storytelling – one of the crucial reasons this much-loved talent has built an undeniably loyal following across the globe.
Executively produced by Benny Blanco (Rihanna, The Weeknd) and Ed himself with further production coming from Johnny McDaid, Mike Elizondo and Steve Mac, the album was once recorded between LA, London, Suffolk and RMS Queen Mary 2. Hugely representative of modern times, both sonically and topically, ÷ reaffirms Ed as some of the world’s most forward-thinking and versatile troubadours.
Furthermore, Ed created the album artwork concept, even painting the cover himself!
