After one long year of being away from social media and the spotlight, Ed Sheeran has finally made a comeback. His highly anticipated album, titled ÷, dropped on March 3rd, and the fans are in a frenzy. The entire album has been scattered about the Spotify Global Top 50 chart. It’s currently the #1 album on iTunes. The single Shape of You (which you’ve probably heard) is the #1 song on both Spotify and iTunes. The album is being received spectacularly, and deserves as much.
Divide truly proves how much of a musical genius Ed Sheeran is, with soft songs such as Supermarket Flowers (an ode to his departed grandmother) and upbeat songs like Nancy Mulligan. Listening to the album is a great experience- in fact, I’m listening to it as I write this and am thoroughly enjoying it. Divide mostly features Sheeran and his guitar, which you can hear in every song, but also new and unique tunes that you won’t hear anywhere but this album.
Divide also does justice to Sheeran’s lyrical ability (though his previous albums have done so as well). The lyrics are catchy, heartfelt, raw, and personal, regarding topics such as love, loss, and life.
“Well, I’ve found love inside the arms of the woman I know. She is the lighthouse in the night that will safely guide me home.”
– Hearts Don’t Break Around Here
This is just a sample of ÷. I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed with this album, and I highly recommend giving the songs a listen.
