At the end of 2015, more precisely December 13th 2015, Ed Sheeran had announced his self-imposed hiatus from music world. He had realized he needed a break since, as he said, he found himself seeing the world through the screen and not his eyes. Also, he mentioned this break will serve him as an opportunity to create his third studio album. A year later, he posted a sign on his social medias (a photo with square) as an announcement he is getting back in music world. Ed Sheeran said this album – Divide is the best thing he made so far. On January 1st 2016, he officially ended his hiatus and said new music is coming soon, more precisely on January 6th, five days after. That day, he published “Castle on the Hill” and “Shape of You” while other singles were published later, in March, when the album was released.
When I met Ed Sheeran with his debut album, "+", I convinced myself that it would be the Golden Boy that the British had been looking forward to for years. I was not wrong, the success of that first album was probably unexpected for him. Everyone wondered who that boy was who masterfully sensitized issues that could reach the hearts of people of any age and culture. A guitar and an effects processor to sequence the accompaniment of their songs and, above all, lyrics. Yes lyrics, things to say, stories to tell. And well, anyone can tell me that almost all popular songs contain lyrics, but come on, what they say! In contrast, Ed Sheeran was willing to conquer the hearts of music lovers through all his senses and not resorting to the simple formula of a contagious rhythm, an inconsequential letter, everything in the blender and voila! We have a success. No, the commitment of the one born in London in 1991 with the name of Edward Christopher Sheeran was, rather than with anything else, with himself. Faithful to his style, but, above all, true to his convictions, we come to the moment of "÷". An album that shows us the maturity of a determined musician not to betray his essence but convinced that he has to move forward in the same line so as not to stagnate and end up in oblivion. Artists like him, rarely appear, so we must take advantage of every last drop of creativity that comes from his songs and, above all, enrich our taste for reading and poetry with his lyrics. Ed Sheeran does not disappoint us and each of his creations has a valuable contribution either for a deep thought or to create a beautiful image in our mind. He also tells us painful things and situations that many of us have experienced. A complete and universal artist: Ed Sheeran.
Ed Sheeran is mostly known for his beautiful vocals, heart wrenching lyrics, and mathematical album titles. But he has released another album titled Divide. The first single, “Shape of You,” which is an electro pop tune, was released alongside the second single, “Castle on the Hill,” which is the Ed Sheehan-Esque guitar driven song. The album offers many different sounds and tempos but also surround his vocals and beautiful lyrics. From the very first song where he incorporates rapping all the way to the twelfth song on the track list that is sure to make everyone sob. Ed’s third album is sure to make an impression on anyone. It features many love song songs and a few heartbreak songs as well, and they’re all (mostly) about his own ex-girlfriend and his feelings towards her. Despite that, the album has a wickedly good love song, that may or may not be better than the oh so popular “Thinking Out Loud.”
