Ed Sheeran’s Record-breaking Return
Ed Sheeran fans already have plenty to be excited about in the new year. We’ve already got new music and the release date for a new album from the English-born singer. It’s been two years since his second album X (Multiply) was released.
The album gave us singles like “Don’t”, which got people talking about the rumored drama with Ellie Goulding and Niall Horan, and “Thinking Out Loud”, which everyone probably played at their wedding. The album was the best-selling album of 2014 in the UK, selling over 1,689,000 copies. In the US, X became Ed’s first number one on the Billboard 200.
Ed announced this week that his third album ÷ (Divide) will be out on March 3rd and available for pre-order on Friday (January 13th). The singer shared plenty over the last week including two singles “Shape Of You” and “Castle On The Hill” and the entire tracklist from the upcoming album. According to Forbes, both singles broke the all-time the record for most plays in 24 hours on Spotify. The original record was held by One Direction’s 2015 song “Drag Me Down”. It seems like the numbers keep climbing too, setting the bar even higher.
Check out the lyric video for Ed Sheeran‘s first two singles from the album ÷ (Divide) below.
