If you are a fan of Ed Sheeran like I am, you were over the moon this past weekend when he released his third studio album, ÷ (Divide). Following the immense success of + (Plus), and × (Multiply), Ed took a year long break to work on his third album and it does not diasppoint.
Before his official album release, Ed released two singles, Castle on the Hill and Shape of You, earlier in the year. Both singles sit atop the Billboard Music charts as we speak. I love both songs.
÷ has 16 tracks. Each showcasing Ed’s vocal dexterity and his guitar licks. He harkens to his Irish roots with the song Galway Girl, a little ditty about meeting an Irish gal, that features a fiddle arraingement akin to Irish culture.
This album has a mix of upbeat songs and some slower songs reminiscent of some of the tracks on ×, Save Myself is one of the slower songs that I enjoyed.
I give ÷ an A, I am happy to have Ed back and I feel this album will be highly successful just like his previous two.
