The Brit’s fans have been thrilled with the discussion about his new music, as more than four years have passed since the release of his last album Divide.
He told the BBC to perform a single from his upcoming album during his performance, but they delayed its release because the music video isn’t quite ready. As he put it, “There is a lot of preproduction to be done to make me look beautiful.”
The album itself was described by Ed as “the amalgamation of all records”.
“The first single is different, like really, really different,” he shared before explaining. “Every time I released the first of an album, I was nervous because I said, ‘Oh, I don’t know how this is going to work’ and I like that feeling. Like I could just be ‘Thinking Out Loud’ or publish a “Castle on a Hill” or something safe, but for me I like the idea of putting something else and saying, “I don’t know how people are going to feel.”
