UK fans were delighted by the buzz of their new music, as it was more than four years since their last album was released, Divide.
He shared with the BBC that he was to perform a single from his upcoming album during his performance, but he delayed the release as the music video was not ready at all. As he said, “One needs to do a lot of pre-production on it to look beautiful.”
As far as the album is concerned, Ed described it as “an amalgamation of all records”.
“The first single is different, like, really, really different,” he shared before sharing. “Every time I release the first thing from an album, I get nervous about it because I’m like, ‘Oh, I don’t know how it’s going,’ and I like that feeling. Like, I can just issue a ‘Thinking Out Loud’ or ‘Castle on a Hill’ or something that is safe, but for me, I like the idea of putting something else in and being like, ‘I don’t know how people feel Are going to do about this. ‘”
