Fans were able to pre-order this album as of this past Friday. This will be Sheeran’s first album in three years with buzz from the release of two songs “Shape of You” and ” Castle on the Hill.”
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, Sheeran stated that he wrote this album without thinking about himself but someone else;
“Well, it was written with Rihanna in mind, to begin with before it became the song ‘Shape of You’, but that’s how the song was originally created.”
In addition to releasing the details to this album, Sheeran also shared his track list; which you can see here and surprised his fans from Ireland by writing two songs on the album with Irish roots tied to them. This is going to be a great album!
