Ed Sheeran just dropped his latest track, “Boat,” and it’s making waves (literally). In the music video, we see our favorite ginger singer submerged in the sea, fighting off giant waves like a true champ.
But wait, there’s more! “Boat” is also the opening track of his upcoming album, ‘-‘ which is set to release on May 5. Get your pre-orders in, folks!
And this album is set to be Ed’s most personal work to date. In a statement, he spilled the tea on how a series of events in 2022 changed his life, mental health, and his views on music and art. So, he took to writing songs to make sense of his feelings, and boy did he pour it all out.
“Boat” is a metaphor for depression, and it tackles the struggles of feeling low and not knowing how to break the cycle. But fear not, Ed is here to lift our spirits with his sweet, sweet voice.
Oh, and did we mention he’s planning a posthumous album? That’s right, folks. Even after he’s gone, Ed’s music will live on. It’s a progressive work that he plans to add to throughout the rest of his career.
So, buckle up and get ready for some serious emotions because Ed Sheeran is coming in hot with ‘-‘ and we can’t wait to see what he has in store for us.
