Just one month ago, Teddy returned, aka English singer-songwriter, Ed Sheeran, with a double dose of new music. Perhaps the more seductive of the pair, ‘Shape of You‘ is a truly tantalising addition to Ed’s already impressive catalogue of tunes.
Even more alluring that the track itself is the accompanying video clip, directed by Jason Koenig. Following Ed and a female boxer from his gym, the video is as charming as the song is catchy. The pair train together, eat together and eventually Ed challenges a sumo wrestler – it’s a bit of a twisted love story.
As expected, ‘Shape of You’ features Ed’s flawless songwriting skills and delivers yet another dance-evoking melody to through synth-soaked drum beats. The international talent’s continuous instrumental experimentation is indicative of what to expect from his upcoming release.
The clip comes less than a month before the release of his highly anticipated album ÷ or Divide which is set for release Friday, 3 March. Pre-order the record now.
