Ed Sheeran Released His New Album & I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying

Sir Ed Sheeran (he’s not a knight, but I’m just saying—he should be) released the two first singles from his new album, Divide, two months ago on January 6. Since then, I have played “Castle on the Hill” two to three times a day, and found that “Shape of You” is the perfect soundtrack for spin class. You guessed it: I’m just slightly obsessed with Ed, so when Divide dropped today, I had a minor freakout. If you haven’t listened to the album yet, you should probably go do that right now (it’s on Spotify).

There are gorgeous ballads like “Supermarket Flowers” that make me cry every time Ed’s voice wavers a little, and there are lovely nods to the singer’s Irish heritage, like “Galway Girl” (which is already topping the charts in Ireland) and “Nancy Mulligan” (which is about his grandparents—how sweet is that??). Essentially, it’s pure magic and has made my weekend.

I’m not the only one to have lost it upon hearing Divide; the internet is just as shaken, which makes me feel a bit better.

Also, this:

I think we all just need to take a collective deep breath. And then play Divide all over again.
