NEW MUSIC: ED SHEERAN | BAD HABITS
Ed Sheeran has released a brand new song titled “Bad Habits,” marking his official return to music after a two-year hiatus. The singer-songwriter co-wrote and co-produced the track with longtime collaborators Johnny McDaid (“Shape of You”) and FRED (No.6 Collaborations Project). Sheeran did release a song titled "Afterglow" with an accompanying performance video late last year, his first since welcoming his baby girl, Lyra Antarctica, with wife Cherry Seaborn back in August. “Feels great to be back with my new single,” Sheeran wrote in a statement. “I wanted the video for ‘Bad Habits’ to play on the nature of habits in a fantastical way, so I decided on vampires. It was mega fun getting into character except for the heights (that wasn’t so fun). Enjoy x”
In the accompanying music video, directed by Dave Meyers, Sheeran portrays a vampire alter-ego as he embarks on a wild night out with other goblins and ghouls. Starting Monday, June 28th, Sheeran will take up a week-long residency on "The Late Show With James Corden," performing some of his biggest hits live in the Late Show studio and being interviewed by Corden. “Bad Habits” will be featured on Sheeran’s upcoming fifth studio album that has no official release date as of yet.
