ED SHEERAN is our ARTIST OF THE MONTH for March 2017!
After a year long self-imposed hiatus from Social Media, Ed Sheeran is finally back and making history with TWO record-breaking comeback singles - “Shape Of You” and “Castle On The Hill”. His latest album ÷ (pronounced “divide”) was released on the 3rd of March 2017 through Asylum/Atlantic Records, whilst “Shape Of You” breaks the Spotify record for ‘one day’ streams, accumulating 7,940,950 and knocking Adele’s “Hello” out of the park!
Ed's response? “First off, what a week! The reaction to my new singles has been absolutely mind-blowing and I can’t thank you enough. My new album ÷ holds a very special place in my heart and I really believe this is my best work to date. I’ve been eager to get back and I couldn’t be more excited for March 3rd.”
