Ed Sheeran releases two new songs: Castle on the Hill and Shape of You
Ed Sheeran is the first major artist to release new music in 2017. The English singer-songwriter has unveiled two songs that you can listen to now: uplifting mid-tempo Castle on the Hill and the club-friendly Shape of You.
Castle on the Hill
Shape of You
Unveiled in the early hours of this morning, the singles are Sheeran’s first releases since 2015 and showcase two very different sides to his unparalleled musical palate. Castle on the Hill, written by Ed and Benny Blanco (also on production), pays homage to growing up in Framlingham, Suffolk. Driving beats and Springsteen-esque riffs collide to create another stadium-ready anthem. Shape Of You, written with Johnny McDaid and Steve Mac (also on production), dismantles and rebuilds club-friendly pop music using little more than a loop pedal. The record is an extension of the sound for which Sheeran has become known for.
