Mercury Prize nominee, Ed Sheeran, has announced his new single ‘Perfect’ and you can watch the accompanying lyric video here.
A personal favourite of Ed’s and fans alike, ‘Perfect’ – a modern-day ballad and yet another pristine example of the troubadours’ timeless storytelling – is the fourth official single to be released from Ed’s record-breaking third studio album ‘÷’ (pronounced “divide”) and has already accumulated over half a billion streams to date!
Released in March, the LP continues its reign as the UK’s most-streamed AND biggest-selling album of the year thus far, with over 2.2 million UK sales in just six months (OCC). Globally, the album has surpassed 10 million sales, holding 84 x Platinum and 10 x Gold certifications across the world.
Furthermore, as of this week, ‘Shape of You’ has officially become the most-streamed track of all time on Spotify with 1.318 billion streams, overtaking Drake’s ‘One Dance’!
26-year-old Sheeran, who recently took home ‘Artist of the Year’ at the VMA’s, is nominated for three Q Awards this year including ‘Best Track’, ‘Best Solo’ and ‘Best Act In The World Today’- the awards will take place at London’s Roundhouse on October 18 (vote here).
Ed will be heading out on a sold-out, 19-date UK stadium tour in May/June 2018 that’ll include four nights at Wembley Stadium.
