Ed Sheeran – Castle On The Hill/Shape Of You
We’re only a week into 2017 and now Ed Sheeran is the latest artist to mark his return to music with the release of two new songs, ‘Castle on the Hill’ and ‘Shape of You’.
The tracks, taken from his forthcoming album ‘÷’ (Divide), were originally intended for release back in September but held off until now.
Sheeran co-wrote Castle On The Hill’ with pop producer Benny Blanco, with whom he also wrote 2014’s ‘Don’t’. ‘Shape Of You’ was co-written by Sheeran with Snow Patrol‘s Johnny McDaid and Steve Mac.
Speaking about his decision to return with two new tracks: “Hello 2017! I’ve been working hard on the new material and I hope you can be as excited about it as I am. I really wanted to show two different sides to my music that I’m equally as passionate about and I just knew I wanted to roll with two songs at the same time. I’m absolutely buzzing to be back.”
