Ed Sheeran announces new single and lyric video
Ed Sheeran announced today his new single “Perfect”, a very sweet ballad accompanied by a lyric video shared online. The song is the fourth official single to be released from Ed’s record-breaking third studio album ‘÷’ , released in March and follows the chart-topping “Shape Of You”, “Castle On The Hill” and “Galway Girl”.
The song was one of the album’s tracks that entered the Official Singles Chart Top 10 the first week of its release, landing at Number 4, but its new single status will surely help send it all the way to the top.
“Perfect” is a romantic ballad written about his girlfriend Cherry Seaborn, which Sheeran said he hoped would become another one of his defining songs. In an interview with Zane Lowe, he said “I just wanted to beat Thinking Out Loud because I know that song was going to define me…With “Perfect”, it was like, I need to write the best love song of my career”.
The record is also the most successful UK album of 2017, after shifting 2.2 million albums in six months, while also holding 4 x Platinum and 10 x Gold certifications across the world.
