Earlier this month Ed Sheeran returned from his year-long hiatus and break from social media with two new singles; ‘Castle On The Hill’ and ‘Shape Of You’. Both rocketed to the top of the charts and are the first two tracks to be released from his forthcoming album ‘÷‘.
‘‘÷‘ is Sheeran’s third full length album and is due for release on March 3rd 2017. Since announcing the details of his highly anticipated album, Sheeran has released a music video for ‘Castle On The Hill’, teased a huge tour and done his best to ignore the rumours that he’s headlining this year’s Glastonbury Festival.
