I was not, like everyone else in England seems to be, an Ed Sheeran fan right from the start.
I was put-off from trying him out because I couldn’t understand why a singer-songwriter and ace guitar player would want to insert rap into his songs. Also, I’m not keen on the constant references to smoking, taking drugs and drinking alcohol in his lyrics.
But as much as I wasn’t won over by +, I was hooked by some catchy songs on X and Divide is more of the same.
Galway Girl is really catchy and I love the Irish fiddle. I can’t believe Sheeran even had to justify this song to his record company!
