÷ (pronounced "divide") - Ed Sheeran's third studio album - is on course to become one of the most significant global album releases of 2017, and sees the 25-year-old Suffolk native in his finest form yet. The genre-defying LP is the result of an artist who consistently pushes himself in new directions, uncovering fresh musical ground using a seemingly limitless musical vocabulary. Drawing inspiration from a host of personal experiences and subjects, Ed takes you through a hugely personal journey; be that reflecting on past relationships, family memories, his musical career or his time off travelling the world in 2016.
Musically ÷ is an array of beautifully orchestrated and emotive ballads, impassioned raps laid over hip hop beats, timeless acoustic guitar masterpieces and innovative, idiosyncratic pop music.
The record has been previewed through the huge singles Shape of You and Castle on the Hill which entered the UK chart simultaneously at #1 and #2 - a feat never achieved by any artist before - and between them outselling the rest of the top 10 combined.
