The new music today on New Music Friday might not seem so new. That’s because the first singles from the record have been all over the radio for the last couple of months.
Ed Sheeran has become a bona fide pop superstar despite defying every possible rock star convention. On Divide he continues defying conventions by doing the exact same thing he’s done on his previous two albums: mixing pseudo-sensitive, lyrics with singer songwriter guitar and occasional bursts of Taylor Swift-esque production. If you’re a fan already, you’re probably going to love the new album.
