Divide and Conquer
This week Ed Sheeran’s new album Divide came out and it was literally everything. The album is called divide because every song is different as Sheeran explained during Friday’s Breakfast Club Interview. It’s pop, rock, rap, folk with island rhythms and African harmony sprinkled in for good measure. If he’s trying to sell like Adele this album will have him well on his way. Divide goes from hilarity when describing an ex’s new boyfriend with a bleached ass hole to vulnerability when describing picking up the pieces after a loved one has passed. Brilliantly different but somehow cohesive. If you ever wondered what would happen if Phil Collins and Stevie Wonder had a kid well here you go. Divide was on repeat the entire weekend.
