Friday, March 3rd, Ed Sheeran released his third studio album, Divide, and everyone lost their minds. Breaking Spotify records by having over 56 million streams in the first 24 hours, Ed is definitely entering a new era. Divide is a mix between soulful love songs, an ode to friends, memories with beats that make you want to dance and honest confessions. On his first album since 2014, Ed mixes hip-hop with pop ballads and takes you all around the world with influences from Spain, Ireland, and even Africa.
The 26-year-old recently announced the Divide World Tour, hitting Asia, South America and most recently North America. Sheeran announced he was doing arenas this year and hoping to be able to hit stadiums next. He revealed his ultimate goal: "I want to do stadiums everywhere," he says. "Like George Strait's level – he tours every four years does a couple of stadiums and then f**** off again." The North American leg of the tour kicks off June 29th in Kansas City, Missouri, taking us through October 6th in Nashville, Tennessee. Pre-sale begins March 13th, with regular sales starting March 17th. Head to Ed Sheeran’s website to score your tickets!
