Ed Sheeran Drops ‘Boat’


Ed Sheeran has released a new single, ‘Boat’, taken off his upcoming album, ‘-‘ (‘Subtract’).

The new track comes alongside an accompanying music video that sees the singer submerged in the sea with waves engulfing him.

‘Boat’ serves as the opening track to ‘-‘, which is due out on May 5 via Asylum/Atlantic.

Besides being the opening track for Sheeran’s upcoming record, ‘Boat’ was also the first song the singer-songwriter penned for the record.

Per a press release, the song is “a metaphor for depression; a track that combats the struggles of feeling very low and not knowing how to break the cycle”.

‘-‘ will be Sheeran’s most personal work to date, following a string of gut-wrenching events in his life.
