Ed Sheeran has unveiled the official video for his single "Castle On The Hill". Shot in his hometown of Framlingham in Suffolk, England, and directed by George Belfield, the coming-of-age video shows what looks to be a young Sheeran growing up in the green fields of Suffolk and is a perfect companion to the storytelling of the song.
"Castle On The Hill" and the chart-topping "Shape Of You" were both released on January 6th, and are the first singles from the singer-songwriter's highly anticipated third studio album ÷ (pronounced divide), which is due out March 3rd via Atlantic Records.
Last week, "Shape Of You" debut at #1 and "Castle On The Hill" entered at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100, making Sheeran the first artist ever to debut two singles in the top 10 simultaneously in the chart's 58-year history. "Shape Of You" also marked another milestone for Sheeran, as it became his first U.S. #1 on the Hot 100. So far, "Shape Of You" and "Castle On The Hill" have been streamed over 370 million times worldwide.
÷ was recorded between Los Angeles, London, Suffolk and while crossing the Atlantic aboard the RMS Queen Mary 2. It was executive produced by multi-GRAMMY winner Benny Blanco and Sheeran with additional production coming from Johnny McDaid, GRAMMY winner Mike Elizondo, and BRIT-award winner Steve Mac. Sheeran created the album artwork concept for ÷, and painted the cover himself.
