After releasing Bad habits in June, Ed Sheeran is back with another single Thrill, both of which are part of his next album = (Equal), is expected to arrive on October 29.
Throwing on literal feathers and eccentricity, the English singer presents quite a love story in the video featuring various cliché rom-com elements like meet-cute or street brawl.
Here is our opinion.
Sheeran’s red hair is back after blonde shock in “Bad Habits”
Sheeran had promised, going blonde for Bad habits, that he will never give up his red hair again. And he keeps it.
The MV stars Sheeran alongside AnnaSophia Robb, as we see them fall in love after a cute encounter at a cafe.
But this summary hardly justifies the video which comes with a lot of quirk.
Robb transforms into Thomas (the train) once, for example.
We take a look at another masterpiece from the crooner ‘Photograph’
When it comes to tunes, Sheeran is a magician when it comes to composing completely different forms of music while retaining its flavor.
With lots of applause, scat and sweet melody, Thrill looks like a softened version of Form of you, but certainly not in an inferior way.
The chorus is extremely catchy and we have another trending masterpiece in our hands.
Sheeran wrote ‘Shivers’ in just three days
By announcing the second single, the Perfect crooner had said Thrill was “originally meant to be the first single but I just haven’t seen a world where Bad habits existed if it did not go out in summer. Thrill always felt more autumnal. ”
Marking the track as “too special to be wrong,” Sheeran explained how he wrote Thrill in just three days.
The song sounded “fall” to Sheeran, did you?
The song is clearly a winner, the whole album comes out in October
While the song is a straight winner, the clip is a bit too eccentric for my liking.
The safe bet would be to catch the song on any music streaming platform.
Sheeran’s upcoming fourth studio album, =, contains 14 tracks and it had output the audio for Visiting hours earlier.
Verdict: The song gets 4/5, while the clip gets 3.5 / 5 stars.
