Sheeran är tillbaka efter två år

När artister är på gång med ett nytt album skickar de ut någon singel. Ed Sheeran är inte som alla andra – han skickar ut två med en gång.

Det har tagit nästan två år, men nu är Englands popikon tillbaka med lite nytt material.

Det är lite småtrevliga låtar där Castle on the hill sätter sig i huvudet direkt. U2-gitarrerna i bakgrunden låter grymt bra.

When I was six years old I broke my leg

I was running from my brother and his friends tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass I rolled down

I was younger then, take me back to when I

Found my heart and broke it here, made friends and lost them through the years

And I’ve not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know, I’ve grown but I can’t wait to go home

 

I’m on my way, driving at 90 down those country lanes

Singing to Tiny Dancer, And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real

When we watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

 

Fifteen years old and smoking hand rolled cigarettes

Running from the law through the backfields and getting drunk with my friends

Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don’t reckon I did it right

I was younger then, take me back to when we found

Weekend jobs when we got paid and buy cheap spirits and drink them straight

Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long, oh how we’ve grown

I can’t wait to go home

 

I’m on my way, driving at 90 down those country lanes

Singing to Tiny dancer, And I miss the way you make me feel, it’s real

When we watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

Over the castle on the hill

Over the castle on the hill

Over the castle on the hill

 

One friend left to sell clothes

One works down by the coast

One had two kids but lives alone

One’s brother overdosed

Ones already on his second wife

Ones just barely getting by

But these people raised me

And I can’t wait to go home

 

And I’m on my way, and I still remember those country lanes

When we did not know the answers, And I miss the way you make me feel, it’s real

When we watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

Over the castle on the hill

Over the castle on the hill

Shape of you låter helt annorlunda. Om det i alla fall finns en liten rockkänsla i Castle on the hill så är Shape of you en poplåt.

Sheerans nya album, hans tredje, ska släpas under 2017.

Musikälskare sedan liten skit ... Fem album man måste ha i samlingen? Oasis - (What's the Story?) Morning glory, The Gaslight Anthem - The '59 sound, Tom Petty - Full moon fever, U2 - The Joshua Tree, Dire Straits - Brothers in arms och Bruce Springsteen - Born In the U.S.A. Det gick inte att välja fem ...
