Our friend Ed Sheeran stopped by to perform his latest singles, "Castle On The Hill" and "Shape Of You" live in-studio. He also revealed that his upcoming album, Divide, is set to be released on March 3rd.
After taking a year off of social media and the music biz to hang out with his family and friends and experience a little bit of normality, Ed decided he's going to continue to live his life without a smartphone!
"I would be at dinner with my Gran, or something, checking Instagram," Ed told us. "The reason I'm unplugging is because I was an unsociable guy who would always be glued to a screen."
Earlier this month the UK native released two new single in one day, despite pushback from his management.
"It polarizes people." He continued, "[This way] people can have their favorite song." [...] "My look at it was, the record industry has changed so much that you have to rewrite the way to do it every time you release."
What's next for Ed Sheeran? He'll be making an appearance on the wildly popular web series Carpool Karaoke with The Late Late Show host James Corden!
And in case you missed it, he sang the Fresh Price of Bel Air theme song for a fan in Britain earlier this week. Check out the video here!
