Ed Sheeran’s Shivers is the third song from = (Equals), following ‘Bad Habits’ and ‘Visiting Hours’
Ed Sheeran has once again made his fans fall in love with his music as he finally released the new single ‘Shivers’ along with its official video directed by Dave Meyers. The video which was released on Thursday, September 9, is a real treat to the eyes and well ears too. It shows Sheeran trying to win over a girl whom he met in a diner for the first time. It continues with amazing visuals of each stage in a relationship, the waiting for the text phase, the awkward first-meet, and many more. It also includes some amazing dance moves and shiny outfits by the ‘Shape Of You’ Singer and actress AnnaSophia Robb, who plays the role of Ed’s mystery girl.
Ed Sheeran’s Shivers is yet another addition to his upcoming album, = (Equals), out on October 29. This latest single came after the 30-year-old singer’s lead single “Bad Habits” and “Visiting Hours,” which are part of the same album. “I wrote this as soon as the Divide tour ended in a rented farm in Suffolk where we had set up a studio for a couple of weeks to see what happened,” Sheeran previously shared about ‘Shivers.’
“It was written over the course of 3 days, which is very different for me, but I felt it was too special to get wrong. It was originally meant to be the first single, but I just didn’t see a world where Bad Habits existed if it didn’t come out in the summer. Shivers always felt more autumnal. I hope you like it, I bloody love it.” Sheeran further talked explained what he feels his latest album, ‘= (Equals)’ is really about.” It’s been a long, long process. I’ve been through love, loss, new life, grief, and everything in between during the whole period of writing it, and I feel like it’s really a coming of age record,” he said. “I’ve never been more proud of a body of work, or more excited/nervous for you all to hear it.”
Ed will soon be performing live at the VMAs
Apart from the debut of the official music video, Ed Sheeran will also be performing his latest song, Shivers, live for the very first time during the opening game of the 2021 NFL season, which will be airing on NBC. At the same time, the ‘Perfect’ singer’s “Bad Habits” has jumped from No. 4 to No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart (dated Sept. 11). Before this, Ed’s “Shape of You” was at No. 1, for 6 weeks back in 2017. However, on the Billboard Hot 100, “Bad Habits” ranks at No. 3 for now.
And now, yet another performance is set for Sheeran, as it has been recently announced that he will be performing his latest singles including, Shivers and Visiting Hours at the 2021 VMAs in only two days. Before this, the ‘Thinking Out Loud’ singer performed at the VMAs back in 2017 where he paired up with Lil Uzi Vert, to give a banger performance on “Shape of You” and “XO Tour Llif3.” Sheeran will be joining some other big guns on the stage this year including Justin Bieber, Travis Barker, Camila Cabello, Doja Cat, Lil Nas X, Machine Gun Kelly, Alicia Keys, Shawn Mendes, Olivia Rodrigo, Tainy, Twenty One Pilots, and many more.
