Ed Sheeran's comeback is complete. After going fully off the radar in 2016, the famously redheaded musician returned today with his third studio album, ÷ (said as “divide”), continuing his unique tradition of using elementary school math as the basis for his album concepts. While + established his talents and x expanded his sound tenfold, true to its title, ÷ splits up not only himself, but his audience.

Sheeran goes beyond typical singer-songwriter fare and delves into every sound under the sun, from Celtic folk on “Galway Girl” to heartthrob bubblegum on “What Do I Know?” to tropical pop on first single “Shape of You”. On ÷, he not only divides his signature sound into multiple new products, he does it in a way that sounds effortless, proving a musical prowess that expands beyond the typical “guy with a guitar” image. Listen to the album below.
