ED SHEERAN UNVEILS THE OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR “CASTLE ON THE HILL”
“SHAPE OF YOU” & “CASTLE ON THE HILL” REMAIN AT #1 & #2 IN IRELAND’S OFFICIAL CHARTS FOR THE 2nd WEEK
ED LANDS HIS FIRST US #1 WITH “SHAPE OF YOU”
Chart-topping Ed Sheeran has unveiled the official video for “Castle On The Hill”. Shot in his native Framlingham, Suffolk, and directed by George Belfield, the coming-of-age video is a snapshot into Ed’s teen years alongside scenes of him returning home; the perfect accompaniment to the song’s beautifully honest storytelling.
Over the past two weeks, Ed has taken the globe by storm with the biggest musical comeback in recent years. Holding the #1 & #2 positions for the second week in the UK and Ireland’s Official Singles Chart [Ed made history as the first-ever artist to land the two spots respectively with two brand new tracks], last week, 25-year-old Ed accomplished yet more record-breaking acclaim: landing his first US #1 as a performer on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Shape Of You”. He also became the first artist ever to debut in Billboard’s Top 10 with two songs simultaneously, with “Castle On The Hill” debuting at #6.
To date, “Shape Of You” and “Castle On The Hill” have accumulated over an astounding 370 million combined, worldwide streams. Ed Sheeran’s third studio album ÷ (divide) will be released on 3rd March through Asylum/Atlantic Records (available to pre-order now).
