Ed Sheeran Delayed His Album Release All Because Of Donald Trump

26 September 2016


Ed Sheeran had actually planned for his new album, Divide, to come out way back in 2016, only a certain nightmare of a politician just had to get in the way.

November was the original goal for fans to hear the new music, but Ed soon changed his mind because of the "s**t storm" that was Donald Trump's presidential campaign.



"The plan was to come in September and then the album was meant to come in November, but the week the album was coming out was the week the presidential elections - that was just a s**t storm of media and I was like obviously if I come out with a record then no one's gonna care and then the week after Bruno [Mars] came out, the week after The Weeknd came out and I was like…" explained Ed during a visit to SiriusXM.

"It feels like a clean start this year not like any time I've come out there's always been another person. Like remember the first year I came out, being nominated for every award but then Adele was nominated for every award, and I'd kinda turn up like, uh yeah."

And NO ONE wants to have to go up against Adele a second time.

He added: "But this year it kinda feels like there's no one there ... I'm very, very confident in this year. This year is mine!"

Well someone's been listening to those self help tapes. Either that or Divide is just really freakin' good.
