After watching his official comeback single, ‘Bad Habits,’ peak and stall at the #2 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 (then its follow-up, ‘Visiting Hours,’ later tapped out at #75), Ed Sheeran is looking to reclaim the tally’s #1 spot with ‘Shivers’ – the latest taste of new music from his October 29-due new studio album, ‘= (Equals).’
Tapping legendary music video director Dave Meyers to helm the ‘Shivers’ visual, the cinematic clip is chockfull of nods to classic animation, video games, superhero movies, and more. Speaking on the song itself, Sheeran revealed:
“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. 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.”
Starring Anna Sophia Robb as its leading lady, hop inside to see if ‘Shivers’ lives up to the hype.
