Listen to ‘The Man’ from Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran is continuing to take a page out of his good friend Taylor Swift’s book, releasing new music for free in anticipation of his June 23 album drop for X. Swift, who scored Sheeran as the opening act on her hugely successful Red Tour last year, enlisted a similar tactic, releasing pieces of each song from her 2012 album Red in the weeks leading up to the full release.
Sheeran has been speeding his sneak peek process up in comparison to Swift, instead releasing one song each day until the album hits stores on Monday. Today’s new track The Man takes a dark turn, with Sheeran slowing down his signature rap style to reveal a life that could have been if he hadn’t found international fame with his guitar. In The Man, Sheeran verbally lambasts a former flame who left him for another man, seemingly unable to deal with the demands of the singer’s hectic schedule. In true Sheeran form, the song is a brutally honest look at the relationships in his life and his desire for a family.
The artwork for the single features a cat wearing a hat, possibly a clue to the identity of the mystery woman in the song. There’s been much speculation surrounding the identities of the muses for Sheeran’s latest album, with many believing Ellie Goulding to be the source for his song Don’t.
The Man marks Sheeran’s seventh release from X, with his poppy lead single Sing still dominating airwaves.
