WATCH THE OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR “GALWAY GIRL” HERE
Global superstar Ed Sheeran has unveiled the official video for “Galway Girl” off his worldwide smash album “÷” (pronounced “divide”). The multiple GRAMMY winning singer-songwriter’s 3rd studio album recently became the first album released in 2017 to be certified platinum by the RIAA.
Watch the official video, which was shot on location in Dublin and features Oscar-nomimated actress Saoirse Ronan (Brooklyn, Atonement) HERE.
Additionally, “Castle On The Hill,” the follow-up to the blockbuster single “Shape of You,” has just been certified platinum and is rocketing up the charts. The song debuted at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 along with the chart-topping entry of “Shape Of You” upon their tandem release earlier this year, establishing Sheeran as the first artist to ever have two singles make simultaneous top 10 debuts in the chart’s 58-year history. Both singles were the first two songs released in 2017 to achieve certifications this year. Sheeran first premiered “Castle On The Hill” back in February with a performance on “Saturday Night Live” and shortly thereafter performed the song during an outdoor concert in NYC’s Rockefeller Plaza on Today. He has since gone on to perform “Castle On The Hill” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Later this month, he’ll perform the song at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards.
“Castle On The Hill” follows Sheeran’s massive lead single “Shape Of You,” which is now 3x-platinum, and currently stand at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 after topping the chart for an astounding 12 weeks. “Shape Of You” also broke the all-time record for the most played song in a single week at both Top 40 – besting Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” which held the record since 2015 – as well as Hot AC radio, where it remains at #1.
Sheeran’s entire North American arena tour sold out in a matter of minutes and is set to kick off on June 29th at Kansas City, Mo’s Sprint Center. The cross-country trek – which includes 3-night stands at both Los Angeles’ Staples Center and Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center – continues through early October.
