Track Review: One by Ed Sheeran

I couldn’t name one flaw about Ed Sheeran. He is clearly one of the best songwriters of our generation, and his musicality is flawless. Releasing “Sing” a song influenced by 90’s hip hop aiming for top of the charts this summer, its not surprise that the next song he released is a bit more low key, + album Ed Sheeran.

“One” tells the tale of lost love and hoping that a friendship can still remain while he watches his past love marry another man. Its acoustic driven song, opening with soft vocals and a soothing guitar rift. Quiet strings and drums join the song at the beginning of the second verse before fading out at the end of the bridge, bringing the emotion to a peak.

Sheeran leads into the chorus he bringing out his flawless falsetto, and keeping it through the chorus. With lines like “Tell me that you turned down the man Who asked for your hand ‘Cause you’re waiting for me” you are automatically swept off your feet.

“One” has not been announced as his next single but he has been playing it at promo events. You can get Sheeran’s sophomore album titled “x” June 23rd or you could pre-order it now and get “Sing” and “One”. Sheeran will be on tour in the US this upcoming August and September.
