The long awaited day has finally arrived, 3 March is the day Ed Sheeran finally stops teasing us with hits like Shape of You and Castle on the Hill and drops his long-awaited new album ÷ (pronounced: Divide).

Sheeran took to Twitter yesterday to express just how exicitedted he is about the launch.

In a new song called Eraser, which is said to be the opener of ÷, Sheeran talks his life, career, insecurities, and accomplishments.

The lyrics sound pretty personal to Sheeran, starting out with a reflective line similar to the beginning of Castle on the Hill: "I was born inside a small town but I lost that state of mind."
