Ed Sheeran departs from his acoustic ballads with his dope new single “SING” featuring music’s man of the moment the ever oh-so-cool (and seemingly ageless) Pharrell Williams.
Acoustic guitar is still present but instead of a slow jam, Ed Sheeran has gone for an upbeat R&B infused pop track a la “Señorita” back in the old school Justin Timberlake days mixed with a bit of “The Seed (2.0)” by The Roots. Its funky, its catchy and shows off Sheeran’s vocals as he runs through a number of licks and shows off an impressive falsetto as he begs the question… “Can you feel it?” Well let me tell you now I’m feelin’ it boy! Sing It!
Wise decision to go for an upbeat, funky track to set the tone for his upcoming sophomore album instead of an acoustic ballad hes synonymous for. Its sure to get the buzz positively going. #checkitout
“I need you darling
Come on set the tone
If you feel you’re falling
Won’t you let me know”
