Music: Ed Sheeran - Boat

Ed Sheeran - Boat

Ed Sheeran has shared an emotional new single, "Boat," along with a music video for the track. The song, off the singer's forthcoming album Subtract, was written by the English seaside in winter and honestly reflects on depression, with Sheeran using a boat as a metaphor for attempting to keep the water at bay.

The video, directed by Mia Barnes, sees Sheeran amidst the waves on a British beach. The visual mirrors the track's lyrics as the musician tries to break the cycle of sadness: "They say that all scars heal, but I know maybe I won't," Sheeran sings. "The waves won't break my boat."

"'Boat' is the first song I wrote and finished for Subtract," Sheeran said in a statement. "It's where it all began, and a good way to kick off the album."
