As far as singles off his sophomore set are concerned, Ed Sheeran is two for two in the Booth; both SING and Don’t won widespread praise from our readers. Well, I think it’s not premature to announce that he’s achieved a hat trick; though Afire Love love is very different in sound and tone from either of its predecessors, its universal themes and emotional potency seem destined to make it a hit on our pages and beyond. Over a bittersweet, fiddle-laced arrangement produced by Sheeran himself, the artist vividly depicts his grandfather’s deterioration in the grips of Alzheimer’s disease, and the slowly-healing hole his death left in the family. Pre-order X in anticipation of its June 23, drop date, and you’ll receive a free download of this poignant cut in the bargain.
