This Week In Music: Ed Sheeran’s “Bloodstream”

bloodstream ed sheeran

Well, it seems like Mr. Sheeran’s bleeding chemicals these days.

Ed Sheeran has released three songs (“Bloodstream,” “Don’t” and “Afire Love”) from his upcoming album, x (Multiply), giving fans a taste of what to expect from his latest project.

“Bloodstream” begins with an acoustic guitar melody, accompanied by Sheeran’s deep humming that plays continuously after the chorus parts of the song.

The lyrics in the song are quite emotionally heavy. “This is how it ends, I feel the chemicals burn in my bloodstream […] tell me when it kicks in,” he sings.

The chemical addictions lead to violence, as Sheeran sings, “Lord forgive me for the things I’ve done, I was never meant to hurt no one.”

Towards the end of the song, there is a beautiful round where Sheeran makes the listener feel intoxicated, head spinning as he sings over and over again,

All the voices in my mind
Calling out across the line
So tell me when it kicks in
I saw scars upon her
Tell me when it kicks in
Broken heart.

I’m not really a fan of this track in particular, but if he mixes songs like “Bloodstream” along with the album’s lead single, “Sing,” x will definitely be a hit.

Pre-order x on iTunes.
