Overpass Graffiti’ by Ed Sheeran – Single Rating: 4/5 ★★★★☆

With his new single, ‘Overpass Graffiti’, Ed Sheeran has done it again, smashed it!. Even after all these years of topping the charts and realising his wildest goals, the pop icon manages to find newfound energy and sounds as vibrant as ever!

It’s not uncommon to come across a global megastar who has a rapid surge in popularity and success, only to fall short with subsequent releases and fade into obscurity. Ed Sheeran, on the other hand, looks to be cut from a different cloth. This guy can’t fail to deliver, demonstrating why he’s the world’s most talked-about pop lord.

‘Overpass Graffiti’ has a dynamic, fresh vibe. Furthermore, Ed has strayed from the more acoustic ballad-style content that many fans expect from him and instead takes a different path. It’s a new trend for the artist, who received widespread acclaim for his more upbeat hit, ‘Bad Habits,’ which came out in early 2021.

Ed doesn’t require much praise in terms of his vocal abilities. Even before hearing the song, we all know that his vocals will be compelling. He is always at the top of his game, which is quite a rarity in the music industry. Also, he serves as an example to other artists in the scene and newcomers. But, where does he go from here? More multi-instrumental tracks? Or will he decide to head back to his roots?
