Ed Sheeran has released his first single of the year called Bad Habits and it is dramatically different from his previous work.
Bad Habits, an electronic dance track with pulsating synths and heavy bass, is a far cry from the pop/folk-pop the singer-songwriter normally churns out
He has also unveiled the song’s music video today (Friday), in which he is dressed as a pink-suited vampire and causes chaos with his gruesome looking pals .
And many of his fans have taken to Twitter to give their approval for Ed's latest work.
One said: "It's so good I can't stop listening."
Another gushed: "What a tune!"
A third wrote: "Bad Habits is so good OMG it's so catchy, I loved it Ed congrats and I already watched the MV and ahhh its so good good job."
A fourth added: "Dude it's so cool!!! Such a fun vibe and I can’t wait to dance to it at your shows one day. Looking forward to the rest of the new stuff when you’re ready."
Ed wrote Bad Habits, alongside Fred Again and Snow Patrol‘s Johnny McDaid, who he has previously collaborated with.
It is the first single he has released this year after 2020's Afterglow – and it is expected to appear on his forthcoming album, believed to be called Minus (-), NME reports.

In a recent interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music, Ed explained Afterglow was released to appease fans who wanted to hear tracks that were like his earlier material.
He said: “For years (the fans) were like ‘Yeah we want stuff to sound like the first album again, give us Plus!
“So I put out Afterglow at Christmas just as a kind of…’here you go’ and the reaction was ‘eh’.”
He added: “People liked it but it was like ‘this is just what you’ve done before’.”
