Sometimes I don’t know if I am an Ed Sheeran fan or if I say that I’m a fan because it would make sense for ME to like him. You know? Some of his songs fall on constant repeat and some of his songs make him feel overrated to me. So far, he’s released three songs from his upcoming album and it is with the third one that I finally find myself obsessing over it. The first two were … underwhelming – DON’T HATE ME.
“How Would You Feel (Paean)” has found its happy place in my heart and it’s been on constant rotation since it was released. There is no denying that Ed Sheeran is talented but I find that he truly excels with his love songs. This latest one is so simple and yet I find myself clutching at my chest every time I listen to it.
How would you feel
If I told you I loved you
It’s just something that I want to do
I’m taking my time, spending my life
Falling deeper in love with you
So tell me that you love me too
This song encompasses what falling in love is like; it’s tender, sweet, simple, slow, genuine and heartfelt in its delivery. I guarantee you’ll be hearing this song as first dance songs in weddings to come, the love is real within this song.
So yes, his first two releases have yet to grow on me (maybe it’ll take a couple of more listens) but “How Would You Feel (Paean)” has wrapped itself around my heart.
What do you think? Have you liked what Ed Sheeran has released so far?
