Ed Sheeran has released the official video for his new single “Castle On The Hill.” The clip was produced by Sheeran, directed by George Belfield and shot in Sheeran’s hometown of Framingham in Suffolk, England.
During the clip, shots of Sheeran strolling down a country road are intercut with scenes from the character’s youth, revealing experiences that left their marks on the artist as he was growing up.
“Castle On The Hill” and the chart-topping “Shape Of You,” both released at the beginning of the year are the first singles from the multi-GRAMMY award-winning singer-songwriter’s third studio album ÷ (pronounced divide).
Last week, “Shape Of You” debut at number one and “Castle On The Hill” enter at number six on Billboard’s Hot 100, making Sheeran the first artist ever to debut two singles in the top 10 simultaneously in the chart’s 58-year history. “Shape Of You” is Sheeran’s first number one hit on the Hot 100.
