New album, or album(s), out this year
I don't feel like this song translates well to a live setting at all. Maybe he just needs to take a different approach, but I think this sounds pretty bad.
I actually prefer that to the studio track by a wide margin. It sounds way more original, and my main problem with the version he released is that it feels to me like him chasing a sound that was popular 5 years ago
Edit: I would actually go so far as to say I kind of dislike what he released, but I would have liked it a lot if it sounded more like that (i.e. Ed Sheeran with a full band)
I'm looking forward to the second album of the pair, which I assume is Subtract. I'm ready for Ed Sheeran's own Nebraska.
I'm a fan of Ed also but... I'm not sure I'd compare him to Springsteen personally
This is actually from an interview he had a couple years ago where he described Subtract as a lo-fi album influenced by Nebraska:
Yeahhh I knew I got that from somewhere!
he does "so much" because it very obviously works for the general public. Dude has consistent mega-hits, seems pretty short-sighted to try and be a keyboard warrior to tell him he's doing something wrong
Ahhh that makes more sense then lol
despite not liking "Bad Habits," I definitely get it now.... I think I have heard it... twice or three times total, but after just seeing the words "Bad Habits" the chorus immediately got stuck in my head
