He says he's desperate but Ed Sheeran sounds pretty good on the new track "I'm a Mess" from his highly anticipated sophomore album "x" that's out Monday.
Earlier this week Sheeran told fans at his album release party in Los Angeles, "I'm generally a happy person, my songs just tend to be a bit down."
That makes sense in the context of "I'm A Mess," which starts with the confession: "Oh I'm a mess right now, inside out. Searching for the sweet surrender but this is not the end. I can't work it out."
On the track premiered by MTV, Sheeran's intimate voice carries over simple guitar strokes as he describes a night of loneliness and longing that erupts with fiery passion.
