A week after dropping the youthful travelogue video for "Castle on the Hill," Ed Sheeran followed up on Monday morning (Jan. 30) with the clip for the other single from his upcoming Divide (March 3) album, the Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 smash "Shape of You." Shot in Seattle and directed by Jason Koenig, the visual is proof that the couple that sweats together stays together.
It stars Ed as an aspiring boxer who hits the heavy bag at a gym alongside his girlfriend and fellow puncher, played by Fresh Pair actress Jennie Pegouskie. The first line of the song explains why this sparring-focused affair makes sense: "The club isn't the best place to find a lover/ So the bar is where I go." Except this time, Ed, who recently revealed in an interview that he packed on 50 pounds while drinking beers on his year-long hiatus, is focused on fitness and getting ripped.
