Ed Sheeran regrets the decisions he makes due to his "Bad Habits," the pop superstar's new single that he released on Friday (June 25).
Sheeran has been promoting the first single of his yet-untitled fifth studio album, which features the English singer-turned-glampire wearing a hot-pink suit, razor-sharp fangs, glittery bruise eyeshadow and spiky hair on the cover artwork. The song is the Grammy-winning artist's first official release since his 2019 album No. 6 Collaborations Project, which topped the Billboard 200.
"Bad Habits" appears to chronicle his regrets about poor choices made late at night, singing over a bass-heavy beat, "My bad habits lead to late nights, endin' alone/ Conversations with a stranger I barely know/ Swearin' this will be the last but it probably won't/ I got nothin' left to lose, or use, or do/ My bad habits lead to wide eyes starin' at space/ And I know I'll lose control of the things that I say/ I was lookin' for a way out, now I can't escape/ Nothin' happens after two, it's true, it's true, my bad habits lead to you."
