Grammy-winning pop singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran focuses on overcoming adversity on “Boat,” the second single from his sixth LP, Subtract.
Ineed to feel elements to remind me / There’s beauty when it’s bleak.” Thoughtful lyrics, Ed Sheeran. The Grammy-winning pop singer/songwriter returns with the second single, “Boat”, from his sixth studio album, Subtract. “Boat” serves as the opener of Sheeran’s final mathematical-themed album. He wrote the record alongside Aaron Dessner who produces the track Boat.
“The more that I love, the less that I feel
The times that I jumped never were real
They say that all scars will heal, but I know
Maybe I won’t
But the waves won’t break my boat
But the waves won’t break my boat.”
All in all, Ed Sheeran delivers a second respectable single in advance of Subtract. Is “Boat” the second coming? No, but it is thoughtful and definitely uplifting, particularly as he asserts, “But the waves won’t break my boat.” It is a solid preface to Subtract.
