Listen To Ed Sheeran Cover Hailee Steinfeld And Zedd’s ‘Starving’

Ed Sheeran dropped his highly anticipated third studio album Divide on Friday, quickly breaking Spotify’s record for most album streams in 24 hours thanks to his new batch of songs. But that doesn’t mean the British singer is about to abandon his love of covers.

Stopping by Capital FM over the weekend, Sheeran gave Hailee Steinfeld and Zedd’s “Starving” the cover treatment, citing it as a song he “just really likes.” The new cover is Sheeran’s latest foray into the pop world, with the singer also recently declaring his status as a Little Mixer before covering girl group Little Mix’s “Touch.”

If it seems like Sheeran has been everywhere lately, it’s because he has. Sheeran announced his new album in January, his first since 2014’s Grammy-nominated Multiply. Since then he’s made the promo rounds, playing radio stations and late night shows as well as the Grammy Awards, the Brit Awards, and another huge show last night.

Sheeran was in L.A. this weekend to perform at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, where he and Benny Blanco accepted the award for Best Lyrics for their work on Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself.”

Then, he took the stage again for a back-to-back performance of “Shape of You” and “Castle On The Hill,” the two lead singles from Divide.

He released official music videos for the two tracks, including the boxing-themed “Shape Of You” and the nostalgic “Castle on the Hill,” which had Sheeran returning to his hometown of Framlingham in Suffolk, England.

Prior to the release of Divide, Sheeran also dropped unofficial videos for “How Does It Feel (Paenan)” on his 26th birthday and “Eraser” last week.
