Ed Sheeran is back with a new music video and this time it is shot from his own point-of-view.
Wednesday (May 3), Ed Sheeran released the video for his song “Galway Girl.” The video, which was shot by Sheeran himself from his own perspective, follows the 26-year-old artist as he spends a night out in the Irish town of Galway with a character played by Saoirse Ronan.
In the video, the two go from bar to bar as Sheeran gets chased by fans, plays darts, gets a new tattoo and more.
Speaking of tattoos, in real life Sheeran actually had Ronan tattoo him. She was supposed to ink the song’s title “Galway Girl” on him, but instead decided to play a little prank and actually permanently wrote the words “Galway Grill.”
“Galway Girl” is the third song from Sheeran’s album Divide to get its own video. This summer, Sheeran will bring his North American tour to Philadelphia for two nights when he plays at the Wells Fargo Center on July 11 and 12.
