Castle on the Hill is one of the lead singles off of Sheeran’s upcoming album “Divide”. The song itself transports listeners to a time when they were young and things were simpler. Memories of parties with friends, drinking cheap alcohol, and finding your first love are all wrapped up in this song, sentimental bow and all.

The video takes place in Framlingham Suffolk, England, which is Ed Sheeran’s hometown. The viewer sees a young Sheeran trying to find out where he belongs, what it means to be a friend, and the joy that comes along with having a group to call your own.
It is a video that chronicles a young man’s journey to finding himself. Sheeran reminisces about smoking hand-rolled cigarettes and his first kiss on a Friday night, and he jokes that he is pretty sure he did not do it right.
Towards the end of the song Sheeran begins to look at where his friends are now, and how much things have changed from when they were younger. At the end of the video he returns back to his roots walking the same roads he did when he was younger.
All of Sheeran songs have a heavy amount of emotions tied to them, and also are extremely relatable to a great majority of people.
Ed Sheeran’s album “Divide” is set to be released March 3rd.
