Ed Sheeran Performs “Shivers” on The Graham Norton Show
- British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran appeared on BBC The Graham Norton Show to perform his latest song “Shivers”.
It is his first appearance as a musical guest on this TV show in four years.
The song was released on September 10th from his upcoming fifth studio album “=” and reached No. 1 on the UK singles Chart.
Ed Sheeran said, “Shivers has gone Number 1 – thank you so much for this. It feels so good coming back after so long and have everyone love the songs like this. Thank you so much. I will see you next year on tour. Nice one!”
It was written by Ed Sheeran, Kal Lavelle, Johnny McDaid and Steve Mac.
He said of the song, “I wrote [“Shivers”] as soon as the Divide tour ended in a rented farm in suffolk where we had set up a studio for a couple of weeks to see what happened. it was written over the course of 3 days which is very different for me, but I felt it was too special to get wrong. it was originally meant to be the first single but I just didn't see a world where “Bad Habits” existed if it didn't come out in the summer. “Shivers” always felt more autumnal.”
He worked with director Dave Meyers and American actress Anna Sophia Robb on the music video.
He said, “I did this video with Dave Meyers who made 'Bad Habits'. And it's equally as insane and wild. The wonderful Anna Sophia Robb stars in it too, it was so fun to film.”
The new album is set to be released on October 29, 2021.
