The latest single “Bad Habits” seems to narrate Sheeran’s regrets about poor choices made late at night, singing over a bass-heavy beat, “My bad habits lead to late nights, endin’ alone/ Conversations with a stranger I barely know/ Swearin’ this will be the last but it probably won’t/ I got nothin’ left to lose, or use, or do/ My bad habits lead to wide eyes starin’ at space/ And I know I’ll lose control of the things I say/ I was lookin’ for a way out, now I can’t escape/ Nothin’ happens after two, it’s true, it’s true, my bad habits lead to you.”

Feels great to be back with my new single. I wanted the video for 'Bad Habits' to play on the nature of habits in a fantastical way so I decided on vampires. It was mega fun getting into character except for the heights (that wasn't so fun). Enjoy x.
