Quick Rip: Did Ed Sheeran Just Create a New Super-Group?

The short answer: I sure hope so.

But unlikely. Ed Sheeran continues his streak of collaborations by teaming up with Chris Stapleton and Bruno Mars for a distortion-heavy rock-club jam that reminds me of Lenny Kravitz.

Each vocalist is at first a little hard to identify in their respective verses, because this particular song doesn’t really fall into any of their typical genres. All three singer/songwriters dip their toes into rock, but none of them has ever embraced it so heartily and bombastically.

Hearing this, I wish they would more often. There’s definitely going to be an over-the-top performance of this song at the Grammy’s or MTV Music Awards or some such event, and I’m already looking forward to it.

The video is well done, too. I’m really into all the people in the audience head-banging in unison.
