AceShowbiz - After teasing that he would be releasing a music video for track "Happier" last week, Ed Sheeran finally premiered the visuals on Friday, April 27. The British singer is noticeably absent in the clip, but fans get to see a puppet representing himself belting out the track.
The clip starts off with a sad-looking puppet walking around the town as he watches his ex-lover getting cozy with her new boyfriend. He then goes into his home while recalling the sweet moment that he shares with his former girlfriend.
" 'Cause baby you look happier, you do/ My friends told one day I'll feel it too," he sings. "And until then I'll smile to hide the truth/ But I know I was happier with you." The end of the music video finds the puppet finding out that his former girlfriend breaks up with her boyfriend.
"Happier" is one of the tracks off Sheeran's critically acclaimed album "Divide (division sign)", which was released on March 3, 2017. In an interview with GQ, the singer described the track as "another standout ballad with his cleverest and most mature lyrics yet, looking back on a failed relationship with an original twist."
Sheeran said of the song in another interview, "I've definitely got to a point in my life where I'm friends with all my ex-girlfriend now, like we're all cool and it's very much like I'm really happy that you're happy and with someone that you love, and they are really happy that I'm happy and with someone and there's a grown up element to it. 'Happier' was like that coming out I guess me - writing a grown up song."
Ed is currently hitting the road in support of his latest album. The singer recently announced that Irish group Beoga would be joining him for the European leg of his tour.
