Ed Sheeran’s ‘Divide’ album is the biggest selling album of 2017. It went straight to number 1 in the album charts and, on its release, gave Ed about 13 of the top 20 singles.
While it has a broad variety of musical styles, some of the lyrics are quite contemplative. They speak of some experiences common to many people. Within the album there are some clear echoes of the experiences of God’s people as they left Egypt to return to the Promised Land with all the ups and downs they faced.
Through the summer, we will explore the story of the Exodus and see how those experiences connect with five songs from Divide.
