When people saw “Galway Girl” on the track list for Ed Sheeran’s new album, many wondered if it would be a cover of the classic Irish song. While it turned out to be an original, the track from “Divide” still tapped into a very Irish aesthetic. Maybe that’s why Ed waited until St. Patrick’s day to drop a lyric video for the track.
The animated visual has the lyrics stylized to look just like the album’s cover. The lyric video gives fans a chance to experience Ed’s songwriting prowess word by word as it tells the story of his hookup with a girl in an Irish bar.
Watch the new lyric video for “Galway Girl” below.
