The wait is over! Ed Sheeran has released his highly anticipated single, 'Bad Habits'.

The first single, from his fifth album, is a little darker than his usual feel-good bangers.

He sat down (virtually) to chat to 947 presenter Msizi James about his song, being a father and what some of his bad habits are.

Do what you love but do it in moderation.

Ed Sheeran

I feel like I'd done a lot of different styles of music and I'd never done a dance tune and I wanted to do something to kind of kick off this album that was very different but still... Like if you stripped it away and I played it on acoustic guitar, it would sound like a song of mine.

Ed Sheeran

The electro-pop song was co-written and produced by FRED and Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid.

"My bad habits lead to wide eyes starin' at space, and I know I'll lose control of the things that I say,
Nothin' happens after two, it's true, it's true,
My bad habits lead to you," are some of the lyrics that remind some people of a time in their life during a break-up or trying to move phase, and how they just sometimes keep going back.
