Sheeran shared a short teaser via Instagram on Thursday (June 27th), letting fans know that the clip would drop at 3 a.m., just three hours after the song’s midnight release. The recording itself touches on bucking the trend of trying to be the coolest person in the room with lyrics like “Inside the world of beautiful people/Champagne and rolled-up notes/Prenups and broken homes/Surrounded, but still alone/Let’s leave the party.”
The Warner Music-released project’s visual finds the protagonists wading through groups of people who are living the high life, all the while they are perfectly content with each other’s company. The seemingly ordinary couple are happier in each other’s presence, playing sudoku when parties get in their way. Sheeran and Khalid also appear briefly in the music video, sat in the front row at a fashion show – among all the beautiful people. See the fresh clip below.
