November 5, 2021

Ed Sheeran embarks upon an adventure-laden road trip in the official music video for “Overpass Graffiti,” a Bruce Springsteen-inspired single off his new album “=.”

The Grammy-winning British musician plays himself in the Jason Koenig-directed clip, or at least a version of himself who attends raves, hitchhikes on the freeway, and takes a ride with tough-as-nails looking motorcycle gang.

“Overpass Graffiti” is one of 14 tracks on Ed’s newly released fourth studio album. It’s also the effort’s third single, following “Bad Habits” and “Shivers.” When Ed returned to the Stern Show on Wednesday, he performed both “Shivers” and “Overpass Graffiti.” He also opened up about the inspiration for the latter effort, explaining it was meant to pay homage to the Boss.

“I think [“Overpass Graffiti” is] the closest to [sounding like him] on this record … I really like it,” Sheeran said before performing an acoustic version of the tune live on the air. Check it out (below).

Ed Sheeran’s “=” is available now.
