It's official. Ed Sheeran is done teasing us about his album's undisclosed details. On Thursday, Sheeran confirmed his third studio album will be titled Divide and the release date will be March 3. Sheeran's opus will be available for preorder at midnight "in your country," he tweeted Thursday.  

He also offered a peek at the official cover art. Sheeran is sticking with the theme of mathematical symbols in using the division symbol over a blue background to mark the new record. His last album was called x, or Multiply. His debut +, or Plus

Divide, Sheeran's first album since 2014, has already garnered buzz based on the success of the first two singles, which broke a Spotify record for the most streams in a 24-hour period, Billboard reported. The mellow and dancey "Shape of You" was played 6,868,642 times and the nostalgic guitar-led "Castle on the Hill" was played 6,168,395 times.
