Happy New Year! Welcome to 2017! Thank God we left 2016 behind. What with all the horrible celebrity deaths and shocking worldwide events such as the rise of Trump and Trumpism in the United States of America, a large number of people in the world were relieved to be trading in 2016 for 2017 in the hope of a better, more reasonable year.

However, somehow, 2017 seems to be starting off in a rush and it is difficult to pin exactly how the year will turn out. On the one hand, there is a lot of skepticism but on the other, hope for better days continues to surge through.

Particularly for fans of English singer-songwriter, Ed Sheeran, the year 2017 could not have began on a better note, as the artist took to Twitter to announce that he will be releasing new music on Friday, 6th January 2017.

Sheeran made the announcement just before noon on New Year’s day with a video post of himself holding a cardboard paper with the words, “New music coming Friday!!” written on it.

The video has gone viral with many fans retweeting and sharing it as a symbol of hope for better things to come in 2017.

It is the second day of the year, there are three hundred and sixty-three days left in the year, and four days till Ed Sheeran’s great new year gift.

The world is eager, waiting and watching in anticipation of a wonderful 2017 that blows 2016 out of the water in an attempt to cancel all bad thoughts and memories of that year completely out of our lives.
