Ed Sheeran vamps it up in Bad Habits music video

Ed Sheeran has released his new single 'Bad Habits'.

Ed Sheeran stars as a glamorous vampire on a wild night out in the music video for his new single.

The singer released 'Bad Habits' on Friday, his first song without a collaborator since 2017.

For the accompanying video, Sheeran transformed into a creature of the night, complete with ghostly white skin and fangs.

Sheeran, wearing a pink suit and with glitter around his eyes, flies over a computer-animated crowd of crazed pedestrians running through the streets. He and his fellow ghouls enjoy a night of excess while the singer indulges in ketchup, a favourite treat of his. Sheeran later comes face-to-face with an animated version of himself, which appears to deflate after smashing through the front window of a car.

"My bad habits lead to late nights, endin' alone, conversations with a stranger I barely know," Sheeran sings on the track.

The video ends with the rising sun transforming Sheeran back into his usual form.

The 30-year-old discussed his "bad habits" on Zane Lowe's Apple Music 1 show.

Telling the host about getting healthier since welcoming daughter Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran in August, he said: 

I've made changes but I've done it in like the Hollywood way of being just like, 'I'll just stop eating carbohydrates for four months or something like that'. Whereas now, like I haven't actually changed my diet in any way, other than just stopping excess. Like I still have beer, but I won't have 10 pints. I'll have like three and I still have burgers, but I won't have two, I'll have one.

'Bad Habits' will feature on Sheeran's upcoming fifth studio album.
