Ed Sheeran runs through the pubs and streets with actress Saoirse Ronan in the new video for “Galway Girl.” Sheeran shot the video himself from the first-person perspective on location in Galway, Ireland.
The clip opens with the singer leaving a concert and immediately heading to a bar where he grabs a drink and runs in to Ronan. After Sheeran accidentally lands a dart in some bloke’s back, the pair take off and roam the streets, running in to fans who have Sheeran sign a cast – and a copy of his recent Rolling Stone cover story. Elsewhere, Ronan gives Sheeran a fresh tattoo – which turns out to be his already infamous “Galway Grill” mark.
After the ink settles, Sheeran and Ronan grab one last beer, though at the bar the singer accidentally spills his drink on the same fellow he stabbed earlier with the dart. Sheeran takes a swift punch to the face and blacks out, but wakes up the next morning with Ronan in a house overlooking the ocean.
“Galway Girl” appears on Sheeran’s new album, ÷ (Divide), which arrived in March. Sheeran will kick off a North American tour in support of the record June 29th in Kansas City, Missouri.
