Must List

#NewMusicMonday: Ed's new music video, Troye's "Heaven" + more!

Monday morning got you down? Ed Sheeran, Maya J, Troye Sivan and Ryan Adams are here to help! Ed’s just-released music video for “Castle On The Hill,” Maya J’s “Symptoms of You,” Troye's new “Heaven” music video and Ryan's "Doomsday" are starting the week off right. Check out all these Monday-saving tracks and videos below!

Ed Sheeran’s music video for “Castle On The Hill”

We were so excited when Ed released two new singles and announced the March release of his album ÷ (pronounced divide, if you were wondering). While the wait until the album feels like forever, at least we have the brand new music video for “Castle On The Hill” to tide us over! The video was shot on location in Ed’s hometown of Framlingham, England, which proves to be the perfect moody, nostalgic setting for the coming-of-age song, and it features a young Ed, teenaged antics and, of course, a castle. 

Maya J’s “Symptoms of You”

L.A. native Maya J is bursting onto the music scene with her new single “Symptoms of You.” This insightful ballad about heartbreak will give you all the feels and have you singing along with this up-and-coming pop star's powerful voice. If you love this song as much as we do, get ready for Maya’s next single, "Come Find Me," which will be released March 8. With all this fresh music, you can rest assured you'll be hearing much more from Maya.

Troye Sivan’s music video for “Heaven” ft. Betty Who

There’s no better way to start off the week than with an inspiring video. That’s where “Heaven” comes in. The song is about reconciling religion with sexual identity, a theme that is close to Troye’s heart as an openly-gay artist. To really make an impact, historical footage of the LGBTQ movement is spliced throughout the video, and he even released the video on Friday, the day of President Trump's inauguration. The video’s message is simple: be proud of who you are. 

Ryan Adams’ “Doomsday”

Known for covering Taylor Swift's 1989 in its entirety, Ryan's new single “Doomsday” is the soulful, catchy answer to Monday blues. From his album Prisoner, which is due for release on Feb. 17, comes this romantic, 80s-inspired rock song. Fifteen albums and countless hits don’t lie—this is definitely a single you’ll want to take a listen to.
