Who Is Ed Sheeran's "Supermarket Flowers" Song About?

You Need to Listen to Ed Sheeran's "Supermarket Flowers" If You've Ever Experienced Loss

Ed Sheeran released his first album in nearly three years, Divide, in early March, and we can't get enough. In addition to blessing us with hits like "Shape of You," "Galway Girl," and "Perfect," he also gave his fans an extraordinary gift with his song "Supermarket Flowers." The extremely emotional ballad is actually sung from his mother's point of view, who Ed explained lost her mother (his grandmother) while he was making the record.

The lyrics reflect the unimaginable loss he knew she must have been feeling (and still feel), and he wanted to honor his grandmother's memory by keeping it on the album. "That's the most special song on the record for me," the singer told DJ Zane Lowe during a radio interview. "My grandfather just turned to me [at the funeral], he was like you have to put that out, that has to go on the record. It's such a good memory, that's why it's ended up on there." For anyone who has experienced loss in their life, the song is beautifully therapeutic, capturing the big sadness felt by doing the smallest of things. Listen to it now above.
