Atlantic is gearing to launch “Perfect” as the next single from Ed Sheeran’s album “Divide.”

One pop radio station is already supporting the song.

According to Mediabase, New Haven’s KC101 played the song 8 times during the seven-day window between August 14-20.

“Perfect” is receiving even more support at the hot adult contemporary format. Cincinatti’s Q102 played it a whopping 61 times during the aforementioned seven-day period, and Chicago’s 101.9 fm (25), Seattle’s Star 101.5 (19) and San Francisco’s Star 101.3 (13) also contributed a substantial number of spins.

“Perfect” will be the follow-up to “Castle On The Hill,” which reached the Top 5 at hot adult contemporary and Top 10 at pop.
