Ed Sheeran has unveiled another new song from his forthcoming album, Divide (stylized as ÷). The vocalist released the tender “How Would You Feel (Paean)” on Friday, which doubled as his 26th birthday.
Earlier in the week, Sheeran began teasing the release of a brand new song by the end of week and on Wednesday, he revealed the songs title on social media. “‘How Would You Feel (Paean)’ comes out tomorrow at midnight wherever you are in the world,” he wrote on Twitter. “It’s not the next single, but is one of my favzzzzz.”
As the name indicates, the intimate song is an ode to both love as well as a lover, with Sheeran crooning, “How would you feel/If I told you I loved you?/it’s just something that I want to do/Taking my time/Spending my life falling deeper in love with you.”
His SNL appearance preceded Sunday’s striking performance of his Number One hit “Shape of You” at the Grammys. Both tunes debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard 100, indicating the very first time an artist has debuted two singles in the Top 10 simultaneously.
Sheeran’s approaching third LP, Divide, will be released on March 3rd via Atlantic Records.
