Ed Sheeran Just Blessed Us With Not One But Two New Singles

Ed Sheeran Is Coming Out with New Music Release This Friday Ed Sheeran's cryptic blue message means something

His Friday releases "Castle on the Hill" and "Shape of You" answer: pretty much right where he did before, but with a just enough additional edge to keep his songs interesting in an increasing crowded and competitive musical scene.

While it has taken a while before the red-haired singer resurfaced with his two new songs today, he has not been totally absent from view.

Ed Sheeran arrives at BBC Broadcasting House, London, ahead of his appearance on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show. He also shot it in Suffolk, describing the track as "a love song" for the county.

"Tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass as I rolled down / I was younger then", Sheeran sings over a mounting drumbeat. He sings about being "In love with your body" in the chorus, and this could be Ed's sexiest single ever!

On Thursday, January 5 (Friday, January 6 in Manila), he released "Castle On The Hill" and "Shape of You".

While one person tweeted, "All of a sudden I have straight A's, my ugliness is gone, I'm smart, I have a reason to live thanks to Ed".

Feast your ears on the beauty of "Castle on the Hill" above.

"Fans have heaped praise on Sheeran's new material, commenting on Twitter: "#EdSheeran has done it once again, never changes and gives us the most attractive songs, thank you @edsheeran for sharing your talent", while another said: "I'm in love with your new single "shape of you" it's really handsome". "I really wanted to show two different sides to my music that I'm equally passionate about", he said in a statement.

His two latest tracks, which premiered on a host of streaming services and via lyric videos on YouTube, are from a forthcoming album expected to be called - (Divide), following his debut album + (Plus) and sophomore release x (Multiply). "See you all next autumn, and thank you for being unbelievable". Shape of You, written with Johnny McDaid and Steve Mac, is more of the familiar Sheeran sound, crossing dancehall influences with expertly tooled minimal R&B.

"I don't know what the theme on the next album is yet because I haven't made it".
