"Shape of You" singer Ed Sheeran has given fans an early Christmas present with the release of a surprise track titled "Afterglow" - his first new song in over a year.
In it he sings, "We were love drunk waiting on a miracle/Trying to find ourselves in the winter snow/So alone in love like the world had disappeared."
Sheeran shared the song on his Instagram with an accompanying video, "Hey guys. Afterglow is a song I wrote last year that I wanted to release for you. It's not the first single from the next album, it's just a song I love, and hope you love too. Enjoy ! Have a safe and happy festive break and New Year's. Back to dad land for me now, ciao x"
