“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.”
This is how Ed Sheeran described his latest release, which looks to us as though it was unplanned.
A one-take music video was also released for the song.
The star last shared new music with 2019’s star-studded ‘No.6 Collaborations Project’ album, which saw him team up with the likes of Stormzy, Justin Bieber, Camila Cabello, Cardi B and more.
“Have a safe and happy festive break and New Year’s. Back to dad land for me now, ciao x,” the singer concluded!
