Currently on a break from the music industry, Ed Sheeran has dropped a surprise song for his fans titled 'Afterglow'.
"Hey guys. 'Afterglow' is a song I wrote last year that I wanted to release for you," Ed says.
"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."
Available on all DSPs, Ed has also released a music video for 'Afterglow' that was recorded as a one-take performance.
Ed's wife Cherry gave birth to their daughter, Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran, a few months ago.
