Ed Sheeran offers up two new songs to the heavens

Ed Sheeran has stopped toying with us and finally released a new single. Two, in fact. We’re saved! ‘Castle On The Hill’ and ‘Shape Of You’ are both out now.
“Hello 2017”, said Sheeran in a statement. “I’ve been working hard on the new material and I hope you can be as excited about it as I am. I really wanted to show two different sides to my music that I’m equally as passionate about and I just knew I wanted to roll with two songs at the same time. I’m absolutely buzzing to be back”.
As 2017 is a mere concept, invented by humans in an effort to make sense of the world, it is unable to process Ed’s words or his excitement. You might be interested though. Thinking about it, he probably should have addressed all that to you in the first place.
I’m not sure what the rules are for actual people listening to this new music, but I’m sure no one would notice if you quickly snuck a listen to them both. Here are ‘Castle On The Hill’ and ‘Shape Of You’:
