The ‘Perfect’ hitmaker gave us another love ballad we didn’t knot we needed. Titled ‘Afterglow’, it has the lyrics, melody and harmony, perfect for a winter-time cuddle with your special someone.
‘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 / Oh I won’t be silent and I won’t let go / I will hold on tighter ‘til the afterglow,” he sings in the chorus while strumming away on his guitar in a dimly lit video with vast twilight meadows featuring as the perfect backdrop.
Ed announced the surprise song launch on Sunday. Sending it out as a ‘Christmas present’ to all his fans, he also clarified that this track is not a part of his new album.
“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,” Sheeran said in his social media post.
Sending out early greetings and well wishes to his fans, he said, “Have a safe and happy festive break and New Year’s. Back to dad land for me now, ciao.”
Ed and wife Sheryl secretly welcomed a daughter together. The proud dad made the happy announcement on September 1st with a post that read, “I have some personal news that I wanted to share with you… Last week, with the help of an amazing delivery team, Cherry gave birth to our beautiful and healthy daughter – Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran. We are completely in love with her. Both mum and baby are doing amazing and we are on cloud nine over here.”
Last December, the singer announced that he would be going on a break from social media after an exhausting two-year tour that commenced in 2017.
