Ed Sheeran took to Instagram on New Year's Day to announce the release of new music from his upcoming album, speculated to be titled Divide, on Friday. Sheeran ultimately supplied two singles expected to appear on his third record, "Shape of You" and "Castle on the Hill."
The last single released by Sheeran was "Photograph" in 2015 off his second album, Multiply. On the Instagram post introducing the new songs, Sheeran stated, "Cause I've been away for a bit here's two singles rather than one."
Below are the lyrics for both "Shape of You" and "Castle on the Hill" from his new album, which hasn't been given a release date.
