Well, just into the New Year and we already have a reason to love 2017: Ed Sheeran is releasing new music!
That’s right, readers, everyone’s favourite ginger-haired musician is back! The released a quick nine-second video on his social media pages teasing that some “new music” would be coming out this Friday.
This message comes more than a year since Sheeran’s last post, which announced that he was taking a break from social media to re-invigorate and re-focus himself as a musician and person.
But judging by these reactions, Sheeran’s fans certainly didn’t take a break from him.
