After a year-long break, Ed Sheeran has returned from the halls of fatherhood with a new single Afterglow. Accompanied by a captivating performance video, this is the perfect Christmas present.
Following a December 2019 announcement that he would be taking a break from touring and social media, Ed Sheeran has returned in full force.
Announcing the single on Instagram, the songwriter shared that, although Afterglow is not the first single from the (potential) next album, it’s a song that he loves deeply. We can see why.

Afterglow’s lyrics are raw and moving: “This is a level where we’re losing track of time, I’m holding nothing against it, except you and I … we were love drunk waiting on a miracle.”
I did not expect to be emotionally destroyed by a new @EdSheeran song today, but I’ll gladly take it. #Afterglow pic.twitter.com/VEgoD9a0NJ
