Titled "Sing," the Pharrell Williams-produced track is the first cut off Ed's forthcoming sophomore album, "Multiply." In an interview with "Rolling Stone," Ed says the lyrics were inspired by a real-life experience about sneaking alcohol into a dry industry party. Sheeran's latest takes on a more uptempo style than his Grammy-nominated "A Team" tune.
Ed delivers lyrics about a girl who proves she's "a keeper" by handing him "a bottle of water filled with tequila." Rick Rubin and Benny Blanco also had a hand in the new album, which Ed recorded last year in Los Angeles.
"Multiply" is due out on June 23rd.
