Ed Sheeran turns 26 today, and to celebrate another year of cranking out tunes, he's let loose a new one from his forthcoming album, Divide.
After the dance pop of "Shape of You" and the anthemic rock of "Castle on the Hill," "How Would You Feel (Paean)" marks a return to Sheeran's classic balladeering. It's another slow, sweet love song from the singer's seemingly inexhaustible supply of romantic vibes.
In addition to crooning like a pro, Sheeran also gets to flex his guitar chops on the new track, which features a nimble acoustic riff and a super-smooth electric solo. He's also released a live video version of the song in which he duets with a pianist and hits a few extra-high notes.
It's good to know that he hasn't completely reinvented himself for this album.
