After his cutting-edge performance this past weekend at the Grammys, Ed Sheeran is building the buzz for his upcoming third album with the release of a third track from it. On his 26th birthday (today) the singer released “How Would You Feel” as a gift to his fans as well as to build even more anticipation for his new album Divide which is due out March 3rd.
The acoustic ballad tugs at your hearts strings with just a guitar, piano and Sheeran’s voice. But as he professes his love for an unknown lover, we can’t help but get all up in our feels about our own special someone.
The chorus of the song includes the lyrics “How would you feel If I told you I loved you/It’s just something that I want to do/I’ll be taking my time/Spending my life/Falling deeper in love with you /So tell me that you love me too” which makes many wonder who he is so in love with during this song as well as in “Shape Of You“, so that begs the question: could the UK crooner be seeing someone?
“How Would You Feel” comes shortly after Sheeran dropped his other two singles which smashed the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, making Sheeran the first artist to ever accomplish that feat.
The “Shape Of You” singer also became the first artist to debut in the top two spots on the UK Singles Chart in the same week, and he’s the first living British solo artist to hold the top two chart positions in the same week (The only other artist is John Lennon who posthumously did so in 1981).
Check out “How Would You Feel” for yourself, but just make sure you have a box of Kleenex nearby to soak up your tears.
