The 25-year-old singer was appearing on BBC Radio 1 and belted out the new track, which is going to be featured on his upcoming album. He also stopped by Magic Radio on Friday morning (January 6) in London, England.
Ed also opened up about the song “Shape of You” and how he thought of Rihanna while writing it.
“['Shape of You'] is actually a really random one because I went in to write songs for other people with a guy called Steve Mac and Johnny McDaid, and we were writing this song and I was like ‘this would really work for Rihanna,’” Ed said. “And then I started singing lyrics like ‘putting Van The Man on the jukebox’ and I was like ‘well she’s not really going to sing that, is she?’ And then we sort of decided halfway through that we were just going to make it for me.”
