We've been waiting patiently ever since Ed Sheeran announced in December 2015 that he'd be taking a break from music to "travel the world and see everything" he missed.

And now he's back with not one but two brand new singles called Castle on the Hill and Shape of You. In an interview with BBC Radio 1 Breakfast show, Ed explained that Castle on the Hill was a love song about Suffolk where he grew up in.

"I've shot the music video actually in Suffolk and the cast of it are people from my high school," he said. "The main guy who looks just like me is weirdly from my sixth form." He also revealed that he had wanted to release his music in September last year but couldn't due to scheduling conflict.

"The funny thing is while I have music waiting to be released I usually end up playing it to random people," Ed added. "Normally when I've been out drinking I'll be like, 'Hey mate do you want to hear my new song?' That happens a lot."

Fans are speculating that his new album could be called Divide thanks to the teasers that he's been sharing since 1 January. In any case, we're just glad there's new music from Ed. Listen to the songs below and download them from iTunes here.
