In celebration of his 26th birthday, global ED SHEERAN shares “How Would You Feel (Paean),”– a brand new song from his highly anticipated album “÷” (pronounced divide), which will be released on March 3rd via Atlantic Records. “How Would You Feel (Paean)” is available now at all DSPs and streaming services, and joins singles “Shape Of You” and “Castle On The Hill” as a third instant grat track that comes with pre-orders of “÷.” Watch the accompanying live performance video for “How Would You Feel (Paean)” above & pre-order “÷” now.
Written and produced by Ed himself, “How Would You Feel (Paean)” is a beautifully orchestrated ballad, showcasing Ed’s profound songwriting and impeccable guitar playing. The release of “How Would You Feel” follows a whirlwind week for Sheeran which included electrifying, national television performances on Saturday Night Live (“Shape Of You”/”Castle on the Hill”), The 59th Grammy Awards and The Ellen DeGeneres Show, all over the course of just a few short days.
The Grammy-winning singer/songwriter celebrates another amazing feat as his two new singles “Shape Of You” and “Castle On The Hill” have been certified Platinum and Gold respectively by the RIAA, becomingthe only two songs released in 2017 to receive certifications this year thus far. “Shape Of You” climbs to the #1 spot on the Top 40 radio chart while also sitting on top of the Billboard Hot 100 for its third week. Likewise, the hit single is #1 on iTunes “Overall Songs” chart, and both Spotify’s Global and U.S. Top 50 charts, while remaining the #1 artist worldwide on Spotify.
Sheeran was recently announced as a performer at the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards, taking place in Los Angeles on March 5th. The show will be televised live at 8pm ET/5pm PT on TBS, TNT, and truTV. Additionally, the awards show will be simulcast on iHeartMedia stations nationwide, as well as on iHeartRadio, the all-in-one digital music and live streaming radio service.
