Ed Sheeran has premiered yet another single off his upcoming album, X.
“Afire Love” is a touching ballad that explores the recollections and emotions brought on by the loss of a loved one. The strong violin intro opens the song on a solemn tone, drawing you in to listen to Sheeran’s heartfelt lyrics: “I could look into your eyes until the sun comes up /And we’re wrapped in light, in life.”
“Afire Love” then closes out with a chorus of gospel choir-like “Ooo’s,” which ends out the somber record perfectly. The “Don’t” singer’s vocal arrangement and emotional vulnerability will undoubtedly make this one of the most memorable songs on the album.
Ed Sheeran’s X will be available for purchase on June 23. Check out “Afire Love” below.
