Ed Sheeran is back on social media teasing two new singles that were released yesterday at midnight.


The singer took a hiatus from all social media accounts, citing wanting to see the world away from his smart phone screen. He returned exactly one year later on Dec. 3, posting a cryptic photo of just the color blue, clearly a hint at his newest project. Sheeran has been working on his third album, and has declared it “is the best thing I have made thus far.”

Then every day of the new year, the singer has posted a quick teaser for his new album, finally resulting in clips of two new songs, “Castle on the Hill” and “Shape of You.” He even posted a few song lyrics for them as well.

Finally last night, Sheeran released a 10 second mashup of his two songs, one with an upbeat marimba style, the other much more dramatic.

Listen to both songs below.
