Ed Sheeran releases new single Afire Love
Ed Sheeran has released “Afire Love” as the new single from his forthcoming sophomore album, “X” (pronounced “multiply”).
The song is a dedication to Sheeran’s grandfather, who battled with Alzheimer’s for 20 years before his death last year.
Due June 23, the record is the follow-up to the smash 2011 debut, “+.”
The album’s lead single, “Sing”, was issued earlier this spring.
Sheeran has been playing shows ahead of the new album’s release; the singer/songwriter has a few festival concerts on the schedule this month with live dates already booked into late November.
