Singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran turned 26 today, and like the innovative Aquarius that he is, he turned his birthday around and gifted his fans with a new song. Written and produced by Sheeran himself, "How Would You Feel (Paean)" evokes serious nostalgia about falling in love, a common thread in his music that still somehow manages to not be tired.

The song is from Sheeran's upcoming album Divide (written as ÷), and follows the release of leading singles "Castle on the Hill" and "Shape of You." Although Sheeran says the song won't officially be released as a single, he found it important enough to tell listeners on Twitter that "How Would You Feel" is one of his "favzzzzz."

After performing at this year's Grammys and Saturday Night Live last week, Sheeran decided to bless us again with a live performance of the new track. Thanks Ed!

Divide is out March 3. Check out "How Would You Feel (Paean)" below.
