Grammy award-winning popstar Ed Sheeran released two new songs Friday after a year off.
The British singer-songwriter dropped two singles – "Castle on the Hill" and "Shape of You" – on music streaming services Spotify, Apple Music as well as online stores iTunes and Google Play.
Prior to the release on Friday, Sheeran released a 30 second snippet of the track hidden in a Snapchat lens.
Sheeran has returned to social media after a year's absence, posting clips across Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat.
The two tracks are from his upcoming album called ÷ (Divide), continuing the mathematical theme of his previous albums + (Plus) and x (Multiply).
Sheeran had a big year in 2016 winning a number of awards including two Grammys for his hit song "Thinking Out Loud".
Fellow musicians and celebrities tweeted their pleasure at Sheeran's new tracks.
