Ed Sheeran making his return to music with new song ‘Afterglow’

Over the weekend, the Grammy winner teased fans with an upcoming "Christmas present." Then on the morning of Dec 21, the new dad officially dropped a new song, Afterglow. Along with the track, the 29-year-old star wrote to his social media followers, "Hey guys. Afterglow is a song I wrote last year that I wanted to release for you. It's not the first single from the next album, it's just a song I love, and hope you love too. Enjoy!" As fans may recall, Sheeran and wife Cherry Seaborn welcomed their first child, a baby girl, in August. "A quick message from me as I have some personal news that I wanted to share with you," Sheeran wrote in a Sept 1 Instagram post. "Last week, with the help of an amazing delivery team, Cherry gave birth to our beautiful and healthy daughter - Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran. We are completely in love with her." Sheeran announced his daughter's arrival about one year after confirming his marriage to Seaborn on his 2019 album No.6 Collaborations Project.
