Castle on the Hill is one of Ed Sheeran’s two brand new tracks released in January 2017 from his upcoming third studio album. Sheeran chose to return with not one but two brand new tracks, ‘Shape of You’ and ‘Castle On The Hill’. The meaning behind Castle on the Hill refers to paying homage to Suffolk, England-where Ed Sheeran grew up. The castle on the hill Ed speaks about is a real structure in Framlingham, Suffolk.

The songs were posted on streaming and download services in the early hours of Friday morning, with Sheeran commenting: “Hello 2017! I’ve been working hard on the new material and I hope you can be as excited about it as I am. I really wanted to show two different sides to my music that I’m equally as passionate about and I just knew I wanted to roll with two songs at the same time. I’m absolutely buzzing to be back.”
I am a big fan of Ed and have been eagerly awaiting his new music, I hope you all enjoy my version!
