After a brief hiatus following the release of his debut album, Ed Sheeran is back with an incredible new album “X” featuring the incredible track “Afire Love”!
Sheeran, wrote the track about his late Grandfather’s passing from Alzheimer’s disease. Whilst discussing the track, Ed stated that he finished writing it at the funeral of his late Grandfather.
The latest track from the red head is certainly one of his best, yet emotional to date!
With an emotional chorus of his grandfathers’ words, Afire Love is guaranteed to bring a few tears to your eyes. The track goes onto talk about how Ed’s grandfather became a victim to the disease and how he no longer recognized his grandson.
However, this is not the first and will not be the last time Ed has paid tribute to his grandfather, after matching his tie with his Gucci suit at the Grammy Awards back in February.
Ed’s album “X” is to be released on June 23rd.
