Today is Ed Sheeran’s 26th birthday, and the pop superstar is celebrating by giving US a present. He just released the third track from his upcoming album ÷.

The track, which is titled, “How Would You Feel (Paean)” is likely to become 2017’s “unofficial wedding song.” Trust us if you’re heading to a wedding this year you will hear this one.

Listen up, gentlemen: if you’re trying to impress a lady, this romantic ballad is basically what every girl wants to hear a guy say. Right, ladies?

The chorus is just so PERFECT for all special celebrations of love when Sheeran sings:

How would you feel if I told you I love you?
It’s just something that I want to do.
I’m making my time, spending my life, falling deeper in love with you.
So tell me that you love me too.




By the way, we weren't sure what paean meant either, but it does appear in the song's title. So in case you weren't sure like us, we looked it up for you. Paean means that is a song expressing triumph or thanksgiving. Aww, Ed!  

Sheeran says that while the track won't be his next single it is one of his favorites from the new album. Ed Sheeran’s new album, ÷, comes out on March 3. You can pre-order it now on iTunes. Go, ahead, pre-order it now.

Let’s also celebrate his birthday, by asking the British heartthrob for some love advice. We got "In Bed with Ed" earlier this week, and we asked him which of his lyrics are best for getting someone to join you in bed? His answer was one that lovers everywhere should be making note of in this exclusive video:
