Ed Sheeran's new track 'How Would You Feel (Paean)' tells the story of a pair of lovers.

The 'Castle on the Hill' hitmaker unveiled the third track off his hotly anticipated LP 'Divide', a ballad which could be a sweet ode to his girlfriend and childhood crush Cherry Seaborn.

The track begins with a sweet message to his love: ''You are the one, girl / And you know that it's true / I'm feeling younger / Every time that I'm alone with you,'' before he tells of the time they spent ''sitting in a parked car, stealing kisses in a front yard''.

The song then segues into the the chorus, where Ed confesses he is ''falling deeper in love'' with the girl.

He sings: ''How would you feel / If I told you I loved you / It's just something that I want to do / I'll be taking my time / Spending my life / Falling deeper in love with you / So tell me that you love me too.''

The song - which could no doubt rival his smash hit 'Thinking Out Loud' - also features a stunning guitar solo, which will certainly be loved amongst fans if Ed opts to play the song when he tours the UK and Europe.

And on the track - which has thrilled fans across the world - Ed talks about spending summer with the girl of his dreams.

He sings: ''In the summer / As the lilacs bloom / Blood flows deeper than a river / Every moment that I spend with you

''We were sat upon our best friend's roof / I had both of my arms around you / Watching the sunrise replace the moon (sic)''

The 26-year-old flame-haired singer confirmed the new track wouldn't be released as a single as he took to social media to unveil the song.

He wrote on the microblogging site: ''How Would You Feel (Paean) comes out tomorrow at midnight wherever you are in the world, its not the next single, but is one of my favzzzzz (sic)''
