When Ed Sheeran posted a photo with Courteney Cox back in 2013 we thought, “Wow, that’s random. But all celebrities must know each other.” Wrong. Early yesterday, Sheeran posted a tweet announcing that Cougar Town will premiere a snippet of his brand new song on their final season. Was this whole friendship just a drawn out plan to drop an amazing new song in the sneakiest way possible? Everything makes sense now…
Here’s the dated hint Sheeran dropped long before yesterday’s announcement:
My friend Courteney is nominated for a People Choice Award for favourite cable tv actress. She’s never won one before and she lets me live in her beach house, so how’s about we all vote for her and win her the damn thang eh? Safe. Vote here please kind people – http://www.peopleschoice.com/pca/vote/votenow.jsp
And here’s the official tweet from yesterday:
usa people, cougar town have a brand new never before heard song of mine on their show today, tune in !

Luckily for you, we have the audio clip so you don’t have to sit through an episode of Cougar Town (no offense). Listen to the song below.
