Ed Sheeran raised excitement among Sheerios this morning when he posted a tweet suggesting that the visuals to x track “Photograph” are on the way.
My next single from multiply is Photograph. Wait til you see the video, it's a special one. Very excited

Sheeran gave a touching performance of the song, about capturing a shared moment with someone you love, at VH1 Storytellers in Dublin this past November. He also revealed that he had written the song in Kansas City with Johnny McDaid while touring with Snow Patrol.
“I was making a Lego Star Wars thing and Johnny was writing an email to his sister. He had this loop,” Sheeran told the Storytellers crowd while playing the loop he referenced. “I started humming, and then he put a beat behind it, and we finished the song within about half an hour and didn’t really know what we’d done until the next day when we listened back to it. And then we recorded it.”
While you wait for the music video for “Photograph” to be released, watch Sheeran perform the emotionally charged track live in the clip.
