Listen to a preview of the second single from Ed's upcoming album Equals.

Ed Sheeran has announced details of his new single, titled Shivers.

The second single from Ed's forthcoming album = (Equals) will be released on September 10. Listen to a preview of the song below: 

Shivers follows Bad Habits - currently at Number 1 on the Official UK Singles Chart for nine weeks and counting - and Top 5 album track Visiting Hours.

Sharing news of the single on Instagram, Ed said: "So my second official single from my 4th studio album is called Shivers, and its out September 10th. I wrote this as soon as the Divide tour ended in a rented farm in suffolk where we had set up a studio for a couple of weeks to see what happened.

"It was written over the course of 3 days which is very different for me, but I felt it was too special to get wrong. it was originally meant to be the first single but I just didn't see a world where Bad Habits existed if it didn't come out in the summer. Shivers always felt more autumnal. I hope you like it, I bloody love it. the video is wild, but youl see that next week."

Shivers is one of 14 songs for Equals that were written and recorded across Suffolk, London, Sweden and LA. Production on the record comes from Ed Sheeran, FRED (No.6 Collaborations Project) and Johnny McDaid (Divide).
