By  | 

Ed Sheeran has marked his 26th birthday by releasing a song that he completely forgot he had written.

Describing the track – How Would You Feel (Paean) – as one of his favourites, he admitted he had to work fast to fit it into his upcoming album after discovering it hidden in his girlfriend’s email inbox.

Speaking to Zane Lowe on Beats 1, he said: “My partner came back to Suffolk and on her way to the airport I wrote that song, recorded it on an iPhone, sent it to her and forgot about it.”

When his Divide album was completed, he explained how he asked girlfriend Cherry Seaborn what her favourite track was and she said: “My favourite song you don’t actually know exists.”

After she played him the forgotten tune, he said: “I went in and recorded it very quickly and produced it all up and it’s one of my favourite songs on the record.”

Ed fans have described the song, which starts with the lyrics “You are the one, girl”, as his best love song so far.
