As he unveiled the new song with a clip on his Instagram page, he told his 31million followers: “Afterglow is a song I wrote last year that I wanted to release for you.

“It’s not the first single from the next album, it’s just a song I love, and hope you love too. Enjoy!

“Have a safe and happy festive break and New Year’s. Back to dad land for me now, ciao x”.

In the loved up lyrics of Ed’s new song, he detailed his memories from the trip to the South Pole.

He sings: “Stop the clocks, it’s amazing, you should see the way the light dances off your hair.

“A million colours of hazel, golden and red, Saturday morning is fading. The sun’s reflected by the coffee in your hand, my eyes are caught in your gaze all over again.”

Ed adds: “We were love drunk waiting on a miracle, trying to find ourselves in the winter snow.

“So alone in love like the world had disappeared, Oh I won’t be silent and I won’t let go. I will hold on tighter, ’til the afterglow.”

Ed’s musical comeback received more than 3million views on Instagram while some fans commented to thank Ed for his new track.

One wrote: “Thank you Ed for bringing some joy, this is just what we needed. Wishing you a Merry Christmas.”

Ed and Cherry began dating in 2015 after meeting in school. The couple then announced their engagement in January 2018 as he shared a loved up snap of the couple.

He wrote in the caption: “Got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well.”

The couple then married in a low-key ceremony a year later in January 2019. It was then revealed in August this year that the couple were expecting their first child together before Cherry gave birth in September.
