We’re so excited! Ed Sheeran released his first solo single in two years on Nov. 5, and we’re already hooked! Listen and watch the music video below.

As if we weren’t already squirming with excitement for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug to hit theaters this December, Ed Sheeran announced that his new song will be featured in the hit film!

Ed Sheeran: ‘I See Fire’ Song & Video Released

There’s something about Ed’s voice that completely draws us in — and his new song is no different!

On Nov. 4, Ed took to Twitter to share the big news:

In the new video, we get to see Ed, 22, hard at work in the studio. It’s not a fancy video, but instead a raw look into his recording process. It flashes to clips of the film which is a nice sneak peek for us, as well as a look of the real Ed!

As he said on Twitter, Ed got the chance to play instruments he hadn’t before. We see him on the violin, which was extremely impressive.

We also see him with Peter Jackson, the creator of both The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings movies.

So, HollywoodLifers — what do you think of the new video? Are you excited to see the film? Let us know!
