X will be Ed Sheeran's sophomore album, and his first since + was released in 2011. He announced on Twitter that the album will be released around the world on June 23!

The first single off X is the immediately catchy song "Sing," which was recorded with producer Pharrell Williams, who seems out to create yet another instant classic!

The song has a hooky R&B beat with a funky bass riff and chunky acoustic guitar with notes of bongos in the background.

The song beckons fans to sing in the title, and it's tough to resist the urge to sing right along!

Ed said that the track was inspired by Justin Timberlake, and it's not tough to see the resemblance, even if Ed really makes the sound his own. Listen below and tell us what you think of the new track at SweetyHigh.com!
