It's still just under two months to go until Ed Sheeran releases his new album =.

But to wet fans appetites, the British singer-songwriter has just shared a teaser of his second new single 'Shivers.'

Taking to social media to share a snippet of the song, the 30-year-old also shared an animated video of a sparkling yellow butterfly leisurely flapping its wings.

Detailing how the upcoming single came to be, the 'Perfect' hitmaker revealed 'Shivers' was meant to be the leading single from his upcoming album.

"So my second official single from my 4th studio album is called 'Shivers', and it's out September 10th," Sheeran wrote.

"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," he continued.

"'Shivers' always felt more autumnal. I hope you like it, I bloody love it. The video is wild, but you'll see that next week."

Sheeran's last solo album was 2017's Divide which spawned the hits 'Shape of You' and 'Galway Girl.'
