Ed Sheeran has a history of surprising fans all around the world, and his most recent antics are nothing short of fantastic.
The Shape Of You hitmaker, 32, uploaded a stunning video of himself singing his decade-old song Wake Me Up to a tearful fan.
Along with the touching video, Ed described how he is recording a live version of his next album Autumn Variations in the homes of his followers.
Yes, you read it correctly: the acoustic icon will visit his fans’ homes and, surprise!, record the album in their living rooms.
However, when Ed saw a piano on this particular visit, he couldn’t help but give his mega-fan a unique performance.
As her hero sat down at her piano, the excited fan hastily cleaned away some receipts and garbage to offer the megastar a clean surface to play on.
Ed started singing, and the fan visibly choked up, miming along to parts of the songs with tears in her eyes.
‘I haven’t played this in like 10 years,’ said Ed of the song, which is from his 2011 album ‘+’.
Taking to the caption of the video, Ed wrote: ‘So I did some surprise pop up gigs in fans houses, secretly recording a live album of Autumn Variations where each song is recorded in a different fans living room, but all of it was a total surprise. We got to @kariconaway ‘s house at the end of the day, and I instantly knew it was gonna be a fun one.
‘They had cats, friendship bracelets and some fruit drinks to start, but once I’d played the Autumn song I said take me on a tour, and when I went into her room I saw a piano.
‘She asked if I could play and I said ‘not really but I kinda play on wake me up’, so here I am playing Wake Me Up, for all the Plus fans out there.
‘The fan living room live Autumn Variations album coming soon, proper album out 29th September go preorder you legends x.’
This comes after the Perfect singer performed a performance of his new song Magical at a fan’s wedding.
The celebrity has even been known to surprise school assemblies and to bust out his guitar in local taverns. You know, just for kicks. What an icon.
Autumn Variations, the star’s second album of the year, is set to be released on September 29.
