Ed Sheeran has denied claims that he is cultural stereotyping in his songs about Ireland on his new album Divide.

The Galway Girl singer was criticised for some of his tracks during the week, but Ed backed it all up by saying he was writing from experience.

He told Dermot and Dave on Today FM: "I’m telling you, every time I’ve been in Ireland I’ve ended up at a lock in where people sing and dance.

"And every single time an Irish woman has out-drunk me. So I’m not stereotyping a culture. This is what I’ve experienced."

And speaking about trad music, Ed said he'd like to keep it alive in his tunes.

"What I would like to happen is that this becomes the norm now. Maybe this is the start of something.

"The way that Planxty and The Chieftains were massive in their time, I would like that to be a similar thing now.

"I grew up on trad music. I got to have tea with Christy Moore which was pretty cool. I have a great love for Ireland and the Irish culture.

"I came here four times a year for pretty much all my life and this is actually the biggest market for me in the world," he added.

As it's his 26th birthday today, Ed Sheeran decided to release one more track from him new album, Divided.

Fans have been eagerly anticipating the next drop from the album, and with Ed's birthday gift to us, the wait is finally over.

The song, How Would You Feel (Paean), is officially available on Spotify, and the tender tune is pulling at our heart strings.

Between Shape of You, Castle on the Hill and now his latest track, Divided is a major contender for our favourite album ever. 

Ed Sheeran has had a pretty busy few months since his return from a 365 day social media sabbatical.

Since then, the two other released singles from his new album have reached number one in the charts, and the singer sold out a world tour in mere minutes.

Now, if only Ed would add some more Irish dates to his tour so we could hear How Would You Feel in real life, that would be great.
