Ed Sheeran Reminisces on His Teen Years in 'Castle on the Hill' Video: Watch

Ed Sheeran heads to his hometown of Framlingham in Suffolk, England, for the nostalgic "Castle on the Hill" video. The singer relives his blissful and slightly awkward teen years throughout the bittersweet clip, as he follows a red-headed younger version of himself and his lively friends.

Watch above as the buddies guzzle down beers, smoke cigarettes, kick back on rolling grass fields, throw a wild house party, having bonfires and the 19-year-old experience his first kiss on a Friday night. Sheeran revealed he chose the teenagers featured in the video for a reason. “Loved filming this in Fram," he tweeted. "All these kids are actually from my high school!”

The British star shared both "Castle on the Hill" and "Shape of You" earlier this month, which are the first tastes of his forthcoming ÷ (Divide) album. Fans can look out for that on March 3. But if you're getting too impatient, check out the full tracklist here.
