We're eagerly waiting for Ed Sheeran's Divide to drop and we've had "Shape of You" and "Castle on the Hill" on repeat since he surprised everyone with the new tunes just a few weeks ago. According to our poll, most of you like "Castle on the Hill" best and lucky you, Ed has just released the music video for the track!

A nostalgic video for an equally sentimental song about adolescence—hanging out with mates, getting your first kiss, and wanting to go back home where it all happened. Doesn't it make you want to call up your childhood friends for a much-needed reunion? If the video feels legit, it's probably because Ed actually cast students from his high school!

What are the odds that there's a teen that looks exactly like Ed—minus that scar on his cheek—from his former high school, right?

Are you excited to hear the rest of the record, too? What do you think of the music video?
