WATCH: Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” Music Video

Ed Sheeran released the music video for the third single of X, “Thinking Out Loud” today. The music video is sensual and romantic.

With folksy, country edge, this will charm the socks off of anyone that listens to it (see also “Never Looking Back”). Guaranteed. Gentlemen, please take notes: this is what your girlfriend wants to hear. If you’re looking for…
