Ed Sheeran released two new singles late Thursday night. The new songs quickly — and predictably — soared to the top of the US iTunes sales chart.

As of 1:40AM ET, Sheeran’s new “Shape Of You” is #1 on the listing. “Castle On The Hill” is #2.

Per an Atlantic press release, “Shape Of You” was co-written by Sheeran, Johnny McDaid and Steve Mac. Steve Mac produced the song, while Sheeran is credited as a co-producer.

Sheeran and Benny Blanco wrote and produced “Castle On The Hill.”

“Hello 2017! I’ve been working hard on the new material and I hope you can be as excited about it as I am,” said Sheeran regarding the new music. “I really wanted to show two different sides to my music that I’m equally as passionate about and I just knew I wanted to roll with two songs at the same time. I’m absolutely buzzing to be back.”
