Truth rating: 10

Ed Sheeran’s new song and music video “I See Fire” premiered on Tuesday.


The track is from the highly-anticipated Peter Jackson movie, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and will play over the film’s end credits.

The clip features footage from both the movie and Sheeran performing the song in a recording studio.

“I got the chance to produce and play all the instruments on it apart from the cello. Managed to learn violin for a day, hope you all dig it,” Sheeran wrote on Twitter.

He went on, “Big up Peter Jackson and his team for giving me the opportunity.”

Sheeran noted that it’s first solo song in two years — but won’t be on his new album, as it’s just a special single for the hit film franchise.
