Ed's music video for Castle on the Hill is here! It's a love letter to hisĀ adolescence, and the track just got an equally nostalgic video.

The singer returned to his hometown of Framlingham in Suffolk, England to film the video, where he's joined by a cast of teenagers as they drive fast cars and party around a bonfire. And to find a young redheaded actor to play his teenage self, Sheeran visited his old high school, Thomas Mills, to scout his doppelganger.

Sheeran showed off his likeness to the video's star in a side-by-side Instagram post.
