The video will premiere on The X Factor this weekend

Amazingly, the video will be shown just one day after the new single is recorded tomorrow (November 15), according to BBC News.

Footage from the superstar-filled recording session will be streamed live to fans on an official app and this will then be used to create the music video, which will be edited "in record time".

Ed Sheeran performs in Amsterdam - 3 November.

Profits raised by the single will be used to fund relief efforts to fight the spread of Ebola in West Africa.
