Ed Sheeran has revealed two deluxe edition tracks from his forthcoming album x.

One of them should sound familiar to fans: In 2012, Sheeran performed a previously unreleased song during a concert in New York’s Irving Plaza. At the time, it was titled “Hold On.” Now on x, though, the song is named “Even My Dad Does Sometimes,” referencing the opening lyric: “It’s alright to cry / even my dad does sometimes.” Another, “Shirtsleeves,” is a polished pop-rock ballad where Sheeran vows to be just as romantic as he is in x tearjerker “Photograph,” offering to dry a love’s eyes.

Hear these x deluxe edition tracks after the jump.
