If you were a fan of Ed Sheeran's smash hit 'Thinking Out Loud', then you are going to love his version of the love song as Gaeilge.

RTE 2fm's The Eoghan McDermott show played the world exclusive of the track - which took the number one slot on its release in Ireland - this afternoon. 

The Irish recording of the track which also spent a full year in the UK top 40 is the lead single for the upcoming album CEOL 2016 le hEoghan McDermot.

The album also features songs sung in Irish by Kodaline, Ham Sandwich, Delorentos, The Coronas, The Riptide Movement and many more.

Here's our Ed Sheeran lyrics video for 'Ag Smaoineamh Os Ard'.

McDermott told RTE: "Getting Ed Sheeran to record a bespoke version of one of the biggest songs in the world is incredible,"

"The fact he is singing as Gaeilge makes it all the better!

"Ed and the host of other incredible musicians on our CD shows that the use of the Irish language is being revolutionised at the moment, particularly in music.

"This album shows that anyone can speak as Gaeilge and that we should all give it a go."
