Before the song begins, a written message from the star appears on the screen in black and white.
In it, the 31-year-old Grammy winner explains that he filmed the video in Kyiv before “the devastating acts of violence began”.
“It was my first time visiting the country and I felt so welcomed…” he said.
“Ukraine is a proud and resilient country and I am grateful to have had the chance to shoot my video there.
“I support Ukraine and will donate my record royalties from the video’s YouTube streams to DEC. [The Disasters Emergency Committee] Humanitarian appeal for Ukraine,” added the singer.
The 2step track is the latest from Sheeran’s “=” (pronounced “equal”) album, which he released in 2021.
