Ed Sheeran performs at Air Canada Centre on Sept. 20, 2015 in Toronto, Ontario.

Ed Sheeran's song "Shape of You" already has a live acoustic version, thanks to Capital FM.

When the British singer-songwriter stopped by the radio station for an interview Tuesday, he brought his guitar with him to sing listeners one of his two new tracks -- which happened to be the first live "Shape of You" performance he's ever done.

Stripping down the fast-paced hit, Sheeran recreated the danceable melody with just his guitar strings that almost makes the Divide song sound like a completely new tune. And with the addition of a brief Britney Spears "Oops! I Did It Again" homage toward the end, this first live performance is bound to make Sheerios excited to hear it in person themselves.

In addition to "Shape of You," Sheeran also offered up live performances of "Castle on the Hill" during other radio station visits. Watch both below.

Divide will be available March 3, Sheeran announced Thursday morning (Jan. 12).
