Ed Sheeran is pretty much the coolest guy ever. In a very neat expression of his love for his Irish lineage, the ginger singer recorded "Thinking Out Loud" in Irish Gaelic, the historic language of Ireland.

Eddie sang a translation of the hit song for the Irish radio station Raidió Rí Rá annual Gaelic-language album. And like the pro he is, seems comfortable singing in the language.

The British singer-songwriter has often expressed his affinity for Ireland (though he's from the UK, his lineage is Irish). He has some Gaelic tattoos, peeps.

Irish Gaelic, or Gaeilge, is still taught in Ireland, but often as a second language, with most Irish people primarily speaking English. It's totally a nice gesture of Ed to bring international attention to an often forgotten language, and provide the people of Ireland the experience of hearing an international pop star sing in their ancestral language for the first time.

Listen to "Thinking Out Loud" in Gaelic, below:
