Track Description
"Tenerife Sea" is a song by English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran. It was co-written by Snow Patrol member Johnny McDaid and Foy Vance, and features production from Rick Rubin. The song was released on 20 June 2014 as part of his second studio album, x. It entered the UK Singles Chart at number 93 despite lacking an independent release.

Sheeran wrote "Tenerife Sea" while in Nashville, the capital of the US state of Tennessee. It was inspired by the events following the 2013 Grammy Awards, wherein his single "The A Team" was nominated for Song of the Year, a first Grammy nomination for Sheeran. He lost the award to the American band Fun for its song "We Are Young". Along with his girlfriend, Sheeran attended the after-party where he, being in a new experience, felt uninterested participating in the conversations. According to Sheeran, "neither of wanted to be there - you just want to be with this one person". He also told The San Francisco Examiner: "It was a very odd atmosphere, where everyone was out for themselves. And I found myself being competitive, as well, and pissed off that I didn’t win, which felt very unhealthy."

The song's title is a reference to Tenerife in the Canary Islands of Spain. According to Sheeran, the hue of his girlfriend's eyes are as blue as the seas in Tenerife, "seriously blue, like electric blue". The lyrics speaks of Sheeran's girlfriend who he sees "really pretty" in her dress.
