A music video to accompany the release of "Give Me Love" was first released onto YouTube on 9 November 2012, at a total length of four minutes and twenty-six seconds. The video stars Australian actress Isabel Lucas. The video deals with the idea of Cupid. Cupid (Lucas) is seen watching over couples, she is then seen using her bow and arrows to ignite people's passion for each other. So after watching many human intimate displays through her work, Cupid becomes overwhelmed with the need to find someone of her own to love and for them to love her in return. She tries to remove her wings, pulling a feather from her back (reminiscent of a scene in Black Swan) and toys with one of her arrows. The end of the video echoes the beginning, a cop (Christian Kinde) is seen going into a crime scene which turns out to be Cupid's lair. It is revealed that she stabbed herself with her own arrow and is seemingly dead. However, her arrows are not lethal, they just make you fall in love, so when the cop leans in for a closer look, the love effect of the arrow makes her wake up, and it is implied that she will fall in love with him since he's the first person she sees upon waking.
On 11 November 2012, Sheeran performed the song on The X Factor results show.
