Verge’s Artist of the Week: Ed Sheeran

Last night, Ed Sheeran released his feature in Rudimental’s song “Lay It All On Me”, tweeting, “This is my final thing I’m releasing for a while. Bad news if you like me, great news if you don’t. We cater for everyone at SheeranCorp”, making it clear, also through twitter, he will not be releasing any more music until he releases his third full album.

After spending the last couple years touring with Taylor Swift, releasing X, and then headlining his own international tour, he will be hunkering down to do some intensive work for his new album, which has no established release date.

Besides being on tour with his own music, he has been involved with numerous collaborations with major pop artists. From The Weeknd to Christina Perri, Macklemore to Hoodi Allen, to his most recent collaboration with Rudimental, he has come a long way from being homeless, surfing couches, in Central London where he got his start. Being an acoustic singer/songwriter, with a wide range, smoky voice, and an affinity for the loop pedal, he quickly made a name for himself in the music biz the past 4 years, winning over fans by staying true to his sound, uniquely sound-tracking their love stories, and telling the story of his struggle with his cleverly honest lyrics.

“You’d find me busking on the street when it was cold outdoors, now I’m sweating on the stage of a sold-out tour”

Though there is no new music from him on the horizon, something that can get you through this dry spell is his new movie Jumpers for Goalposts, a live concert film of his X Tour at Wembley Stadium, which will feature an exclusive performance live from the world premiere in London’s West End. Premiering live from London’s Green Carpet on Oct .22nd and in select cinemas worldwide Oct. 23-25. Tickets on sale now! More information at
