Ed Sheeran explains how he wrote Sing
MMVA performer Ed Sheeran’s latest hit Sing is quite the departure from his past work. A more upbeat pop tune, featuring that sweet, sweet falsetto chorus, some might attribute its shift in sound and success to producer Happy star Pharrell.
When Sheeran stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, he revealed the real story behind the song and how it came to be. Turns out, as Sheeran explains, the British singer-songwriter almost passed on the beat, bass and drum line when it was first presented to him. But when Pharrell caught Sheeran fiddling around with the riff, he was assigned to sit down and come up with lyrics for it.
Sing was the second song Sheeran wrote with Pharrell and on his experience with the superstar producer, he only had good words to say: “It was amazing working with Pharrell, he brings out different sides of people that they didn’t know were there. He has a very clear idea of how to work it.”
