Get ‘Singing’ with this Ed Sheeran inspired playlist!
Ed Sheeran’s follow up to his groundbreaking album + is still over a month away, so in the meantime we’re going to keep our ears busy with this playlist inspired by Sheeran. From his collaborators to the people who supported him in the early days, here’s a playlist inspired by your 2014 MMVA performer Ed Sheeran.
Watch Sheeran, along with performers Ariana Grande, Hedley, Imagine Dragons and Lorde, as well as presenters Chloe Grace Moretz, Kellan Lutz, Jena Malone, Tyler Posey and co-hosts Kendall and Kylie Jenner at the 2014 MMVAs on Sunday, June 15 at 9E/6P, airing on Much, CTV and CTV GO.
Sheeran had been gaining momentum in his career for a few years, but it was his friendship with Taylor Swift and subsequent spot opening for her RED Tour that really gave the UK singer/songwriter a push into the international limelight.
Ed has stayed busy between albums by writing for other artists, one of which being the boys in One Direction. Sheeran penned their hit track Little Things off their sophomore album Take Me Home.
Pharrell teamed up with Ed on his sophomore album X, even appearing in the video for the album’s first single, Sing. If these two together can’t make an album go number one, no duo can.
In addition to Pharrell, Sheeran also worked with legendary music producer Rick Rubin, who advised the young singer to record the album acoustically and add extra instruments later on. I think if Rick Rubin tells you to record in the middle of a swamp, you do it.
It’s been seven years since we last had a new album from Hilary Duff and former Disney star is ready to step back into the recording studio, already snagging Sheeran to help write some tracks on her upcoming album.
In addition to Duff, Sheeran has also recently worked with Jessie Ware, helping to write a song to appear on her follow up to 2012’s Devotion.
For his upcoming June 23rd album X, Sheeran has stated that he’s moving more towards a pop sound, citing Justin Timberlake’s early solo work as a big inspiration.
On a trip to LA in April 2010, Sheeran hoped to get some notice for his music and did. While playing an open mic night, he caught the attention of Jamie Foxx, who let Sheeran use his personal recording studio for the remainder of his trip.
Before he went on a worldwide tour with Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran gained exposure as the opening act for Snow Patrol’s North American tour in 2012.
