Ed Sheeran's album "x" (read as multiply) is the singer/songwriter's
second studio album. The lead single "Sing", which was inspired by
Justin Timberlake, features production and additional vocals from
Ed Sheeran is blessed - he seems to know exactly where he is going, and exactly
how to get there. Where countless others fail to make an impression amid today's
information overload, Ed's music and talent cut straight through. He has a poise
that is as welcome as it is unusual in someone so young. He's both utterly
self-assured but still charmingly open.
When asked to conform or "assimilate", Ed chose to make his own way in the music
business. He wrote the cult song, You Need Me, I Don't Need You', and over the
next year, he released five EPs, each one totally different, each one totally
him. There was a singer-songwriter one, a live from The Bedford one, one written
with singer Amy Wadge. Each sold better than the last.
After two years of constant gigging and sofa surfing, Ed recorded a live version
of You Need Me, I Don't Need You' for leading urban YouTube channel, SBTV. The
clip got 100K hits in two days and is now approaching 1.5M views. A few days
later, he wrote what would become his first major label release, The A Team': a
story about a girl he met whilst working at a homeless shelter which has since
surpassed 1M views.
By the time Ed released the final EP - No. 5 Collaborations, which featured the
who's who of UK hip hop and grime: Devlin, Wretch 32, Dot Rotten, P Money, JME
and Wiley, the support was so strong it propelled Ed to Number 2 in the iTunes
album chart after just 24 hours. The only artist selling more copies was Rihanna.
When Elton John called his mobile to congratulate him, Ed realized quite how big
things had got. Amid interest from numerous labels Ed shortly signed with Asylum
- part of Atlantic Records.
