Ed Sheeran

In the aftermath of fan anger that the only tickets available for his upcoming British tour are at absurdly inflated prices via second-hand sales websites, Ed Sheeran has called on his fans to snub greedy ticket touts who are flogging on tickets.

Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran takes a nostalgic look back at his younger years in a music video released today (January 23rd 2017) dedicated to his hometown of Framlingham, Suffolk. It's the companion for his song 'Castle on the Hill'; one of the first singles from his third album 'Divide'.

He may have sung 'I won't stay put, give me the chance to be free/ Suffolk sadly seems to sort of suffocate me' on his song 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You' from his debut album '+ (plus)', but these days he has a lot more love for the county that raised him and proved it with his latest single 'Castle on the Hill'. The lyrics remember him breaking his leg while playing as a child, his first kiss, drinking, smoking and misbehaving with friends, and reflects on what those old friends are doing with their lives now as Ed roars down country lanes to return home.

Ed Sheeran Fined After Being Caught Speeding


Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran has reportedly accepted a fine of £100 and three points on his driving licence, after being caught speeding at 70 miles per hour in a 60 mph zone near his home in Suffolk last week.

The 25 year old star, on the comeback trail having just released two brand new singles from his upcoming third album, was caught driving 10 miles an hour over the limit near Framlingham in his Aston Martin DB9.

Ironically, it happened just a couple of days after the local constabulary criticised Sheeran for encouraging speeding and dangerous driving in one of the new songs. ‘Castle On the Hill’, which the singer described as a “love song for Suffolk”, features the lyrics “driving at 90 down those country lanes”.

Ed Sheeran has been teasing his fans about the title of his forthcoming new album on social media, as well as providing possible clues about some of the lyrics with some cryptic Twitter posts.

Ed Sheeran: Jumpers for Goalposts Trailer


In July of 2015, Ed Sheeran played his biggest gigs to date, selling out Wembley Stadium to tens of thousands of his most loyal fans. When asked where the name 'Jumpers for Goalposts' came from Ed explains 'because we keep on moving them' explaining that when he hits one target, the bar is continuously being risen.

When Atlantic Records first signed Ed Sheeran, it's easy to believe that even they didn't envisage his rise to fame to hit such heights in a short amount of time. Since the release of his debut album + in 2011, Ed's had a number of number one singles and both albums have hit the top of the chart in the UK with his follow-up X finally giving him a number one album in the states (in 2004) reaching Platinum status in the UK, US, Australia, Canada & New Zealand.

Jumpers for Goalposts will be available to watch in select cinemas from October 23
