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

Mumford And Sons Josh Groban Zac Brown Band Taylor Swift Sam Smith Ed Sheeran

As was widely expected, folk-turned-rock group Mumford & Sons have raced to the top of the American Billboard charts, selling nearly 150% more than its nearest rival in the process. Wilder Mind, their third album, sold 249,000 copies in its first week to claim the Number 1 spot, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The figure isn’t anywhere near as large as the first week sales for their last record Babel, which shifted a whopping 600,000 units back in 2012, and remains the biggest sales week for a guitar album this decade.

Having been part of the music industry for a huge number of years, Jamie Lawson is hard at work on recording his third album.

According to Lawson, the two met several years ago, but he was asked to support Sheeran during his secret Dublin tour last year. He explained "from that, he took me on part of the UK tour and part of the Europe tour, and I think over that time he'd been thinking about making a record label for a while". From there, Lawson continued to say that signing to the label was a "no-brainer".

Ed Sheeran Takes "Careerist" As Compliment, Not Insult


Ed Sheeran Noel Gallagher Drake Taylor Swift

He’s one of the biggest musical acts in the world today and could be forgiven for living a life of excess, but Ed Sheeran is determined to keep his feet on the ground and not let his career slide away.

During a new interview with the Big Issue, Sheeran addressed Noel Gallagher’s infamous recent criticism of new artists being “careerists” and too focussed on the financial side of their music, and it would seem that he takes the label as a compliment.

Ed Sheeran

The seemingly unstoppable Ed Sheeran has revealed that he feared his recent Australian tour would have to be scrapped due to vocal problems. He blamed air conditioning and extensive travelling by plane on his voice deteriorating over the course of the tour.

He told the Sydney Daily Telegraph: “It was scary. It was a difficult tour in that respect, a lot of air conditioning and a lot of flying dries you up. I had to be more sensible than I usually am.” However, he chose to power on with the tour and cut out drinking and partying in order to preserve his vocal cords.

Rock group Alabama Shakes scored their first Number One album in America with their second effort Sound & Color, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

In quite a low-selling week, the rockers sold 96,000 copies of their sophomore effort to reach the top spot in the Billboard 200 chart. The reformed system counts track equivalent sales and streaming equivalent sales, though some 91,000 of Sound & Color’s sales total came from traditional physical sales.

Alabama Shakes’ debut album Boys & Girls won the group a lot of plaudits upon its release in 2012 for its classic rock sound. It peaked at Number 6 in the American charts, nearly a year after its release, due to its three Grammy nominations in 2013.
