Ed Sheeran

When Ed Sheeran broke his arm after falling off his bicycle two months ago, he apparently didn't even realise the severity of his injuries. In fact, he revealed to Ellen DeGeneres that he just carried on on his way to the pub with his girlfriend Cherry Seaborn.

New Zealand Prime Minister Quizzes Ed Sheeran Over Citizenship Request


Ed Sheeran

UK fans of Ed Sheeran may potentially have to wave goodbye to their idol one day, as he has expressed a deep love of New Zealand with the capital city being his favourite place in the world. He's even jokingly requested citizenship, with the country's Prime Minister only too happy to invite him - but only if he answers some important questions about the nation.

As nostalgic as the 26-year-old singer-songwriter seemed to be about his hometown of Framlingham, Suffolk on his single 'Castle on the Hill', it seems the place he really wants to live is Wellington, New Zealand. He recently revealed that it's his all-time favourite city, and he even requested citizenship this year but didn't hear back.

Anne-Marie's Collaboration Criteria


Ed Sheeran

Anne-Marie decides on a collaboration based on the song and not the artist.

The 'Ciao Adios' hitmaker doesn't just pick the biggest name to work with on a song but instead will pick a track which speaks to her like 'Rockabye' did.

Asked what she looks for when she decides whether to collaborate with an artist, she told NME: ''I just listen to the song. It doesn't even matter to me who it is. If the song connects with me and is like a really great message, I love doing it. When I heard 'Rockabye' I was just blown away.

Ed Sheeran's 'Perfect' Video Is So Cheesy, But We Love It


Ed Sheeran

Christmas is the 'Perfect' time of the year for cheesy videos; and, indeed, if Ed Sheeran had dropped the video for his new single any other time we'd be uber-cringing. Luckily for him, we're starting to feel rather festive, so romantic cliches are totally allowed.

Ed Sheeran at the Q AwardsEd Sheeran at the Q Awards

The singer appeared alongside 'Before I Fall' star Zoey Deutch in the 'Perfect' visual, which dropped today (November 9th 2017). It depicts two friends who confess their romantic feelings for each other during a holiday ski trip, and every single ridiculously romantic thing that doesn't happen in real life, happens. If only life was this idyllic.

Why Ed Sheeran's Next Album Could Be A Folk Release


Ed Sheeran

It might not be a mainstream sound, but Ed Sheeran got some serious airplay for his folk-tinged third single this year 'Galway Girl'. There is something of a traditional edge to the chart hero's music, which has got us wondering if he's preparing us for a stripped back full-folk release next.

Ed Sheeran at the Q AwardsEd Sheeran at the Q Awards

So 'Galway Girl' might not be a purely folk aesthetic, despite the fact that it was co-written and co-performed by the Irish band Beoga, but that's not the only thing that's convinced us he could be heading for a brand new sound.

Ed Sheeran Forced To Cancel Asian Tour Dates After Bike Crash


Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran has confirmed the news that his worldwide legions of fans will have been dreading – the bicycle crash he suffered over the weekend has meant that he will be cancelling some live gigs on his world tour.

The 26 year old singer suffered a nasty accident at the weekend in London when a car knocked him off his bike, causing him to break his right arm and fracture his wrist and elbow, meaning both of his arms are in slings. Obviously, it’s left him unable to play guitar, and fans with tickets for his tour dates have been nervously awaiting updates from the star

Sold-out concerts in five Asian cities over the coming month have been cancelled, as the Asian leg of his current world tour for multi-million-selling third album Divide is due to kick off on October 22nd.

Ed Sheeran Breaks Arm In London Bicycle Crash


Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran had a lucky escape when he got knocked down by a car while out riding his bicycle in London last week, getting away with just a broken arm. Still, a break this bad could have a major impact on his forthcoming Asian tour dates.

No details regarding the accident have been released, apart from that fact that he was hit by a car while riding down a London street, according to The Mirror. But regardless of what happened, he plays the guitar right-handed, so we can't imagine a scenario where he'll be able to play on his next tour dates

Ella Eyre Won't Write About Ex On New Tracks


Ella Eyre Rixton Ed Sheeran

Ella Eyre won't be writing about her ex-boyfriend in her new music.

The 23-year-old singer insists she won't be heading in the studio to get over her split from Rixton's Lewi Morgan because it was the ''most uninteresting break-up ever''.

She said: ''I'm friends with all my exes and Lewi is one of them. I'm still in touch with his family and his band is coming back with new music, so I'm checking up on that to see how it's going. The way me and Lewi split up was so mutual, calm and respectful. I'd struggle to write an interesting song about it because it was the most uninteresting break-up ever!''

Ed Sheeran's Promoter Turned Away From Viagogo After Confronting Them Over Ticket Touting


Ed Sheeran

The battle against ticket touting has escalated after Ed Sheeran’s promoter, along with two MPs, was turned away from the London offices of ticket re-sale site Viagogo when they confronted the company with a letter and questions regarding their practices.

They had travelled to the London HQ of Viagogo’s parent company VGL, accompanied by disappointed and irate customers who claimed the company had ripped them off by adding huge fees to the face value of a ticket, as well as VAT. However, Conservative MP Nigel Adams and Labour MP Sharon Hodgson were both told the police would be called if they didn’t leave the premises.

The company is accused of hiking the prices of tickets by up to 34% through hidden fees that only become apparent when a customer clicks through the site to payment details.

'Game Of Thrones' Director Defends Ed Sheeran Cameo


Ed Sheeran Game Of Thrones

After his cameo appearance in ‘Game Of Thrones’ this weekend that sharply divided viewers on social media, the show’s director has come to Ed Sheeran’s defence saying that the singer is a “lovely performer” who “deserved to be there”.

In fact, the reaction was such that 26 year old Sheeran quit Twitter altogether in the wake of the season premiere of the seventh series of ‘Game of Thrones’ on Sunday night (July 16th). However, the HBO fantasy show’s director, Jeremy Podeswa, has told The Daily Beast in a new interview that he felt Sheeran’s appearance was appropriate.

Podeswa admitted he was “a bit surprised that people have made that much fuss about it… he looks right in the show; he fits into the fabric of the show.”

'Game Of Thrones' Hate Forces Ed Sheeran To Deactivate Twitter Account


Ed Sheeran Game Of Thrones

He gave us fair warning, but Ed Sheeran has finally decided to scrap his Twitter account altogether now after a stream of hate messages following his 'Game Of Thrones' cameo. There was barely enough screen time for him to have had a poor performance, but that didn't stop his biggest critics.

Ed Sheeran performs at the 'Today' showEd Sheeran performs at the 'Today' show

We have a feeling that Ed's brief spell as a singing soldier in season 7 of 'Game of Thrones' was meant to be a tongue-in-cheek moment for the series, but there were a lot of people out there who felt angry about his involvement in the episode 'Dragonstone'. As a result, he's shut down his Twitter account in a bid to stem the flow of hate.

Ed Sheeran Writes Songs For Jess Glynne


Ed Sheeran Jess Glynne

Ed Sheeran has written some songs for Jess Glynne's new album.

The 'Shape of You' hitmaker stormed the charts earlier this year with his comeback LP '÷' following 12 months away from the spotlight but, despite his busy schedule, the flame-haired hunk has still managed to find some time to pen two tracks titled 'Thursday' and 'Woman Like Me', for Jess' forthcoming record as she's hoping to emulate his success when she drops her new sound later this year.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''After the success Jess enjoyed with her first album, she has been able to pick and choose who she works with but was delighted that Ed came on board. His offerings are set to be major components of Jess's album - his songwriting and her distinctive sound are a perfect fit.''

'Why Do They Hate Me?' Ed Sheeran Leaves Twitter Over Baffling Hate Messages


Ed Sheeran

Poor Ed Sheeran's been having a really tough time since his Glastonbury appearance. He has faced so much criticism online that he has made the momentous decision of leaving social media altogether - at least for now. His fans will surely be disappointed, but the trolling is getting out of hand.

Ed Sheeran at the iHeartRadio Music Awards 2017Ed Sheeran at the iHeartRadio Music Awards 2017

The 'Castle on the Hill' singer played a sensational set as the Sunday headliner at Glastonbury last month, but despite his popularity he has still received an influx of hateful abuse on Twitter. It started out with accusations that he was using a backing track throughout his performance rather than playing live (when he was actually using a loop pedal) and culminated in many telling him that he wasn't worthy of the Glasto slot in the first place.

UK Singles Chart Changes Rules To Prevent 'Ed Sheeran Effect'


Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran shattered all sorts of chart records earlier this year when his latest album Divide was released, with all 16 of its tracks hitting the UK Top 20 singles chart at the same time.

However, it’s now unlikely that anybody else will emulate such a feat, or even come close, after the Official Charts Company announced changes to the rules surrounding the compilation of the charts, particularly regarding the weighting given to streaming.

Ed Sheeran headlined the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival this weekend and you'd be hard-pushed to find a more rocking acoustic set anywhere. To a 200,000 strong crowd, he played a mixture of his biggest hits as well as the lesser known numbers from the likes of 'Divide' and 'X'.

Shaun Ryder Argues Ed Sheeran's Success Is Due To Industry


Shaun Ryder Ed Sheeran

Shaun Ryder believes Ed Sheeran's ongoing chart success is due to how the industry now works.

The Happy Mondays and Black Grape singer insists the charts are ''irrelevant'' so doesn't really care that the 'Shape of You' singer recently had a record-breaking 16 tracks in the top 20 singles chart and his latest album 'Divide' has been at the top of the charts since its release.

He told NME: ''I'm fine with how Ed did it, I have no problems with that.

His hits are some of the most riotously popular of the 2010s so far, but Ed Sheeran has revealed that songwriting holds another, much more utilitarian purpose for him than just for making money – he writes as a “form of therapy”.

The 26 year old English singer appeared on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Desert Island Discs’ programme this week, in an episode that will be broadcast on Sunday (May 7th), but a teaser clip ahead of the full show reveals that the flame-haired icon writes in order to pick himself up when he’s feeling down.

Returning to the small screen a little later than usual this year, hit fantasy series 'Game of Thrones' - based on the best-selling novel series 'A Song of Ice and Fire' by George R R Martin - will be going into its seventh season with a lot of questions to answer. Now with Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) on the Iron Throne (with nothing much left to lose), there are many different directions the series could go in.

Ed Sheeran Recalls Hitting Justin Bieber With A Golf Club While "Hammered"

Ed Sheeran will have gone up even further in some people’s estimations, recently divulging that he accidentally hit Justin Bieber in the face with a golf club while he was “hammered”.

The 26 year old English singer, currently promoting his third album Divide which is released worldwide on March 3rd, gave an interview to The Guardian in which he recalled some of the random things he’s been up in the last year.

He was out partying in Japan with Justin Bieber, when they decided to visit a golf course to round off their evening. As you might expect two guys high on life (one on booze too), a dare followed.

Ed Sheeran Urges Fans Not To Buy Tour Tickets From Touts


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.

Many thousands were left disappointed when tickets for Sheeran’s first UK concerts in two years went on sale earlier this week, only to sell out in a matter of minutes. Just moments after that, the only possibility of catching the gigs was to pay up to £1,000 via second-hand sites, a massive hike from the face value of £77.

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'.

Ed SheeranEd Sheeran makes a nostalgic return to Suffolk

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.

Yesterday (January 2nd) the 25 year old singer suggested in a short gif video that his third album could be coming out this Friday, writing underneath in the caption that there would be an announcement or release on “6 January, 5am GMT”.

The micro-clip sees a ‘subtract’ sign turning into a ‘divide’ symbol and then a colon, seemingly confirming speculation that the new album would be called either ÷ or -, in keeping with the mathematical theme of his first two records + and x.

Ed Sheeran Teases Some Details About His Third Album


Ed Sheeran Adele

Ed Sheeran has dropped a big hint about the possible release date of his next album – and it could see him come into direct competition with Adele when it comes to awards season!

The British singer-songwriter, still enjoying huge success with his second record X, released 16 months ago, has announced that his record label is weighing up the possibility of a September 2016 release date for the next one. However, Sheeran himself is sceptical as it would mean competing with arguably the biggest star in the world.

“Adele is releasing her album in the same Grammy category,” the megastar told Billboard about the prospect release date of a new record. “I don't know if I'm brave enough to go up against her.”

'Jumpers For Goalposts' Sees Ed Sheeran At His Most Humble [Trailer]


Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran's exhilarating Wembley shows are revisited with his brand new documentary/concert film 'Jumpers For Goalposts'; for which the premiere took place at London's Leicester Square last night (October 22nd 2015). The film is set to play in UK cinemas throughout the weekend - so don't miss it!

Along with the world premiere of the film, Leicester Square also hosted a special performance by Ed Sheeran, which was subsequently broadcast in theatres throughout the world. The movie is coming to the general public this weekend, giving UK audiences who were unfortunate enough to miss him live their first glimpse into his x Tour; and, even better, their first glimpse into his biggest ever show. Not only that, but the film also documents his life on the road; a familiar place for Sheeran, who sofa-hopped throughout the country in the early days of his career.

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
