If Sheeran does well, “Shape of You” will need a guest line from Jay-Z.
“We kept in touch,” Sheeran says. “I sent him a song and he said, ‘I don’t think this song needed a rap part.’ He was probably right. He had a very good ear. He always gets things right. It was a natural and respectful pass.
Sheeran doesn’t see the point of music critics in the age of streaming.
“Why do you have to read reviews? Listen to it, available for free! Decide for yourself. ‘I’m not going to listen now.’”
He composed the music for the animated musical he “I’ve been working on Netflix for about two years.”
“I got advice,” he says, “and I’m really excited about it. And write a lot of songs.” He expects the songs to come out on their own album. which is one of the many albums that he has already worked on
He wanted to slow down his commute a bit when his kids were in school.
“I don’t want to homeschool my kids,” he says (he has two: two-year-olds and eight-month-olds). “I love the way country artists do it. They do the warrior thing on the weekends where they go out and play on the weekends. Obviously not possible in America because I live very far from America. But it is certainly possible in Europe. Just go play Frankfurt on Saturday night and come back.”
Although he began to include full bands for some of the songs on the tour, But he has no plans to abandon setting guitar plus pedal loops as the heart of his concerts.
“I feel like every step of my career “When we move into the theatre, into the arena, into the stadium, it’s always a conversation. And then the gig happened and it wasn’t necessary. It just keeps getting bigger with loop pedals. That’s because people like acting. So I’m not going to take that component off. It’s very common in my genre to use loop pedals. But at the level I’m doing, it’s not common. Why cut off its identity?”
with his new album He has fulfilled his recording contract. And he’s not sure how he’ll release the next song.
“It depends,” he says. “I’m pretty busy right now because this is my last album with Warner. So I don’t know what to do next. Honestly, like yes, I might as well make a record independently. It might be fun, just want to try.”
Sheeran “doesn’t believe in the genre.”
“I think it doesn’t sink in to what you started out as,” he said. “I think there are two types. It’s good and bad. And I don’t think kids don’t believe in the genre anymore either. Now it’s just a playlist and the kids love it. I love this artist’s songs. and i like this artist’s song And probably Skrillex next to Doja Cat after Kendrick Lamar.”
He consistently uses Heinz’s own hot sauce, Tingly Ted’s, which debuted earlier this year.
“I did a ketchup commercial,” he says, “and they wanted me to do another one. They said, ‘We should do another ketchup.’ ‘I really want to make sauce with you’ It’s spicy, but the older I get. The less I like simple things.”
There was still a visible scar on his face from the bizarre incident where someone accidentally cut him with a sword at a party.
“It was deep,” he said. “I had seven or eight stitches, I thought it hit my eye! It’s not that far, is it?” I stood behind the first one and I got a slap in the face. I didn’t know I had been beaten until I looked down and saw my shirt covered in blood. empty room And the next thing I know I’m in the hospital. A security officer took me.” (Sheeran never accidentally confirmed the identity of the attacker. although it is widely reported to be a member of the British Royal Family)
“Blow,” a 2019 hard rock hit he collaborated with Bruno Mars and Chris Stapleton, is one of his most sleepy songs. But he believes it will come someday.
“I feel like when people see Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars, they’re like, ‘Oh, that must sound (sure),’” says Sheeran, who plays Lenny Kravitz-like songs regularly. “It’s not like that. atAt some point, people will find it and it will be made into a superhero movie or something.”
