With an Assist from Pharrell, Ed Sheeran Can ‘Sing’
By Courtney E. Smith
This unlikely duo have teamed up in honor of Sheeran’s latest single and apparently he’s ready for more than sad songs on an acoustic guitar.
“Sing” is the first track off Sheeran’s forthcoming album, x, or Multiply, which will hit stores on June 23 and weirdly, shares the same one-letter title as Chris Brown’s album coming out in May. Awkward.
Sheeran told Rolling Stone that he wrote over 120 songs in preparation for his sophomore album and in addition to recording with Pharrell, also cut tracks with Rick Ruben and Benny Blanco. All of which indicates we might have a less introspective and more bombastic Sheeran experience all around this time.
