PRINCE HARRY and Ed Sheeran were the protagonists of a hilarious misunderstanding in a video filmed to mark World Mental Health Day. Speaking about their new album Spectrum, which is due out on November 15, Filan said “We spent 14 months making this album, which is the longest we’ve ever spent making an album. And there’s 11 songs on the album.
Prince Harry was left in shock when pop star Ed Sheeran told him it is time for gingers to “stand up” and “fight”, hilarious footage shows. The Duke of Sussex and the world-famous singer came together to mark World Mental Health Day, filming a short video that will surely grab the attention of many.
But for an album that’s meant to display comfort and fluency across a host of lines, there are several moments where Sheeran is singing about how he doesn’t fit in. I’m at a party I don’t wanna be at,” he sings at the top of the hit I Don’t Care,” a feather-light bop about social anxiety performed with Justin Bieber. We don’t fit in well ’cause we are just ourselves,” he sings on Beautiful People,” a duet with Khalid.
But can he rap, though? That’s a relevant question on this album, on which Sheeran inserts himself into increasingly unlikely formations. Rapping before, not after, Eminem on Remember the Name” just seems like a smart policy. On Take Me Back to London,” Sheeran lands just this side of absurd, boasting, It’s that time, big Mike and Teddy are on grime.” Big Mike is Stormzy, the grime ambassador , who does an admirable job of rapping ferociously but politely enough to not upstage the host.
In fact, according to Official Charts, by the end of 2018 Sheeran had sold over 3 million copies of the album and the Official Charts weekly album ranking declared that it was the 20th most popular album for the week May 6, 2019.
Ed Sheeran invited me in to his home and we spoke for hours. We spoke about Ed’s introduction to the music industry and how talent only gets you so far because without a dedicated work ethic, nothing will work. Nearer the end of our conversation we also talk about what Ed wants to do with his time moving forward. Future projects and plans. It’s not every day that you get an insight in to the life of one of the most successful artists in the world. I hope you enjoy listening to us chat.

In 2017 Sheeran announced the release of his third album ‘÷’ (‘divide’). The album went straight to number one in the UK and became the fastest-selling album by a male solo artist in the UK. He released two singles from the album: ‘Shape of You’ and ‘Castle On the Hill’. The singles entered the UK Singles Chart at number one and two respectively, making history as the first artist to ever achieve the top two positions at the same time. He then released ‘How Would You Feel (Paean)’ as a promotional single and it charted at number two. ‘Galway Girl’ was then released as the third official single and this also went to number two. These releases, on top of the fact that streaming tracks are counted in the singles charts, meant that Sheeran celebrated holding nine of the top ten songs in the UK Singles Chart in one week, with all 16 songs from the album also entering the top 20.
Told that Sheeran had actually been trying to write a song about this to get it out to more people”, he added: I was about to say, someone with your skillset to be able to write lyrics on a song to raise awareness, that would be amazing.
Ed Sheeran has embraced the rock ‘n’ roll vibe of his recent track Blow,” which features Bruno Mars and Chris Stapleton The music video for the song, directed by Mars himself, showcases an all-female rock band taking over the stage at Los Angeles venue the Viper Room.
Staff at the shop hope the well-worn footwear will fetch as much as $362 from fans wanting to literally follow in Sheeran’s footsteps, The Sun reported.
Brutal. Not even Sheeran’s hated Lannister soldier deserves a fate worse than death. But that’s par for the course in Game of Thrones. Plus, at least Sheeran survived a lot longer than It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star Rob McElhenney.
Songs like Photograph and Thinking Out Loud were a bit understated. Again, the quality of the songs allowed for a successful delivery. However, a song like Thinking out Loud is one for the ages. People will connect to that song forevermore. That piece needs to be a showstopper; a song that leaves the audiences emotional avd feeling connected to each other. He did not deliver in this department last night. His delivery on songs like this felt a bit selfish – a bit of a disappointment.
Ed was fantastic! He played with no band or backtrack, but instead recorded himself and looped it as he went along to create the illusion of a backtrack or band. With only one person on stage in such a huge arena, there was a lot of opportunity to for the show to grow dry or redundant, especially for those sitting far away. However, he managed to keep me entertained the whole show with an AMAZING graphic show to accompany him. Each of his songs had a unique visual and light show that included scenes from music videos, new visuals, and video to project his performance. There was so much to look at I didn’t even mind sitting far away (second level).
Today’s video was highly-anticipated after sussexroyal published a short teaser yesterday, showing just Harry opening the door to find Ed outside. British singer-songwriter and global sensation Ed Sheeran has announced six huge headline shows, taking to Leeds and Ipswich in August 2019.
It has been seen by thousands of people from all over the world, many of whom saw him end his Divide world tour over four nights at Chantry Park in the town.
Here in Framlingham, with a population of just over 3,000, Sheeran’s influence is everywhere. The village has three pubs: the most rustic of the three – The Station Hotel – celebrated as the chosen Sheeran local. A small framed picture of Ed cheersing a pint hangs quietly on the far wall. Behind the bar is an even smaller framed picture, this time Sheeran poses with more punters.
Sheeran also broke U2’s total attendance record for their 110 show tour – breezing past their 7.3 million benchmark on May 24 with a total headcount of 7,315,970.
Ed Sheeran is known for his stripped-down approach to music and prefers to play for his fans with just a simple acoustic guitar. He likes to keep things simple, likely a combination of his difficult upbringing as well as his own natural humility.
Sheeran, who rose to fame in 2011 after years of playing small clubs and uploading his videos to YouTube, made it big by playing simple, heartfelt songs that people all over the world could relate to. His nice-guy persona isn’t an act, either.
