Ed Sheeran Reveals He’s Spending More Time in Studio With Other Artists
Ed Sheeran has a new album coming out next month, a follow-up to +, but the singer/songwriter who has penned hits for One Direction is now spending more time in the studio with other artists.
In an interview with The Daily Star, the red-headed singer explained that he’s no longer going to give songs away. Rather, it appears he’s looking to have his vision fleshed out.
Sheeran specifically has been working with Jessie Ware, as well as with Usher and Hilary Duff.
There’s no word how many songs he’s contributing to Ware’s sophomore album or of any production duties are involved.
The singer known for “Wildest Moments” released her debut in 2012. Called Devotion, the release featured production from Dave Okumu, Julio Bashmore, and Kid Harpoon. Bringing Sheeran on could mean a change of sound.
Devotion netted Ware a string of successful singles in the U.K., including “Running,” “Wildest Moments,” and “Night Light.” Two years ago, the release reached No. 5 on the U.K. Albums Chart and did modestly well in Poland. In the U.S., Devotion came out through Cherrytree Records and Interscope without much promotion and reached No. 79 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Sheeran himself has given a few more details about his upcoming release, now called X. Working with producer Rick Rubin, he has put out singles “Sing” and debuted “Thinking Out Loud” and “Tenerife Sea” live.
