Ed Sheeran Reveals Title and Release Date for Sophomore Album
Ed Sheeran has given a few false starts regarding his sophomore album. Previously, he talked about making a death metal or hip-hop record, while an interview question about working with producer Rick Rubin became a metaphorical conversation about making a pizza.
But now, it looks like the red-headed singer-songwriter is being straightforward with his audience, especially as the first single comes out today. To officially start promotion, Sheeran revealed the album’s title and release date on Twitter. He wrote: “My 2nd album is called 'x' or 'multiply' and will released on the 23rd of June worldwide. Can't wait for you guys to hear it”
From what we know, Sheeran has been in the studio with Rubin and Pharrell and already showed Taylor Swift the album in full. A handful of tracks, as well, have made it into various live setlists, including a major New York concert last year.
Today, however, the first official single drops – a track called “Sing.” Expect to hear it, if you’re in the U.K., debut on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show at 7:30 p.m. For everyone else, the new track likely will be online shortly.
In addition, 40 demos were supposedly created, but there’s no word on how many made it through the recording process and will eventually be on the album.
