Billboard’s new cover star is the Great Red Hope himself, Ed Sheeran, a self-deprecating, unglamorous heartthrob who attracts fans to arenas with just an acoustic guitar, was Taylor Swift’s date on Oscar night and is a talent Pharrell calls “one of the most impressive, underestimated singer-songwriters of our time.” Sheeran just announced he’ll release new single “Sing” next week; check back Monday (April 7) to get the full story on the Justin Timberlake-inspired track plus details on other surprises in store for his sophomore album.
Until then… go behind the scenes of Ed’s Billboard cover shoot in the exclusive video below.
Ed has tweeted that his new single Sing will be on iTunes Monday night in countries excluding UK, Ireland, Australia & Germany. Those countries will however get a new EP in a month.
Mix 106.1 has an International Superstar Bracket going on right now. Ed Sheeran has advanced to the second round and is against Candian rock group Simple Plan. It’s currently 50-50. I thought since we are not taking part in this years MMM that some of you might something to do. Why not vote for Ed in this bracket? You can vote for Ed as many times as you want at mixphiladelphia.com.
