Product Description

Product Description

Set for release on June 23 via Asylum Records, x (multiply) is the hugely anticipated new album by Ed Sheeran. It follows his critically acclaimed and hugely successful 2011 debut +.

Never an artist to stand still, Ed recorded x at various locations around the globe (all the while drawing on experiences and influences encountered on his over three years of unrelenting touring) with such luminary producers as Rick Rubin (Eminem, Jay-Z, Red Hot Chilli Peppers), Pharrell Williams (Daft Punk, Robin Thicke, N.E.R.D), Benny Blanco (Rhianna, Wiz Khalifa) and Jeff Bhasker (Alicia Keys, Jay-Z) adding new flavours to the classy work of key collaborators Johnny McDaid (Snow Patrol) and Jake Gosling (who produced +).

The new set showcases the exponential growth (both vocally and musically) of an incredible artist, who at 23 exhibits the poise of a seasoned veteran. The songs for x came together whilst touring + and, in the same way as the latter was a snapshot of his life and relationship to-date, x charts his loves and life since. Only 'One', the perfect album opener and first song written for the record (in 2011 whilst on tour in Australia) looks back to that time and is the link between the two records. With 'One' under his belt, almost before he noticed he was writing, Ed had ten new songs and counting.
The breath-taking album-closer ‘Afire Love’ was written about his grandfather who passed away last Christmas. “Always the hero of the family - such a cool guy - he'd been suffering with Alzheimer’s for some time and I actually started writing that song two weeks before he passed away," Ed says. "I was thinking 'What if?' and then he did…” Then there is the timeless ballad ‘Photograph’ written in May 2012 in a hotel room in Kansas whilst on tour with Snow Patrol. McDaid had a piano loop playing on his laptop while Ed was making a Lego X-wing Fighter to give to a charity auction. He just started singing as he put the pieces together and the song grew from there. ‘Don’t’ started life as a riff on his phone and grew into another of x’s massive moments. The deluxe version of the album also includes the original song, ‘I See Fire’, which Ed wrote, produced and recorded for the second Hobbit movie. This was after Academy award-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson personally commissioned him.
However it’s the Pharrell-produced lead single 'Sing', due out in the UK on June 1, that’s pushing the envelope for Ed. #Sing was the number one trend on twitter globally ahead of launch with the track immediately tearing up airwaves nationwide including a 7-week add to Radio 1 and an unprecedented addition straight to the Super Hit list at Capital FM and Kiss Network. The audio upload on YouTube was Ed’s biggest ever video launch, clocking 650k views in its first 24 hours. Already i-tunes Top 5 in 15 different countries (number 3 in the US), Top 20 in 36 countries and with all chart positions climbing, ‘Sing’ is well on the way to being a global smash.
On the back of ‘Sing’s’ launch, x reached No.7 in the UK iTunes chart on pre-order alone with that success mirrored internationally with No.1 positions in the US and Canada, Top 5 in New Zealand, Sweden, Australia and Top 10 in 20 countries.
“I’m really proud of my new album and can’t wait for people to hear it.” Ed says. “It’s definitely my best work.”

Just what the Sheeran fans out there wanted! An official, quality recording of Ed live, with interviews and other bits, following Ed on tour. We have watched the 'Jumpers for goalposts' concert recording and we loved the dvd. Some great camera work and editing, IMO. Really gives an accurate picture of how good Ed is live. The concert is put together from songs from all three nights at Wembley, so if you were there, see if you can spot yourself! Perfect for us who saw him live in concert this year to re-live the great gigs (Croke Park!) and also great for those fans who didn't get to see him live. This is the next best thing... Also contains the album X along with four new tracks. A no-brainer for any Ed fan.

This is my first Ed Sheeran purchase so I have listened without prejudice after being impressed with his performance on T in the Park on TV. I have to say I am not in the least bit disappointed - just an album of great songs. Nicely varied, but all heartfelt and strongly melodic, Yes there is a range of sounds here that suggest a range of producers, but also a distinctive style that suggest a very talented young man. it really is hard to fault.

Really worth buying deluxe edition for 'I see fire' alone - already my favourite track on the album. 'Runaway', 'Bloodstream' and 'The Man' are also current favourites - but a great listen all round. A pleasing discovery.

Sheeran's command of vocal range, layering of musical ideas, simple melodic lines, lyrics rattled out like bullets and catchy themes are just some of the elements that make this album great. The honest and heartfelt insight into the struggles and vibrancy of his experiences and ordeals are riddled with the complexities of a frustrated and excited personality. A particular shout out for "Don't"; "Nina"; "Bloodstream" and "Runaway". Powerful stuff.

This was purchased for my partner who heard the song "Don't" at Glastonbury... I wouldn't say he was an Ed Sheeran fan before but this album has converted him....he thinks this album is excellent...All the songs are brilliant he is such a good lyricist and my partner now has tickets to see him at the 02. The man can write a solid tune so well as well as have such a great range to his voice and his rap style is so laid back and pleasant to hear. With the catchy first single "Sing" which I still love to death, this album is a must and this explains why it has been on the number 1 spot for a while now...fantastic!!

Have to say I bought this on a whim because I'd heard how good his shows are and it's a blinder
One man a guitar and some looping and delay effects pedals used brilliantly to set up a rhythm and sound and then improvised over truly original in today's mass market music Ed Sheeran comes across as a very affable and likeable guy who is unfazed by the adulation he draws and he is refreshing to see and hear
I recommend this highly as Ed Sheeran will only improve but his methodology and talent are clear to see on this great set a must for all music fans whatever genre you enjoy

Excuse the pun above but ya know! Had to it just felt right. I'll take a step back momentarily and just say..
The music coming this year just gets better and better; Sam Smith "In The Lonely Hour" Michael Jackson "Xscape" and now Ed Sheeran "X (Multiply)". This is the best of the best right here.

From the quiet ballad of falsetto and acoustic "One"

To the ever so regretful "I'm A Mess"

Followed on by the number one UK single acoustic dance track of "SING"

Then we get to the best stuff.

"Don't" is a particular highlight of mine. And many others by the looks of things. The hip-hop influenced spoken rapped four minute masterclass about being cheated on.

"Nina" is another hidden gem. R&B and catchy about long distance relationship.

"Thinking Out Loud" is also a personal favourite; a pretty falsetto ballad. Uplifting.

"Bloodstream" is a catchy R&B influenced song about drugs etc.

"Photograph" is another long distance relationship song. Lovely.

And "Afire Love" is heartfelt ballad about his grandfather's alzheimers and resulting death.

Those are my favourites. Not that the others aren't exceptional!

"I See Fire" is ridiculously good. Slow, slow, slow, then an explosive ending.

"The Man", a song reflecting on love, career, and fame. Sung in a rap!

"Take It Back" is a song about his career, reminiscent of "You Need Me I Don't Need You" from "+".

"Shirtsleeves" is a beautiful touch. Nuff said!

"Even My Dad Does Sometimes" is pretty but my least favourite.

"Tenerife Sea" is kinda magical. About true love, Ed Sheeran style!

"Runaway" is about Ed's dad's drinking problem, and is the second song directed by Pharrel. A very touchful yet upbeat tune.

"The Fault In Our Stars" is a real gem of an end to a real gem of an album.

Highly recommend. Best album this year :-)

I only decided to purchase after hearing a couple of songs from this album on the radio which I loved. The album exceeded my expectations and I cannot stop playing it. Every song is memorable and Ed has amazing vocal range with intelligent song writing. I never realised how talented he was. I look forward to his next album !
