Biography

Ed Sheeran is blessed – he seems to know exactly where he is going, and exactly how to get there. Where countless others fail to make an impression amid today’s information overload, Ed’s music and talent cut straight through.

He has a poise that is as welcome as it is unusual in someone so young. He’s both utterly self-assured but still charmingly open. He has a ... Read more in Amazon's Ed Sheeran Store

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.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Ed's back with a refined & experimental sound! 23 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD
As you know, Ed Sheeran has been making waves these past few years as a singer/songwriter with a difference.
For a few of his fans though this second album marks just another step on the ladder of a journey that has spanned almost 10 years since his first EP release.

I'm part of the latter group who have been lucky enough to have experienced Ed's music & live shows 'pre & post' his signing to Atlantic records.

In my opinion, this album release marks a significantly more self-aware and experienced Sheeran who appears to have settled into the new life his unprecedented successes, both in the UK & worldwide have created.

A lot of fans have berated Ed for 'selling out' as he appeared to move further from his acoustic roots to create & produce the music we're slowly becoming more accustomed to hearing from him, yet i'd argue this whole album is well crafted with a very varied sound, showing his matured tastes, yet refusing to forget his long heritage of raw acoustic guitar tracks and his beautiful vocal range.

My personal highlight of the album being 'Don't', a powerful and emotionally charged tune to a retro hip hop beat that reminds me of 'One Night' from the 'Loose Change EP'.

If you want to follow the story of this singer/songwriter's journey to the top, this latest album is as good a starting point, as any of his others before.

Here's to album #3!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ed does it again 25 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well I played + to death and I still have to have it in every mix CD I make for myself or playlist I build as I'm so in love with it. 'X' is going to be the same I just know already. I've waited for what feels like forever for this CD and I'm already playing it on repeat all day long at work! (haha colleagues) I think my favourite track so far is 'Photograph' it reminds me of some of his older songs (pre-+ days) but if I go the same way that I did with '+' the I can guarantee that my favourite will change weekly!!
All in all, Ed, I blooming love you even more after this album release and positively can't wait for the tour later this year!

Now and then an artist releases an album that takes your breath away. Ed Sheeran's new X album does just that. This is one of the best albums of this century. Ed's talent truly shines through in this album.

For anybody interested in good, meaningful lyrics with excellent music and skill, this album is for you. Buy it.

Brilliant. Love love love it! Ed Sheeran is a genius. Not just musically great. Amazing words. Just sad that each album takes so long to write and it'll be ages before the next one

Bought this as a spur of the moment purchase but so glad I did. Haven't listened to his first album but this one is great. Favourites are 'afire love' 'one' 'runaway' and 'Tenerife sea' but honestly can listen to the whole album through without skipping any songs as they are all great! If anything 'sing' is my least favourite now only because it's been overplayed by radio stations. Well worth a buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A piece of genius multiplied by 10! 23 Jun 2014
By MJJ
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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 :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars One word. * Amazing * 25 Jun 2014
By melissa
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I love Ed's first album and can listen to every song without skipping and this album is just the same. His words are amazing and I know there is story behind each song so you can picture a scene with the song and think of Ed singing it there. It's just a must for any Ed fan or someone just wanting to try something new.
