Young Gun Ed Sheeran Releases New Single

Let the countdown to the album launch begin….

Suffolk-born singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran’s new single ‘Young Guns’ was released on iTunes yesterday along with the opportunity for fans to pre-order his debut album. The eagerly awaited single is a collaboration with Yasmin, Lewi White, Griminal and Devlin.

Everyone at HOUSE OF SASSI is excited for the release of Ed’s album on September 12th, which people are already pre-ordering, highlighting the huge success Ed has enjoyed in recent months. His debut single ‘The A Team’ peaked at No.3 in the charts, and he has a huge list of upcoming tour and festival dates throughout the summer. Add that to a huge fan base dating back to his days as a YouTube phenomenon, and it seems that Ed’s music is really receiving the recognition it deserves.

Ed has already rocked several of the summer’s most talked about festivals, including Glastonbury, Beach Break Live, and most recently the iTunes festival, with a headline set at Latitude in Southwold later this month. Don’t worry if you’ve missed out on festival tickets, as Ed will continue to tour the UK this summer with gigs lined up all over the country in between festival appearances.

For anyone not familiar with Ed’s music, HOUSE OF SASSI recommends that you watch his YouTube acoustic sessions, filmed by SBTV, the top broadcaster for new music.  Ed’s music is a mix of acoustic folk, soul, hip hop and indie, and most songs include a freestyle rap, or a mashup (check out his own song, Wake Me Up, which he mixes with Gyptian’s Hold Yuh).

Last week, Ed’s album cover was unveiled, a pastel drawing of the singer by London based artist Philip Butah. If you’re unable to wait for the album’s release, several of Ed’s EPs, including ‘One Take’ and ‘Loose Change’, which contains ‘The A Team’ are available on iTunes. In the meantime we suggest that music lovers should check out Ed’s Youtube videos, including his fantastic SBTV performance of ‘You Need Me’.
