NPR’s “Tiny Desk (Home) Concert” series has featured performances by many big-name stars like Camila Cabello, J Balvin, Migos, and now, Ed Sheeran. Backed by a host of world-class musicians, Sheeran performed a mix of his greatest hits along with his latest singles, “Shivers” and “Bad Habits”.
The “Tiny Desk” concert showcased Ed Sheeran in his familiar, comfortable state, as he rocked a hoodie, cargo pants, and sneakers while working through the five-song setlist in an intimate performance. Fans were nothing short of impressed by Sheeran’s emotional, soulful performance.
“Anyone else been watching this on repeat?” wrote a fan on Twitter, as another said, “I have a new ‘Tiny Desk’ episode”.
Ed Sheeran’s new album, titled “=”, is set to debut this Friday on Oct. 29th. This will be his fourth solo album that will “surprise and comfort people,” according to his manager, Stuart Camp. “There are some normal Ed songs, but there are also some more sonically adventurous ones as well,” he adds.
Ed Sheeran has also set aside lengthy touring fans that are likely to cover most of 2023 for Noth America.
“We’ll be touring – if we’re allowed to – for two to three years, and there may be more records in that period,” says Camp. “If we tour for that long, I’d imagine there will be two albums within that cycle. Because this record’s taken so long to make, we genuinely have a lot of songs, so it could happen relatively quickly. If he wanted to, he could literally release an album of acoustic ballads tomorrow!”
