Musical Burst: Ed Sheeran Looks to Tap Into Your ‘Bloodstream’ with New Album
Ed Sheeran busted onto the popular music scene in 2011 when his first independent project quickly caught the ear of Elton John and his fellow Brits. By 2012 his debut album + went quantum platinum in the UK and he was nominated for Best New Artist at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards.
Now Sheeran has returned. A week ago he released another laid-back acoustic folk rock album, which, according to one of his tweets, has already sold 182 thousand copies, making it the fastest selling album of the year. And as you can see from the new song and mellow sound below, just like in 2011, in 2014 Sheeran appears again to be “The Man.”
