You HAVE to hear: Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran is an awesome “new” musician. I say new, yet Wikipedia says he’s been gigging over 5 years now. Wikipedia also says that Janis Joplin speed-walked everywhere and was afraid of toilets. Nonetheless, he’s fairly new to me. Most people will recognise him from his hit song “The A-Team”. If you don’t, go listen to it. Loike, now.
He’s got a new album out very soon. It’s titled, “+”, and is released for digital download in Ireland on September 9th and generally on September 12th. The video below is a live studio recording of one of the songs on the album, and also new single, “You Need Me, I Don’t Need You”, which is out now. This is all recorded on the spot, with a loop pedal. It’s, like, acoustic hip-hop, guys! Personally, I think it’s genius. Very fresh. Like menthol. It’s like a beautiful fresh breeze of menthol, flowing straight into your eyes and nostrils, blinding you from its awesomeness.
