After a long hiatus, Ed Sheeran will be releasing a new song and a new album. He also told Radio 1’s presenter, Márti Kiss, about his little girl’s “civilian” life, but he also revealed that he was secretly expecting an English-Italian final at the European Championships, and had already bought tickets to this match years ago. The full interview will air on Thursday afternoon on Radio 1. In the meantime, here are some details, exclusively for Index readers.
The British world star has previously stated that her new song, Bad Habits, was born out of a desire to be fully present in her little girl’s life as a fresh dad, so the question arose as to how well she would accomplish that.
I think it will work. In a lot of places, I see the baby being born and passed down to the babysitter, and then they see him again in about a week. Of course, I don’t want to judge either, since we’re all working people, but somehow we need to find a balance.
The Index also wrote about Ed Sheeran returned after a long omission into the world of music, which he says he lives quite strangely in several ways.
It’s unbelievable how fast everything is changing, like the music industry. When I came out with my first success, Team A, it was all about iTunes pre-orders. You pre-ordered the song, then it was played on the radios during the pre-order period, then the song came out on Itunes and ran in there. Then at Multiply, the album started with a pre-order, and then the song came out, then at Divide, the focus was on the Spotifiy premiere, but there were even CD sales. And now what? TikTok, Deezer, Spotify, Apple… I start to lose the yarn. Now that I’m back again, someone could give me a lecture on which of them.
Because of the European Championships, of course, football was also mentioned after Ed Sheeran appeared in several photos with David Beckham during cheering. According to the singer, a possible victory would be very good for England, as he sees the country as very divided.
