EDITORS’ NOTES

Sweet-voiced, baby-faced Ed Sheeran gets ambitious on his sophomore album. Working with multiple star producers and a stack of catchy hooks, he stretches out beyond his original acoustic hip-hop sound. Rick Rubin and Benny Blanco produce the rap-based hit "Don't," which spotlights Sheeran's Yorkshire accent. He shows off his falsetto on the ballad "One," which recalls Coldplay at its gentlest. Even more surprising are "Runaway," a rocker with layers of overdubbed Sheeran harmonies, and the polished soul ballad "Thinking Out Loud."

Amazing album....But!!

Why are all the artists just re-Releasing their albums now. The albums are great as a standalone but to release it again with a new songs seems like a waste. Just release the new material as an EP rather then charge your fans again for an album they already bought a year ago. I love Ed Sheeran but for me, I would rather have the new material than have to purchase this as a whole album. Sam Smith is doing the same thing and honestly it's a little annoying. I'll buy just the new songs rather then spend the money on the entire album and create duplicate copies of songs in my playlists.

But I just want the new songs?

Don't get me wrong, I love Ed. I bought x cd when it was first released. I just hope to be able to buy the new songs without purchasing the entire album...

Can't wait

So excited for this! Can't believe New York will finally have a studio release! Also, Parting Glass is one of my favorites!
