20 year old singer songwriter Ed Sheeran is an artist that somehow the Hype Machine listed blogging community has virtually ignored. This we find pretty incredible given his past underground credentials. He’s already released a number of self-released albums and EP’s and worked with grime artists such as Wiley and P Money giving him urban credibility. However, for whatever reason, Sheeran has been ignored by much of the new music community that you would normally expect to get excited about a prodigious up and coming talent.
Yet despite this, today Ed’s name appeared as the no.2 worldwide trending topic on Twitter following his announcement of a free EP download - One Take – which is available now at his website (click link above) The EP features three songs: the previously unheard track U.N.I, which will appear on his upcoming debut LP, Breaking More Waves favourite You Need Me (which is frankly amazing) and his cover of Jamie Woon’s Wayfaring Stranger, all of which were recorded in one take at the Rocket Studios in London last week. You can listen to all three tracks below and watch out, for irrespective of Hype Machine ‘cool’ blog love or not, Sheeran’s growing army of fans are propelling him towards the stars.Ed Sheeran - U.N.I
