Ed Sheeran - The A Team (Video and Remixes)

Since we first posted about Ed Sheeran (here) his public profile has begun to increase in the UK. Key events have included Radio 1’s Zane Lowe finally jumping on board and giving The A Team his ‘Hottest Record’ treatment and then Ed’s first TV appearance on Later with Jools, where just armed with a loop pedal and his guitar he did what is now known as a ‘KT Tunstall’ racking up a plethora of Google searches on his name immediately after his appearance.

Today we’re featuring two videos and two remixes to his moving song. The first video is a simple black and white piece that touches on the tunes storyline of drugs and prostitution. You’ll also see a cameo appearance from Ed in the film.

Whilst the A Team may have reasonably strong themes for a young singer songwriter, it’s feather-light compared with Little Lady, the reworking of the song Ed produced with Mikill Pane on his Collaborations Project EP. If you do nothing else today why not log onto I Tunes and purchase it? Go on do it now. Mikil’s rap is full of deadweight realness with an emotional tale of desperate tragedy, fear and violence. It ends with a shock that – we warn you – will probably have you in tears. There’s a live version from Mikill in the second video below.
