Ed Sheeran Channels Justin Timberlake On New Pharrell-Produced Single “Sing”: Listen

6aba929f545b42dbff0963250190227c Ed Sheeran Channels Justin Timberlake On New Pharrell Produced Single “Sing”: Listen

It was clear that Ed Sheeran was intent on expanding his musical horizons when he collaborated with Lupe Fiasco on hip-hop gem “Old School” and teamed up with Martin Garrix on an as-yet unnamed club banger but “Sing” still comes as something of a surprise. The lead single from the Brit’s much-anticipated sophomore set is a jaunty blue-eyed soul anthem in the mold of Justin Timberlake circa Justified.

The catchy track brings back memories of JT’s “Like I Love You”, which shouldn’t come as much of a surprise given that they were both produced by the omnipresent Pharrell. “Sing” bears all of the hitmaker’s trademark ticks — multiple hooks, a driving bassline, staccato beats — as well as a splash of the currently hot disco trend (there are overtones of The Rolling Stones“Miss You”). It’s a big change but Ed pulls it off admirably. Listen to his latest single after the jump.

Is this a good sound for Ed? Have your say in the comments below.
