New music from Ed Sheeran could be closer than than we think. The Brit singer/songwriter debuted a snippet of an untitled new song on Instagram this morning (February 6) in a video with producer Jake Gosling. It’s hard to glean much from the extremely brief clip but the 22-year-old is definitely experimenting with new sounds.
The track has a retro soul sound, which is a big change of pace from the pared back, acoustic tunes on his extremely successful debut LP. It will be interesting to see if this is, in fact, the direction of Ed’s new music — the involvement of producers Rick Rubin and Pharrell suggest it is — because there’s a lot riding on his sophomore set. After all, + sold 1.5 million copies in the UK alone. See the rising star’s promising Instagram video after the jump.
