The 24-year-old British singer, who just dropped his new album X, dished about not holding on to one genre of music.
“Just because I’m a man with an acoustic guitar doesn’t mean I have to play love songs,” he shared. “I want to straddle all worlds at once. I want to do my acoustic stuff, write for the biggest pop acts in the world, and also work with all the rappers I like, underground or not.”
Ed added about his new album: “Last year was the best professionally, but the worst personally. At the end of the year, there was quite a lot of shit going on. I’m a quiet, chill, happy guy, but everyone goes through dark times. I get rid of them by writing a song.”
