One of Ed Sheeran‘s Divide tracks was written especially quickly.
The 26-year-old musician just revealed that “What Do I Know?” was actually written to impress an executive at his music label.
“That was a weird song because that song was written trying to peacock in front of my label head,” Ed told People. “He’d come down to my house for the day, and I’d started writing that song, and in my head, I was like, ‘I want to show him how fast I can write a song.’ So that song came from just trying to write a song really quickly, to show him that I could write a song; that one’s quite a weird one.”
