Ed Sheeran Shares Exactly How He Wrote 'Shape of You' & Legos Are Involved

Ed Sheeran‘s “Shape Of You” is easily one of the top songs of 2017, and he just opened up about the process of writing the hit track with New York Times.

The musician and his co-writers and producers Steve Mac and Johnny McDaid dished about how the track came about and how Ed was planning to give it away to another artist.

“I didn’t make this song to be mine to sing,” he shared. “The best songs that I’ve ever written, I don’t really remember writing. They take like 20 minutes and then they’re just done. And then you move on to the next thing.”

Johnny also opened up about how, when they were in the studio and he was working on a song, he had Legos handy to keep Ed focused.

“His attention span can be fairly low,” he says. “One of the things I did to try and keep him in the room when I would be working on a track, I’d have like a suitcase full of legos I’d pull into the hotel room and say, ‘There you go. You build that.’”

Looks like they did the trick!
