We’re finally getting the music video for Ed Sheeran’s latest single, “Small Bump”.
It’s one of the standout tracks on Ed’s album, + (Plus), and the 5th single from the album.
It’s probably my favorite song lyrically – so honest and tragically beautiful. The music video reflects the simplicity of the music, while maintaing the emotions of the lyrics and story. It’s such a heartbreaking yet beautiful tune, and the video captures the sentiment of the song perfectly.
Ed is currently in the US supporting Snow Patrol on their current tour, and will be back for a headlining tour later this year.
His album + (Plus) will be released in the US on June 12th. And it’s about time he brings his talents to the US. There’s been an amazing increase in the number of UK artists hitting it big in the US, and I hope the trend continues, especially with the talented singer-songwriters like Ed and Matt Cardle.
Yesterday, I had the privilege of seeing Ed perform on the MYstage (pictures) for MYfm. It was an intimate acoustic performance, and he blew it out of the park. He played “Lego House”, “A-Team”, and the extended version of “You Need Me, I Don’t Need You”. (I’ll post the video soon.)
His performance was on point, as was his interview. He was charismatic, funny and witty, and is a great story teller. His talents and personality shined, which will help launch his career in the US.
Here’s to seeing more of Ed Sheeran in states.
