Long acclaimed as a captivating and creative live performer, Sheeran spent much of the past two years traversing North America on back-to-back sold-out headlining tours. Now, he’s back with a new single entitled, “Thinking Out Loud.”
This new offering follows back-to-back RIAA-Platinum certified singles “Sing” and “Don’t,” and has already gone to #1 in 6 countries around the world, including his native United Kingdom. Talk about an accomplishment!
Sheeran is set to premiere the single on the “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show,” which airs on CBS on December 9th. The official Emil Nava-directed video, which was released over a month ago, has managed to accumulate over 41 million views as fans watch Ed partake in ballroom dancing.
Sheeran is offering a special 7” vinyl single of “Thinking Out Loud” that will be exclusively available at participating Record Store Day retail stores on Black Friday, November 28th.
Sheeran is currently in the midst of his worldwide headlining arena tour in support of “x,” which is one of the most successful releases of 2015, topping the iTunes charts in 83 territories and going to #1 in 14 countries around the world.
As the biggest and fastest selling album of the year, Ed recently announced that the tour’s finale would take place at London’s Wembley Stadium on July 10, 2015, marking his biggest headlining show to date.
