Ed Sheeran - X

Posted 2 years ago

In 2011, Ed Sheeran dropped +, a debut album that marked his first major breakthrough on the international scene. Fast-forward three years and the English singer/songwriter and producer is parlaying that success into something even bigger with the release of his sophomore full-length, X.

Three of the project's 12 tracks (The deluxe edition will feature three additional songs.) have been featured in the Booth, including massively acclaimed lead single "SING" and follow-ups "Don't" and "Afire Love."

Though Sheeran is the sole vocalist on the album, Benny Blanco, Pharrell Williams and Rick Rubin lend a hand behind the boards.
