Imagine watching Ed Sheeran play his heart-melting new single “One” in an empty Wembley Arena for just you. Like, you, Ed, 12,499 empty seats and lyrics like, “Tell me that you turned down the man/Who asked for your hand because you’re waiting for me/And I know you’re gonna be away awhile/But I’ve got no plans at all to leave.”
That’s what happens in the video for the single from Sheeran’s upcoming X album. In the just-posted moody black and white clip, Sheeran performs an unplugged version of the ballad in stark spotlight to a room as lonely as the drunken stumble home he sings about in the song.
