This is a good week for Sheerios. Ed Sheeran shared his puppet-enhanced “Sing” video, featuring a guest appearance from Pharrell earlier in the week, and on Saturday (May 24) he stopped by BBC Two program “Later… With Jools Holland” in the U.K., where he delivered new tune “Thinking Out Loud.” Both singles hail from his forthcoming Multiply (also known as X) album, due June 23.
Where “Sing” is literally a grooved-up ride as the erratic truck in the teaser clip echoed, the swoon-worthy “Thinking Out Loud” finds Ed in a more pensive, romantic mood. For our friends in the U.K., watch Ed’s acoustic performance of the song, which is buoyed by piano accompaniment. And for those of us not in the U.K., here’s another version.
