In the clip -- one of many MTV is letting loose today -- he talks about his rise to fame and the pressure that comes with releasing his sophomore LP, X, out June 23.
"I never thought I'd be in the place I am now," Ed says in the slow-mo clip, signing autographs and performing for fans. "After a successful first album, it's literally a make-or-break situation."
Make or break? What will happen? Let's see how things unfurl for Ed when "Nine Days and Nights" premieres on MTV on June 10 at 11 p.m. ET. The hour-long doc will feature appearances by Taylor Swift and Pharrell.
And keep your eyes locked on the MTV Instagram, where more clips will be revealed throughout the day.
