Ed Sheeran has made his Tiny Desk debut with a special live performance for NPR’s (Home) Concert series.
Coming to us from an extremely British-looking library, Sheeran is flanked by 16 incredibly talented musicians. The performance is an unusually populated affair for the artist, who more often than not, performs to sold-out arenas with just himself, his guitar and a myriad of pedals.
Across five songs, he traverses the new (‘Shivers’, ‘Bad Habits’), the old (‘Make It Rain’) and the VERY new (‘Overpass Graffiti’ – which he played out for the first time).
He also played ‘Visiting Hours’, which Sheeran wrote in heartfelt dedication to the late Michael Gudinski.
He’s currently gearing up to release his next record =, which is due to be released this Friday, 29th October.
Watch the performance below.
