He may be busy touring with Taylor Swift this summer, but British sensation Ed Sheeran has not put his new music on the back burner. In a new interview with HuffPost Teen, Ed revealed that he’s pretty much done writing his second album, and that despite achieving huge success with his debut album, he won’t be changing what he’s writing about just to appeal to a fan base.
Check out Ed talk about staying out of the Tabloids, his goals and new music below!
You’ve said in a few interviews that you’ve really prepared yourself for this moment. What about fame has really surprised you? Sheeran: Nothing, it’s everything that people said it would be. Everything. The good parts and the bad parts.
What’d they say it would be? They said your friends would not just live out every single dream you have for yourself in a matter of months and have to make new dreams for yourself, which has happened.
Do you have new dreams? Oh, every single new dream I make for myself is achieved within a month anyway, so I keep having to make new dreams.
What’s it this month? I guess playing a stadium, and I’m doing that Saturday.
Cool. Where? Detroit. That might be my next tattoo. I might get, “D.”
You’re described as a “new artist,” kind of like fun., even though you’ve been around forever. Does that bother you? No, I think I am a new artist to the music industry as a whole. It doesn’t bother me, I might even be considered a new artist on the second album.
