Ed Sheeran – The A-Team

The first I knew of this guy was when he was on Later… With Jools Holland a few weeks ago. For me, Ed’s solo performance was by far the most entertaining and actually, well, musical thing on the show. The song in question was The A-Team, which has nothing to do with old TV shows or their movie remakes, but tells an altogether darker story, wrapped up in a nifty tune with a nicely clear vocal. It’s being released as a single next month, but you can enjoy it now in this lovely acoustic performance:

I like this a lot, and I’ll be buying the single, and probably some more of Ed’s stuff.
