Ed Sheeran – ‘Drunk’ + ‘Empire State Of Mind’ | Radio 1 Live Lounge

Today was Ed’s turn to visit Radio 1’s Live Lounge, in the build up to The Brit Awards next Tuesday. This was Ed’s first Live Lounge accompanied with a full band – and I think it really added to the whole performance, as these two live tracks were sublime – especially the ‘mystery cover’, which turned out to be Jay Z and Alicia Keys’ massive collaboration, ‘Empire State Of Mind’. Which, on face value, would seem like a really difficult track to properly cover, but as always Ed managed…

Listen to the 2 performances:

Ed Sheeran – Drunk (Live on Graham Norton) and ‘+’ Stops The Adele Party!

A typically great performance from the 4-time Brit nominee.

Also, in Ed news, ‘+’ went back in at number 1 in the album charts! Denying Adele’s ’21’ a 21st week at the number 1 spot on it’s release anniversary. Ed Sheeran, stopping an Adele party it seems! Will he do the same, by over-shadowing her at the BRITS?

Wait and see.

Ed Sheeran – Drunk (Official Video)

So, it’s finally here – the official video for ‘Drunk’!

All we’d really been told about this video was that it features cats. I mean, how can that not sound good? Ed and a load of cats! Anyway, after getting the required 100,000 clicks on the link Ed sent out, it’s been reached, and Ed has released the video!

And, what a video!

Obviously, he’ll never top ‘Lego House’ – getting Rupert Grint in that video has made it a classic! (Who happens to live down the road from me – sort of) But this is still brilliant, and actually features Ed a little more than his videos normally do!

So sit back and enjoy Ed, and the cats!

Ed Sheeran – Drunk (Rudimental Remix)

Big remix of Ed’s upcoming single, ‘Drunk’, from Rudimental – who’ve done another great job of an Ed Sheeran single, after doing ‘Lego House’ too.

I’ve always imagined it to be a hard job to remix one of Ed’s laid-back, almost fully acoustic tracks, but people seem to be able to do them perfectly – we’ve had this Rudimental one, Gemini’s ‘You Need Me’ remix, Subcape’s ‘Lego House’ one too, plus a load of other brilliant remixes – so can’t wait to hear the others for the ‘Drunk release!’

Have a listen, and if you like what you here, you can follow Rudimental on Twitter here, and you can also download this remix for FREE here
