As part of Comic Relief and Red Nose Day, Kurupt FM team up with none other than Ed Sheeran to create a hilarious video that sees them headed to Africa (not really) for some Garage fun. Green screen randomness ensues. You can check out Sheeran on a more serious note below.
Before Stormzy ripped into NME Magazine, he enjoyed some light banter with Ed Sheeran for Noisey’s latest episode of The People Vs.. Check that out above, which sees them reading comments from their ‘Thinking Out Loud’ and ‘Scary’ visuals, respectively.
If you missed it, you can check out the two going Back & Forth (also for Noisey) here.
UPDATE: Ed Sheeran has been announced as the final headliner (below).
Foo Fighters will officially redeem themselves after being forced to pull out of Glastonbury a couple of years ago (thanks to Dave Grohl’s unfortunate injury); they’ve been announced for the Pyramid Stage come 24th June.
You can see the official announcement below; those that didn’t score Glasto tickets can head to Foo Fighters’ website for plenty of world tour dates.

Make no mistake: Ed Sheeran is holding the music crown for 2017 thus far, thanks to the release of his new album ÷ (or Divide). Thanks to ‘Goliath’ album sales, Divide has scored number one spots in a whopping 14 countries — including on the UK’s Official Album Chart (672,000 units sold) and America’s Billboard 200 (451,000 units sold). In addition, all 16 tracks on Divide have landed on the Top 20 singles chart (with some controversy, apparently). Save to say that Sheeran’s the one to beat this year.
In related news, the singer-musician has also announced some North American dates, which are all set to kick off this Summer. You can check out that schedule — as well as the announcement, and his alcohol-fuelled interview with The Breakfast Club — below.

After a long-enough wait, Ed Sheeran finally liberates his new album ÷, which can be streamed below via Apple Music. In addition, we’ve also included Sheeran’s remixes of ‘Shape Of You‘, which features assistance from the likes of Major Lazer and Stormzy (the latter of whom performed his version with Sheeran at the BRIT Awards). We’re definitely excited to take this album in.
In related news: Ed Sheeran revealed that he whacked Justin Bieber in the face with a golf club (during or following a wild, drunken night out). Read more about that here.
Both Stormzy and Ed Sheeran are currently at the forefront musically, preparing to release their new albums (Gang Signs & Prayer and ÷, respectively). Above, Noisey puts the two artists together for their Back & Forth series, which sees them speaking hilariously on how they met, sex, iPhone’s waterproof abilities and more.
In lieu of Ed Sheeran’s 26th birthday, the star artist/musician liberates another track from his forthcoming album ÷ titled ‘How Would You Feel (Paean)’…in addition, he also released a new visual that shows him performing the track live. You can check all of that out below.
÷ is released 3rd March; you can pre-order the album here.
How Would You Feel (Paean) comes out tomorrow at midnight wherever you are in the world, its not the next single, but is one of my favzzzzz

Ed Sheeran heads back to his hometown (Framlingham, Suffolk) in the new visual for ‘Castle On The Hill’, which is taken from the forthcoming album ÷. In the clip, Sheeran plays a sort of narrator, as his younger self hangs out with friends.
Enjoy the clip above and pre-order ÷ (released 3rd March) via iTunes.
On 3rd March, superstar Ed Sheeran will be releasing his third album ÷, of which the artwork (above) and tracklisting (below) have been revealed. Check those out and pre-order the project via iTunes.
