Discussing his new music at Radio 1's Big Weekend last month, Ed admits he still gets nervous when launching a new record. "Every time I’ve released a first single from an album I’ve been nervous about it because I’m like, 'Oh, I don’t know how this is going to go,' and I like that feeling.
"I like the idea of putting something out and being like, 'I don’t know how people are going to feel about this'."
Ed was recently revealed as the sponsor of Ipswich Town Football Club, who he’s supported since he was a child. As he announced the one-year deal to sponsor the shirts of the men’s and women’s first teams, he appeared to also announce a tour, though no further details have been revealed yet.
