Ed Sheeran Teases New Song Recorded in Africa

The Divide artist recently got up to some songwriting while traveling the world. While over in Africa on a 2016 visit to Ghana, Ed linked up with Fuse ODG and hip-hop duo R2Bees.

Sheeran got to travel the world and learn about different cultures after he officially quit social media for the entire year. In a seemingly honest Instagram post the singer explained he was “taking the opportunity of not having to be anywhere… to travel the world.”

He released his third studio album one month ago today, which went straight to No. 1 in its first week. However, it has been revealed that Ed has more unreleased songs in the vault, referencing one particular recording session that he completed over in Ghana back in June.

Anticipation spread all around after he proclaimed, “We made a bunch of music, one song made the album then there’s more coming out,” Sheeran told The Sun. “There’s actually a full song being released with me, Fuse and R2Bees.”

Ed recently returned to Africa to film an appeal video for Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day. While he was visiting children on the streets in Liberia, Sheeran was so moved that he resolved to save five orphans.


Thanks to the help of the Norfolk songwriter and the charity Street Child, the five children are now under the protective custody of a guardian in a safe dwelling in the country’s capital Monrovia. One boy who met Sheeran in Liberia expressed his gratitude to the ‘Castle On A Hill’ singer for saving him. The boy, who went by the name JD, said: “If I had not met Street Child and Ed, I would still be sleeping in canoes on the beach.” – NME
