    If it means anything, I've found this whole debate to be ridiculously funny

    But just because he wrote a song with one, two or nine people doesn't mean he NEEDED those people to write the song. You're imaging that he's calling up someone new every time he gets stuck when in reality he is probably just collaborating with his friends and properly crediting everyone who contributes. He wrote The A Team, Perfect, and the song you are quoting by himself so he obviously doesn't NEED them.

    BTW, Galway Girl has 9 co-writers because it samples another song written by a band with 5 members.

    I can’t believe I’m still having to repeat myself. Based on the lyrics in that song, it’s easy to see how an unsuspecting listener would assume that Sheeran has no outside help at all, when that just isn’t the case. That’s all I’m saying.

    Wait, why do you keep referring to a line that Ed wrote in 2011 to call him out on a song he wrote with his friends in 2017?

    How producers credits work- I’m in a band. I write the whole song. Lyrics. Melodies. Guitar parts. Bass parts. My producer comes up with an idea to change the drums to make them more dynamic. If we determine the new drum sound is essential to the feel of the song, the producer gets a writing credit. Simple.

    In absolutely no possible way does that LESSEN the contribution of the original songwriter. In no way does that mean that that songwriters didn’t write that song by themselves. The co-writing credit is to properly credit ANYONE who contributed ideas as simple as a drum fill, a melody change, a harmony.

    Source: I’m in a band where I write 100% of the music. But guess what- my band mate(s) receive co-writing credits because they CONTRIBUTE to the overall sound of the audio recording through collaborative ideas. But guess what- I’m still a “solo songwriter” (since you keep using that language).

    This whole thread makes me think theres some personal beef with Ed, like one of your mates liking someone you hate so you begin to hate your friend for it and try to convince them otherwise

    Good for him - not a bad idea to take that hiatus

    His performance in Yesterday movie was actually good. I like this guy, he's really talented.

    Honestly stoked for this. He said in an interview a couple years ago that Subtract/Minus/whatever might turn into a lo-fi album, which I'm honestly kind of hoping for. Even if it's something totally different I'm still excited though.

    not from the album

    Afterglow is a song I wrote last year that I wanted to release for you. It’s not the first single from the next album, it’s just a song I love, and hope you love too. Enjoy !
    Have a safe and happy festive break and New Year’s.
    Back to dad land for me now, ciao x

    Is there a reason a lot of people aren’t a fan of him? Is it just because he’s a white dude that makes (according to some) basic music? I was reading another forum and that was the main criticism but the attitude towards him was largely negative. Has he done anything else to warrant criticism or general distaste?

    I feel like he's said some dumb stuff in the past but overall I have no beef. He can write a banger and has a good voice. His live show was solid too
