Ed Sheeran has "cherry picked the best songs" for his new album

Ed Sheeran has revealed that he has been keeping his best compositions for himself rather than giving them away to other artists.

The ‘Lego House’ musician has previously written hits for other acts such as One Direction’s ‘Little Things’ and ‘Everything Has Changed’ which he co-wrote and recorded with Taylor Swift.

As the British singer-songwriter gears up for the release of his second album later this year, he has said that he has held on to his best material for the record.

Sheeran told the Evening Standard: “It’s the work I’m most proud of. I’ve cherry picked the best songs and worked with the best producers. My first album was a bit rushed because I’d just been signed and wanted to put something out before I was shelved.”

Ed Sheeran’s sophomore LP was recorded in LA with producer Rick Rubin and will be the follow up to his No. 1 debut album ‘+’.

The ‘A-Team’ troubadour recently premiered a new song titled ‘Take It Back Now’ during a live show.
