Ed Sheeran Won’t Be Giving Up Music For Baseball Anytime Soon, And Here’s Why

Ed Sheeran is always the busy musician, but that busyness even extends to his days off. Recently, Ed spent his day off recording a new cover for good friend Tory Lanez. Called “Say It,” Ed’s sweet voice really belts it out in the way only he can. He tweeted about it so everyone would know to watch out for it and be able to download it – for free.

MTV News reported Ed Sheeran also has a new single that has just been released. The song, called “Lay It All On Me,” is the result of collaboration between Ed Sheeran and British electronic group Rudimental. According to MTV News, Ed said he hopes everyone likes the single.

Ed Sheeran tweeted the following about the new song.

Got a brand new single coming out friday, with @RudimentalUk, called Lay It All On Me. Watch out for it

That was followed by a tweet saying it is the last one until his third album comes out.

That’s the last song il be releasing for a long time, til album 3, hope you like it

Let’s just hope we don’t have to wait too long for that third album.

At least Ed Sheeran is currently touring and wowing the crowds with his voice and his guitar. He just performed in Toronto’s Air Canada Centre, where he once again mesmerized his audience without the use of crazy pyrotechnics and a backup band. It’s always just Ed Sheeran and his guitar, and he is talented enough that it’s all he needs, AndPop reported.

Apparently, though, Ed Sheeran shouldn’t quit his music career for a career in baseball anytime soon. Before playing at the Verizon Center on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week, Ed spent some time in batting practice at Nationals Park on Monday, September 21, 2015.

The Washington Post reported that Ed admitted to knowing less about baseball than he knows about pop culture.

Even Barry Svrluga, a baseball writer with the National Post, took to Twitter to talk about how Ed Sheeran can’t hit the ball.

Even if Ed Sheeran does have a hard time connecting the bat with the ball, he certainly knows how to connect his fingers with the string of his guitar, and isn’t that really what we truly care about? You can catch Ed Sheeran performing on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on September 30, and as Headline Planet noted, Ed’s performance that just might be tied into the tribute to Bill Withers that Ed is headlining the following evening at Carnegie Hall.
