Ed Sheeran to Release "The A Team" EP on Dec. 6

British singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran will make his U.S. debut with the release of the The A Team EP, which lands digitally on Dec. 6.
The EP features four racks, previously unreleased in the U.S. In addition, a special iTunes version of the EP will be available exclusively via the iTunes Store, augmented by the additional track, "Grade 8 (Live At the iTunes Festival London)."
Sheeran – who will hit these shores in early 2012 for an eagerly awaited series of live dates – is a genuine phenomenon, masterfully blending soulful vocals with organic folk introspection and irresistible hip-hop hooks. Inspired by such diverse artists as James Morrison, Damien Rice, and Jay-Z, he moved to London at 16 and quickly made waves with his unique style and affecting songs. A prolific writer and performer, Sheeran played constantly – including over 300 gigs in 2009 alone – while also recording and self-releasing five independent EPs. He is a self-starter, that's for sure. We're lucky to make his acquaintance here in America.
