I don't normally go out of my way at work to be listening to the Radio One Live Lounge but today Ed Sheeran was stepping in and having seen numerous great live videos of him I wanted in. First up he performed an extended version of his latest single "You Need Me, I Don't Need You" using his trusty small acoustic guitar and the great loop pedal (guessing from the pics), that is the Boss RC-20. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Next up as you all know, the live lounge can make for some awesome cover tracks and in th epast we've had some hum dingers. Ed opted to cover Emeli Sande's "Heaven" making it his own with some happy feeling guitar upstrokes. Nothing to left field but none the less a great cover.
Now, after his appearance on Radio One Ed jumped over to 1Xtra to have a word with Trevor Nelson and whilst their did a great cover of Frank Ocean's "Swim Good" and boy can Ed swim. Check out all three tracks below. Thanks to House of Coxhead for the upload. BBC took their time getting things online today so apologies if you've been eagerly awaiting these tracks!
