Our favourite British singer-songwriter has got some pretty killer deep-cuts.
If you aren't already a massive Ed Sheeran fan, chances are you mostly know him from some of his biggest singles: "The A-Team", "Give Me Love", "Thinking Out Loud", etc.
But with a music career already spanning ten years, Ed's got some lesser-known big hitters in his discography that you might not have heard yet. So we've picked out some of our favourite Ed Sheeran deep cuts for you to enjoy...
1) "Kiss Me" (from +)
Ed's big breakthrough + (or Plus) is known for being full of feelings (especially in the SIX singles he released). But album-only track "Kiss Me" manages to incorporate all of those feelings (well, the romantic ones at least) into one gorgeous slow-jam.
2) "Cold Coffee" (from Songs I Wrote With Amy)
If there's one thing that never fails to compliment Ed's vocals, it's collaborating with a female singer; and this low-key yet intense track from Ed's co-written EP with Amy Wadge is a perfect example.
3) "One Night" (from Loose Change)
With a similar groove to "Don't" minus the same vindictive tone, "One Night" is a catchy insight into the struggles of a one-night stand.
4) "Gold Rush" (from + (Deluxe Edition))
One of the perkiest tracks to come out of Ed's extended album, "Gold Rush" charted along with every other track on Plus; but still managed to maintained a lesser-known status.
5) "Lego House (Subscape Remix)" (from Lego House)
While technically just a remix of a massively popular single, Ed's vocals contributing to this dubstep rework is Ed Sheeran like we've never heard him before: and frankly, it's freaking awesome.
6) "You (ft. Wiley)" (from No. 5 Collaborations Project)
Admittedly Wiley's verses are the driving force on this one, but Ed's ethereal vocals on the chorus are what truly make it.
7) "I'm A Mess" (from x)
Starting off as a stripped back acoustic track before launching into a fully-instrumented jam, "I'm A Mess" has that relentless tempo and intensity that would make it a perfect addition to your driving playlist.
