Ed Sheeran Is Creating His Very Own Boyband, But Will It Fill That One Direction Void?
Maybe. Just maybe.
As if being the most successful musician of all time isn’t enough to keep him busy, Ed Sheeran has started his very own little side project that we’re really quite excited for.
The Shape Of You singer has revealed he’s currently in the process of finding members for a boyband, who he plans to take on his forthcoming stadium tour with him.
So that’s one of the industry’s most credible writers and singers, giving a load of his own songs to three "really, really decent” guys to sing to massive crowds. A recipe for success if we ever saw one.
Chatting to Rolling Stone about the whole thing, Ed explained that the genre is “superpop, but obviously credible.”
“I’m gonna put three or four boys together and do all the songs, take them on the stadium tour with me," he added.
Could this boyband be the next One Direction, though? We just want to throw that idea out there.
