Ed Sheeran has announced details of a special anniversary edition of his seminal album ‘x’, set for release on 21 June – 10 years to the date of its original release. The record will be available on multiple formats including an EcoRecord; a new, more ecologically sustainable LP format (pre-order formats here). To celebrate the milestone, Sheeran has announced a one-off show at New York’s Barclays Center that’ll take place on 22 May, with the setlist reflecting his ‘x (Wembley Edition)’ release from 2015. To help get tickets into the hands of fans, Ed Sheeran is partnered with Seated for the exclusive fan on-sale. The exclusive, general on-sale, powered by Seated, will begin for the selected fans on Monday, May 6th at 10am ET via Ticketmaster.

‘x’ – Sheeran’s second album, released in 2014 – was the catalyst behind his global ascent. An LP that has now exceeded 22 million global sales, it generated the smash hits “Don’t”, “Sing”, “Photograph”, “Bloodstream”, and “Thinking Out Loud”. Outside of the original tracklisting, nine bonus tracks will feature on the individual formats of the anniversary editions, all of which have never been released on vinyl – these include “I See Fire” and “All of the Stars” taken from movie blockbusters, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Fault In Our Stars respectively.

Ed Sheeran is an era-defining artist, who has sold over 180 million records across the globe. Most recently, he took his record-breaking Mathematics Tour to South East Asia, UEA and India, where he invited local artists to perform with him each night, and even learned Mandarin and Punjabi for special collaborations at two of the shows.
