I don’t think Ed Sheeran has ever really got it wrong. Case in point? His latest cover on BBC Radio 1 of Hozier’s ‘Take Me To Church’ shows Ed in a new light…hopefully a sound he’ll consider in the future.
When it comes to Ed’s live performances, it’s just him and a loop pedal. His ‘Take Me To Church’ cover sort of makes you go “Oh!”. It’s rare, perhaps even unheard of, to have anything else accompany Ed live, but the addition of the piano. Um, can I get some more Ed Sheeran with a fuller sound? Don’t get me wrong, I love Ed the way he is. But, just listen to this! That full sound slapped together with his vocals. Take me to church, INDEED!
