Ed Sheeran – The A Team

This guy was so talented and has a beautiful voice; Ed Sheeran performs his song “The A Team” in an exclusive recording session live at Hinge Studios in Chicago, IL for The Live Room on The Warner Sound. Musically, ‘The A Team’ is a folk ballad with lyrics that speak of a crack-addicted prostitute (crack is known as a ‘Class A drug’). It was written after Sheeran visited a homeless shelter and heard some of the stories of what those people had been living. Making the song upbeat was Sheeran’s way of masking the heavy subject matter. Also using the term ‘Class A Team‘ was another way of masking it a little more. The song was sung by Sheeran, following a last minute performance at an event for the homeless. The chorus of “The A Team” was also used by Sheeran in the track “Little Lady”, which features Mikill Pane
