Aaron Dessner to Play “Special” New York Show with Ed Sheeran


Aaron Dessner of The National announced a “special” New York show with Ed Sheeran.

The couple will play at the Royal Theatre in Brooklyn on April 10 with a live band. They are going to perform Sheeran’s upcoming album “-” in full, which means that the audience at this show will be the first to hear the unreleased songs on the record. The album will be released no earlier than May 5.

Dessner confirmed the news on Instagram, sharing a black and white photo of himself and Sheeran with the caption: “I’m glad to announce that I’m playing another special show at Kings Theater in Brooklyn on April 10th with @teddysphotos and our wonderful band. . We will be playing Subtract all the time 🙏 🎶 “.

Dessner teamed up with Sheeran to write and produce the LP. In a social media post earlier this month, Dessner recalled how he first met Sheeran when he helped produce his collaboration song with Taylor Swift, “Run” from “Red (Taylor’s Version).”

“It was special for me to hear two old friends sing together and bring the past to life — and a fun way to get to know someone, first working on music remotely before meeting in person,” he wrote.

Later, Dessner and Sheeran met for dinner in New York, where they “talked for a long time about music and life.” The message continued: “It was so relaxed, like we already knew each other. Thinking about Ed’s music, I realized that I was hearing in my head what I thought we could explore, musical ideas that would provide more space and emphasize what I admire about his guitar playing and incredible voice.

“I spent some time sketching out these ideas and shared the folder with Ed. A few months later, in the winter of 2021, he began to write to them and sometimes send them a few ideas for songs a day, inspired by a very difficult period that he was going through in his life. I could really empathize with what he was feeling and really wanted to help realize these songs.”

Dessner and Sheeran then reunited in January 2022 to continue working on music, and “finished over 30 songs together in a week,” 14 of which make up the upcoming “-“.
