Ed Sheeran: Up All Night With Pop's Hardcore Troubadour | Full Rolling Stone Interview
“Let’s go to my place for the finale!” Ed Sheeran shouts as he hops into an SUV. It’s just after midnight in London. Sheeran spent much of the evening in a bar, but even with his bright-red hair hidden under a ball cap, people started to recognize him. The DJ played one of his songs, and his friends had to create a wall around him so he could drink in peace. It all made him a little anxious, which is why we’re speeding to his West London home to keep the party going.
Sheeran is celebrating tonight because he knows he’s about to score his first Number One hit in America with “Shape of You,” a sleek, funky stomper from his new album, ÷ (pronounced Divide). We’re joined by his girlfriend, Cherry, and his old friends Zack, Nathan and Catherine, who have been watching him perform since he released his first album, The Spinning Man, when he was 13. “I went plywood,” Sheeran, now 25, jokes about that LP. “Not gold. I sold 100 copies.”
Sheeran has been going hard tonight: espresso martinis and rum-punch shots at dinner, gin and tonics at the bar. It’s my birthday, and at one point he grabs my phone, takes a selfie of us and posts to my Instagram, writing “It’s my birthday bitches #london #hashtag #believe #achieve #inspiration.” He encourages friends to knock back pints with a drinking song that ends “Na na na na/Hey hey hey/You’re a cunt!”
Soon, we arrive at his house, a five-floor, industrial-style space with brick walls, wood floors and several personal touches: a Charmander Pokémon stuffed animal in his bedroom and a bong shaped like Benny Blanco’s head in the living room. There’s also a recording studio, a gym and a full bar, where he recently entertained several young cast members of his favorite show, Game of Thrones. As we arrive, Sheeran offers bedrooms to anyone who wants to “get rowdy,” then goes to work mixing drinks.

Unfortunately that’s not up to me, but I can try and give you some other stuff here:
A couple of people have also asked if I made the music myself (I’m just combining these two questions for simplicity’s sake), but I didn’t. I was interested, and I made some placeholder music sometimes, but there were a lot of reasons to get someone else. One of the goals when making a pilot is learning to give others directions for what you want. It’s basically some low stakes practice for making your own show. If Infinity Train becomes a show, I wouldn’t have the time to score everything, so I have to be able to tell someone else what I need. The next issue is that I’m not that experienced in scoring, just normal songwriting, so there would have been a learning curve. Lastly, it’s really fun to get someone else to make stuff for you if you trust them, because they’re likely to bring new thoughts and ideas to the table that you didn’t think of.
So I got Chrome Canyon!
I first found him when I went to a live score for the movie Metropolis in 2013. He scored the entire movie and I checked out his album called “Elemental Themes”. It’s one of my favorite albums ever, not just for a couple songs, but for the album as a whole. I’ve listened to that album countless times, and there are a lot of moments in there where I really appreciated the choices that he made, structurally or instrumentally.
We asked if he would be interested in working on the pilot, and he said yes! It was so cool! It’s pretty shocking to get someone you admire to work on something for you. He and I have very similar musical tastes, so when I would name a song or idea or even like specific synthesizer settings, he knew exactly what I was talking about.
Through talking with him, he understood that basically I wanted the synth based creepy adventure/horror. I referenced Neverending Story a lot, It Follows, Nightmare on Elm Street, the Mysterious Stranger, Blade Runner, Myst, Majora’s Mask, Dune, etc. Just anything that would, hopefully, give kids nightmares. I believe strongly in scaring children.
I also gave him this list of songs that I felt had the mood or sound I was going for.
This post is for the people who still live in 2012 and think that Messi is the only important player in the Argentina National Team. Sit back and relax while meeting the amazing players you missed because apparently Argentina is “Messi’s team”.
Meet Javier Mascherano.
Aka someone who is willing to tear his ass on the pitch multiple times to secure a win for his team. Plays for Barcelona and a big part of why they won the treble this year. Has an average 91.5% pass success in all competitions. Probably the best CDM in the world right now, and on top of that, shows great leadership (even when he’s not captain). “Hoy, hoy te conviertes un heroe” anyone?
Meet Marcos Rojo.
Can play as both center-back and left-back. Part of the FIFA World Cup All-Star Team in 2014. Amazing at set pieces, but even better at clearing balls under pressure. Won the Copa Libertadores in 2009 and the Argentine Primera División in 2010 with Estudiantes. Joined Manchester United in 2014 and makes an average 6.3 clearances per game in the Premier League.
Meet Nicolás Otamendi.
Arguably the best center-back from South America and one of the best in La Liga. Extremely strong at aerial duels (wins an average of 3.6 per game) and delivers important tackles, and yet very underrated. Makes an average 7.3 clearances per game for Valencia. In this gif, he blocked the shot of the player you believe Argentina revolves around.
Meet Lucas Biglia.
Plays at defensive/central midfield, yet great at tackles. Has one of the best pass success rates in the Copa America (92%) and Serie A (88%). This man actually has no position, he can play at many different areas in the field. One minute he’s blocking a shot and the next, he’s delivering a creative pass like the one in this gif.
Meet Ángel Di María.
He needs absolutely no introduction. Has such immense pace and creates key passes for Argentina and Manchester United. Although he is an attack-minded player, he has made an average of 2.2 tackles per game in the Copa America. Named Man of the Match for the UEFA Champions League Final in 2014. Attacks like crazy in every game; the only reason he is not top scorer is because of tough luck and great goalkeepers.
Meet Javier Pastore.
The dark horse for Argentina this year. Only 26 years old, but plays in like 6 different positions, all the way from central midfielder to center forward. Great with both his right and left foot, so very versatile on the field. Great dribbler (average 2.2 per game) and great at stealing the ball. Has been key for the attack of Argentina in this Copa.
Meet Ezequiel Lavezzi.
Has not started for Argentina that often in this Copa America, but delivers a great performance every time he plays. Good at taking set pieces, but amazing at crossing. Has an 86.3% pass success rate in Ligue 1.
Meet Gonzalo Higuaín.
Like Messi, he scores goals for fun (esp. with this national team). He became the top scorer for the South American section of World Cup Qualifiers in 2013 with 9 goals, scored 18 and assisted 7 for Napoli in Serie A last season, and scored two goals in the Copa América this year. He is the 6th top scorer for Argentina in history. Raised hope for Argentina in both the WC2014 Final and the Copa America final by getting close to scoring the winning goal, but the world doesn’t want Pipita to have a moment like that in his life.
Meet Kun Agüero.
One of the best strikers in the world today. Scored 26 goals with 8 assists for Machester City last season and was the top scorer for Argentina in the Copa Améria with 3 goals. Has an average 4 shots and 2.6 dribbles per game. What he did for his club is undeniable; scored a goal in the 94th minute to give Manchester City the Premier League title after who knows how many years. Always praises Messi and calls him the best in the world, but man, he doesn’t know how great of a player he is himself.
Last but not least, meet Sergio Romero.
I don’t know what to say about this man. I really don’t. The number of times he has saved Argentina is countless. He was the hero when he led Argentina to the finals in the penalties against the NETHERLANDS!!! and led them to the finals again this year against freaking Paraguay. Not to mention that he is a free agent, which means that he hasn’t been playing for a club and is only on international duty; and yet, he has delivered such a kick-ass performance this tournament. He survived 2 penalty shootouts in one year and man, I don’t blame him for not surviving the 3rd. He must be tired. But, he is a freaking hero and ignoring his talent and determination and calling Argentina “Messi’s team” is a disrespect to football.
If you still wanna say Argentina is reliant on Messi, just know that you are completely and utterly IGNORANT to pure footballing talent and *flips hair* you can kiss my ass.
The past few days have been nuts with NWSL trades. The deal I am most excited about is Portland Thorns FC acquiring Icelandic international and former Florida State standout Dagny Brynjarsdottir
I will admit I am a bit biased towards this deal. I am part Icelandic so whenever I hear of someone from Iceland slaying it, I get super jazzed. Here’s why I think you should be as pumped as I am to see Dagny in the NWSL next season.
The 24 year old from Hella, Iceland (population of 781 btw) made her debut for Iceland at 18 years old. The promising midfielder now has 48 caps and 11 goals to her name.
In Euro 2013, she scored the game-winning goal against Netherlands to send Iceland to its first ever quarter final match. It was later revealed she played that game with a broken foot.
Some of you might recognize her name from her time at Florida State. With Brynjarsdottir leading the charge, Florida State reached four consecutive College Cup appearances from 2011-2014 and brought home the NCAA Championship in 2014.
To top it all of Dagny found herself on the 2013 MAC Hermann watchlist and became a finalist for the 2014 MAC Hermann trophy, losing out to Morgan Brian.
So get hype guys, an Icelandic invasion is coming to Portland and you better be ready for her.
