MTV Announces Ed Sheeran Docuseries, 9 Days and Nights of Ed Sheeran, Premiering June 10
Sheerios, get ready. This summer MTV is bringing you 9 Days and Nights of Ed Sheeran, a new documentary series that will capture the story of the British singer-songwriter at a turning point in his life and career. Ed will follow in the likes of Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Drake, Demi Lovato and Nicki Minaj, as MTV adds yet another music documentary series to its lineup.
9 Days and Nights of Ed Sheeran is set to premiere on Tuesday, June 10 with the first 60-minute installment featuring his good friend Taylor Swift and hitmaker Pharrell. Ed most recently collaborated with the “Happy” singer-producer on his new single “Sing.”
The docuseries will no doubt follow Ed through the process of cutting the single with Pharrell. “Sing,” from Ed’s upcoming album x(the follow-up to +), is more of a departure for the 23-year-old, who burst onto the music scene — and into teen girls’ hearts — last year with his super-earnest singles “The A Team” and “Give Me Love.” Clearly, this is the kind of “crossroads” the MTV docuseries aims to capture. Ed’s sophomore album x will be released on June 23.
Here’s hoping we get a Harry Styles sighting in one of these episodes.
Catch the premiere of 9 Days and Nights of Ed Sheeran on Tuesday, June 10, at 11:00 p.m. ET on MTV. Listen to Ed's new single "Sing," below, in anticipation.
