[cheers and applause] um, give it up, give it up,
2:28 am
people. they love you. it is great to see you again. i'm going to lead with this. it is absolutely terrifying to be singing someone song and then listening while you're doing it. i was like oh, my god. i love that song though. "bad habits" is such a jam. i love it, why did you write that? >> ed: thank you. i loved your version by the way. i was listening to your version wondering whether i should have used more electric guitar, because it sounds pretty great. i wrote it kind of by accident. i was working with the two people that i made the album with johnny and fred, and freud is primarily like a dance producer, and he played me a tune that he was just about to release and it was a really, really heavy dance tune. and i said let's try to make something upbeat they could also be played on acoustic guitar light, and i was not expecting it to be the first single, it's one of the songs that sort of
2:29 am
came out and is just stuck, and it's not like -- it hasn't been like my biggest charting single, but i think it will end up being one of my biggest songs just over time. >> kelly: it has longevity. that's the best kind of song coming and i didn't want to freak you out, but my idea was to completely do it just piano and i wanted to make it really dark and sad and then i didn't want to freak you out, so i kept it this way. but i love a song like that. i feel like you write songs like that that you can do a huge band electric guitar, do it big, dance, singer-songwriter. it's an amazing gift you have, song writing knows that. you are a mega mentor on "the voice" this season, super stoked, but i have to ask, who was your favorite coach, ed? i mean, who is that, just shouted out. >> ed: only one person gave me a gift. >> kelly: you're like i can't say! >> ed: i still have it. >> kelly: i give you presence.
2:30 am
>> ed: i have it in this house. >> kelly: i will buy your love, ed sheeran! i will do it. your daughter lyra which is the most beautiful name ever, she just turned one, how do you think she has changed you? >> ed: i mean, my bedtime has shifted and no longer getting up at 5:00, getting up at 4:05 which is good, but there is new emotion that has come from having a daughter, she is just wonderful, just wonderful. and knows what her eyes and head and mouth, and on the verge of talking, it's incredible to watch these things happen. >> kelly: it so cool, it's so fast that they change. they change so quickly so fast. your new album is "equal" what is this about rather than being equal? >> ed: the equal sign, i feel
2:31 am
like being 30, equal is the end of the question in a start of an answer, and i feel like my 20s were just hell of a lot of questions, and now my 30s, they are starting to get answered for better or for worse, so the album is just -- i say it's a quarter life crisis album, but it's essentially turning 30, getting married, having a kid, losing a friend and sort of figuring out who i am around all of that. >> kelly: i love that. a lot of people will relate to that. it can't wait to hear it. you're touring again, which i know a lot of artists, we are all stoked to be doing again. where are you looking forward to playing? are you doing hometown shows? >> ed: you know, i have never really done hometown shows until the end of the tour, because it feels like the time where you finish and that's the celebration, so i'm looking forward, i am playing some cities and islands that i have never played before and i love touring islands, but to be honest the first leg of the tour
2:32 am
i am doing the kind of places where it's safe to do shows at the moment in europe, where they sort of had festivals and is tried and tested and everything is covid secure, because i just want to see if it works before bringing it elsewhere, so i am excited to play london and paris and excited to play all of the places in germany, but i will be coming to the states in 2023, all of the dates are getting finalized now. [cheers and applause] >> kelly: don't you be a liar, you better bring your show here, because i want to go. it's so nice to see you, ed, thank you for zooming in. >> ed: can i just say it was such a wonderful day hanging out with you on "the voice" and i just think you're such a fabulous person. and i can't wait to see you, so thank you for having me back! >> kelly: thank you! see, it worked, the jacket bought my love. ed
