Ed Sheeran debuts love ballad 'One' in empty Wembley Arena

Ed Sheeran continues to prove why he is a unique artist. On Friday, the English singer-songwriter shared a live version of "One," the opening track from his upcoming and much anticipated new album, X. The video is shot at Wembley Arena in London, and Sheeran is performing alone in front of 12,499 empty seats symbolizing that feeling of loneliness.

In the clip, Sheeran performs an unplugged version of the ballad. The soft melody and tender lyrics delivered in a sweet falsetto tone resonates with the black and white capture of the video. With lyrics like,

Tell me that you turned down the man/Who asked for your hand because you're waiting for me," Sheeran sings about getting drunk and the regret of leaving the one person meant for him.

The video is the first of a string of acoustic video's the singer will release weekly as a countdown to the release of his new album set to be released on June 24. The sophomore LP will be an album that will "make a statement" according to Sheeran. In an exclusive interview with FUSE News back in the beginning of April, the "Lego House" singer talked about just why it took him so long to release the upcoming album,

The delay happened because I thought the album was done. I had the opportunity to work with Rick Rubin for two months which I wasn't going to say no to. I had more time to actually set up a record instead of just putting it out. I wanted to make a statement."

He even went as far as comparing it to The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, as he incorporates elements of soul mixed with a hip-hop feel in some of the jams, like the already released track, "Sing." Once fans satisfy their musical taste buds with the album X, they can prepare for more Ed Sheeran music. The singer recently announced that he is working on a new collaborative album with The Game.
