Ed Sheeran has revealed he is filming a documentary that will give fans an unprecedented look into his life.

The singer explained that he is trying to balance what to include – and what to leave out – of the film. “We’re shooting a documentary at the minute… there is no point in putting something in there that is detrimental to my life,” Sheeran said.

“It is a very fine line, it is why I live in Suffolk and not in LA. My life as a celebrity is turned on when I am in New York, but at home I am a friend, a dad, a husband, a son. You can’t bring celebrity baggage to home.”

On the subject of his tour, and rumoured forthcoming album Subtract, due out early next year, Sheeran continued: “I am in the most creative part of my life. The pressure of every album having to be this gargantuan pop machine is off. I feel I have had five of them now and now is the time to explore doing stuff and taking risks.

“I am going to be on a stadium tour for years, so even if put out an album and it bombs, I’m still playing to 90,000 people a night. “I don’t feel the pressure of it. We will finish in 2026.”

Meanwhile, it has been revealed that Sheeran will continue to sponsor Ipswich Town FC’s shirts for a third season. The Suffolk singer began sponsoring the shirts for the men’s and women’s first teams for the 2021/22 season.

He said he was “thrilled” to be continuing the deal with a club that meant a lot to him. The club’s chief executive, Mark Ashton, said Sheeran had “shown his passion and commitment to the club and the wider community”. The club said it had achieved its highest sales of its blue home shirts in 15 years after Sheeran began his sponsorship.
