Ed Sheeran Will No Longer Compose For One Direction?

Ed Sheeran will no longer be composing new track for One Direction. Just don’t worry Directioners and Sheerios fans, there is no feud or ill feeling between the two. Find out the reason!

The 24-year-old “I See Fire” singer-songwriter has penned three out of four albums for the British boyband One Direction, counting “Over Again” and “Little Things” for 2012 “Take Me Home” album and the recent track “18” for album, “Four.”

Recently, in an interview with MTV, Ed Sheeran unveiled that the forthcoming fifth album, “Made in the A.M.” won’t feature his lyrics because he thinks “they can kind of do their own thing” now.

Sheeran said, “They’ve gotten to a point where they know how to write songs, so they don’t really need as much help anymore.” Furthermore, he mentioned when he first met Harry he was just 16-year-old, but now that he is 21 and has worked with everyone in the world, he has learned to write songs.

Sheeran claimed that he perhaps didn’t intent to write song “18” for the band, but while he was in Denmark and wrote the song in the hotel bathroom, he felt it was a perfect piece for One Direction and eventually shared it with them.

In a way await for the band’s “evolved version” rather than expecting much of Ed Sheeran’s lyrics in “Made in the A.M.” Julian Bunetta, One Direction producer recently told EW, “We’re stretching out outside of the perimeters of what a traditional pop boy band would do. We’re just kind of having fun. No rules.”

Whilst Ed Sheeran fans won’t get to hear his work on One Direction’s forthcoming album, they will soon enjoy seeing him co-host the MTV Europe Music Awards in Milan on Oct. 25.
