After The Birth Of His Daughter, Ed Sheeran Came Close To Quitting Music

Sheeran says he pondered retiring after the birth of his daughter, so it turns out that was almost a permanent arrangement.

Ed Sheeran is back and promoting a new album, but he was quiet for the majority of 2020. Sheeran says he pondered retiring after the birth of his daughter, so it turns out that was almost a permanent arrangement.


Sheeran revealed the following in an interview with SiriusXM (as reported by NME):
“I stopped playing music for a bit, and music is entirely me as a person. Then I had my daughter and I was like, ‘Right, that’s it. This is me. I am probably just going to be a dad. I am not going to play music anymore.’ […] Then I was suddenly like, ‘It is more important for my daughter to grow up knowing that her parents have a work ethic.’ I slowly got back into music that way and the creative process started flowing again.”


He also noted that he’s coming off a stretch of immense productivity, saying, “I have done two albums and have written like 250 songs. In that, about 50 ballads. I write about 25 songs a week and one of them will be all right and that will go on the ‘maybe’ list.”


BTS’ “Permission To Dance,” which Sheeran co-wrote, is currently the No. 1 single in the United States, demonstrating Sheeran’s compositional prowess.
