Ed Sheeran To Launch His Own Record Label
When speaking to The Sun, Ed explained, “The door has now been opened, I’ve set up the label and I’m going to start signing people. It’ll be an imprint that goes through Warner. But I’ll get the rights back in about ten years.”
“I’ve got my first signing in mind. I’m looking at people like me, who came through the singer-songwriter scene.”
Ed’s label doesn’t have a name yet, but has revealed he is planning to focus on signing artists when he takes some time off next year.
He announced, “I’m going to focus on this when I’m on tour next year. Hopefully the acts will be up and running by the time I take time off.”
It’s alleged Ed’s decision to back up-and-coming singers comes from when he suggested friend and support act Passenger to his record label and they ignored his plea. Passenger later went on to enjoy global success with hit single, "Let Her Go."
