Ed Sheeran's documentary film 'Songwriter' is set for release on August 28 on Apple Music. It is a collaboration between the hit-making musician and his cousin, Murray Cummings. Sheeran shared the trailer for the film on his Instagram recently.
The trailer invites the audience to watch how Sheeran created songs, particularly during the writing process of his third album, Divide. “The album… it's the peak of my songwriting and ability,” he says in the video. “The last two albums were building up to something.”
The trailer also features home videos of Sheeran playing a multitude of instruments, including the guitar of course, but also the cello, piano and drums. Sheeran also returns to his high school and talks to students in a music class, encouraging them to never stop trying to write songs.
Songwriter premiered earlier this year at the Berlin Film Festival and Tribeca Film Festival.
