I wasn’t going to show fame. I didn’t want paparazzi, screaming fans or big stadiums. I didn’t want to have sit down interviews because I didn’t want to tell the audience how something came to be, I just wanted to show them. And I wanted the focus to be the song writing.” Songwriter has turned into an intimate and beautifully photographer documentation of the creation of Ed Sheeran’s chart-topping album, ‘Divide’. In the film the viewer gains insight into the intense, collaborative process that produced some of Sheeran’s biggest hits.

Amid a mind-boggling travel schedule that finds him writing on tour buses, at an idyllic Malibu estate, and on one epically luxurious cruise liner. Sheeran works with legendary producer Benny Blanco and musicians such as Amy Wadge, Johnny McDaid, Foy Vance, Ryan Tedder and Julia Michaels to hone multiple songs at the same time while never missing a beat. Through these lovely, often hilarious interactions, Cummings reveals Sheeran to be a vulnerable, massively talented songwriter, one whose admiration for his collaborators, and theirs for him, is abundantly evident.
