Songwriter gives viewers a unique glimpse intro the song writing process,” said Sheeran. “Murray’s film brilliantly documents the hard work and DNA that goes into creating a song from start to finish.”


Commenting on being able to provide an authentic look into Ed’s life an creative process as only family can, Cummings said “I decided to make something different. 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.

Along the way, Songwriter offers a look back at Sheeran’s childhood, through never before seen footage from his family’s archives. 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.
