The 'Shape of You' singer headlined the festival earlier ths year
Ed Sheeran could return to headline Glastonbury after his stint at the 2017 festival.
He closed the festival on the Sunday night (June 25) with a polarising headline set.
Speaking before his set, Sheeran admitted that he is “out of place” at the festival. “I’m definitely the one that’s out of place on that list,” the singer told the BBC. “But I think that’s an exciting thing.”
Now Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis says Ed Sheeran could return to the festival. “Will Ed be back? He’s still only 26, so I’d be very surprised if we didn’t see him here at the farm again,” she told MusicWeek. “I certainly hope we will!”
Speaking of his set at the festival, Sheeran said he more excited for is appearance than he was for his Wembley Stadium shows because “when you’re playing your own shows you’re not really winning anyone over because they’ve all parted with cash to buy a ticket, so you’ve already won them over,” he explained. “But I think I’m going to be playing to a lot of people who might have heard some of my songs on the radio, but they’re Glastonbury goers, they’re not fans of me.”
He added: “Knowing that there are people in the audience who possibly don’t even like my music at all and are just there to sort of see, that excites me.”
Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran has starred in a new advert for Spotify, which sees him eating a gingerbread man version of himself.
Sheeran’s appearance in the ‘Ginger Ed Man’ clip comes following news that the singer is the most-streamed artist on the platform for 2017.
It comes after a bumper year that saw Sheeran achieving huge success with the release of third album ‘÷’.
Dua Lipa also achieved massive success in the Spotify streaming stakes too, after becoming the top female artist in the UK – immediately followed by Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift and Beyonce.
