Ed Sheeran's 'Songwriter' Documentary Almost Didn't Happen

A documentary called Songwriter was released this week that follows the creative process of Ed Sheeran.

His cousin, Murray Cummings, began filming studio sessions early in his music career, but he hadn’t considered compiling the footage into a film.

It wasn’t until they started showing people a clip of Benny Blanco and Ed writing "Love Yourself" on a tour bus that they thought "we should make a documentary."

The result is an intimate look behind the scenes of making Ed’s massive third album Multiply.

Songwriter is out now.
