It’s safe to say that almost everyone on the planet has been struck by Ed Sheeran fever, especially following the release of his third album, the record-breaking ÷ (Divide).
As soon as the album dropped on March 3, fans have been buying, streaming and listening to the record. Additionally, a number of artists from across the globe have been sharing covers of their favourite songs from the album.
The latest to bless us with an Ed Sheeran cover is The Vamps’ Connor Ball. However, just like us, it seems that Connor was pretty indecisive when it came to picking just one favourite song from the album. Instead, he treated fans to an incredible mashup of eight songs!
Connor mashed up ‘Galway Girl’, ‘Bibia Be Ye Ye’, ‘What Do I Know?’, ‘Happier’, ‘Nancy Mulligan’, ‘Shape of You’, ‘Supermarket Flowers’ and ‘New Man’, creating 2 minutes and 27 seconds of pure perfection.
Our favourite bit is the transition from ‘Shape of You’ to ‘Supermarket Flowers’ – Connor’s high note is unreal! We love how he cleverly fused each song together and combined shots of him singing and playing the guitar. Top marks for Con for this insane mashup!
The Vamps have got a busy year ahead of them, with their world tour kicking off in Sheffield on April 28. The band, made up of Connor Ball, Brad Simpson, James McVey and Tristan Evans, also recently announced that they will be supporting Little Mix in Europe later this year.
