Ed Sheeran is not in love with the shade of you.
The British singer-songwriter took to Twitter on Monday to set the record straight on his recent Glastonbury performance, where some accused Sheeran of not playing live. As many fans now, Sheeran makes heavy use of "looping" during his current live set, where an artist records pieces of music and layers them over each other to create a full song -- all in real time. But some on social media mistook the technique for using pre-recorded instruments in his show.
