Ed Sheeran Debuts ‘New York,’ Duets With Taylor Swift in Concert: Watch


Ed Sheeran gave concertgoers at Madison Square Garden a two-for-one deal when he unveiled a new song off his forthcoming album and brought out his tour bestie, Taylor Swift, for a surprise duet on Friday.

Aptly dressed in a “I [Heart] NY” tee, the “Lego House” singer strummed his six-string and crooned his brand new track, “New York,” which is an acoustic ballad about starting a “new love” in the Big Apple.

Not only did the British redhead tease his long-awaited LP — which is due out some time in 2014 — Taylor joined the 22-year-old on stage for a flawless performance of their love song, “Everything Has Changed,” off her album, Red.

On the first night of his three-date residency at MSG, the “Give Me Love” singer-songwriter performed his song, “So In Love” for the first time. Ed will wrap up his headlining concert at the newly-renovated venue this Thursday, November 7.

As for the “I Knew You Were Trouble” singer, she revealed on Twitter that she is currently penning her next album, and she also announced the debut of her new song, “The Last Time,” with Snow Patrol‘s Gary Lightbody tonight on X Factor UK.
