Apple Music will make new Ed Sheeran documentary ‘Songwriter’ available worldwide next month. Directed by Murray Cummings, the film will also receive a limited theatrical run in New York and LA.

“‘Songwriter’ gives viewers a unique glimpse into the songwriting process”, claims Sheeran. “Murray’s film brilliantly documents the hard work and DNA that goes into creating a song from start to finish”.

Cummings adds: “I decided to make something different. I wasn’t going to show fame. I didn’t want paparazzi, screaming fans or big stadiums. I didn’t want to have sit down interviews because I didn’t want to tell the audience how something came to be, I just wanted to show them. And I wanted the focus to be the songwriting”.

Premiered at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year, ‘Songwriter’ documents Sheeran’s work on songs ahead of recording his last album ‘Divide’. It’ll be available on Apple Music from 28 Aug.┬áHere’s a trailer:
