Who do you think is going to be in it? Biebs? Louis Tomlinson? Justin Timberlake?
In an interview with Rolling Stone, he shared that he has been thinking about starting a mega-pop star boy band saying, “I’m gonna put three or four boys together and do all the songs, take them out on the stadium tour with me,” he has already started writing the group’s material — “really, really decent. Superpop, but obviously credible.”
Ed admitted that he has been already auditioning members as well. For those unfamiliar with how Ed got his start in pop music by writing for One Direction. His first contribution was “Moments,” off 1D’s 2011 debut Up All Night. His most recent was “18,” off 2014’s Four, which he wrote on a whim in a hotel bathroom.
Ed also talks starring in a film with his own soundtrack, like Once, and hopes to co-headline a tour with Taylor Swift as Jay Z and Justin Timberlake did in 2013 for their Legends of the Summer trek. Read more about his ambitious plans at Rolling Stone.
