Ed Sheeran has revealed that working with Taylor Swift has opened new doors for him and featuring on her new album Red will help him reach a whole new audience.
The ‘A-Team’ singer is going to be supporting Taylor on the North American leg of her tour which kicks off on March 13th in Omaha, Nebraska next year.
Ed told MTV news: "I think Taylor's just opening up a lot of doors and it's up to me to make sure that I get through to them. It’s a massive opportunity for me and I want to make sure to grab it with both hands ... it will be exciting to be back in a situation where I'm playing in front of people who are complete strangers and I have to win them over."
Swift's album Red sold 1.2million copies in its first week and the tour is set to sell out within minutes, however Ed is no stranger to large crowds as he has had huge success in the UK and is well known for his dedication to live shows and recently completed his own sell out UK arena tour.
He continued: "I've never gone on tour for six months without any break. I've never really touched multiple arenas, so that' going to be a bit mind-blowing."
Ed and Taylor have written many songs together and appear to have a close working relationship but Ed fuelled rumours they may be more than friends when he was pictured sporting a ‘Red’ tattoo.
However Sheeran justified his new ink by saying: "When my album came out all around the world I got the world tattooed ... If I'm going to be on tour with this album for six months I thought that would be quite a big part of my life."
