Ed Sheeran is rumoured to been cast in a new comedy musical directed by Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire, The Beach) and written by Richard Curtis (Notting Hill, Love Actually, Blackadder).

In addition to an on-screen appearance, Sheeran has also possibly been asked to write new music for the film, which tells the story of a busker who wakes up one day as the only person on the planet who remembers The Beatles. The working title is understood to be “All You Need is Love”.
Ed Sheeran is known to be a big fan of The Beatles, owning a guitar given to him by Sir Paul McCartney, following Sheeran’s cover of the Beatles’ ‘In My Life’ at the 2014 Grammys ceremony.

The singer has now entered into talks to appear in Danny Boyle’s next movie – the Richard Curtis penned music-themed comedy tentatively titled All You Need Is Love.
According to The Daily Mail, Sheeran would star alongside Cinderella’s Lily James, Eastenders actor Himesh Patel, and Saturday Night Live’s Kate McKinnon.

This story appears in the March 2018 issue of National Geographic magazine. Paul McCartney is leading the Meat Free Monday campaign, asking people to skip meat once a week to “help slow climate change, and more..

Through the interview, Paul discusses his personal choices in becoming a vegetarian and why he’s now advocating for “meat moderators”: people who reduce their consumption of meat intake as part of their weekly food routine.

“I support a lot of causes, but this particular one is personal for me because it is how I live,” said McCartney. “Through this campaign, I can say to people, ‘Just try it,’ and show people that it can actually be quite fun when you look at what you do, what you eat, how you live and think, ‘Is this what I’m gonna do for the rest of my life or would it be kind of interesting to try making a change?’”



Goldberg said, “At National Geographic, we’ve been illuminating the world for the last 129 years — first in words and pictures, and now across our digital platforms, with information that’s on the side of science, on the side of facts and on the side of the planet.

Within our yellow border, we’re creating a portal for the planet’s curious people, giving those with an insatiable quest for knowledge the information that allows them to make informed decisions and affect positive change. We are thrilled that Paul chose National Geographic to bring his message about environmental sustainability to a global audience.”

Looking out of the window onto a wet and windy London feels a little different now that we know the days are getting longer and lighter. It’s certainly given everyone a big, happy energy boost – we hope you feel the same!

Along with the weather, another factor that can influence our mood and energy levels is music in all of its glorious genres! Having been a professional musician for most of his life, Paul is no stranger to dipping in and out of different musical styles which ties in nicely with this month’s question from Yvonne in the US, who asks:

“You’re known to experiment with musical genres. Have you ever thought of exploring some of the Latin American genres like son, rumba, salsa, merengue, tango, samba, etc.?”

Paul replied, “Thanks for your question, Yvonne. And yeah, once or twice! You know I’ve done something along those lines. My new album actually has something which is decidedly Latin. But I don’t know if it will make the cut. You never know with these things, but I think it will and people will understand what I’m talking about when they hear it. But I love Latin rhythms and have often experimented with them, but not a definitive thing like a tango or a salsa. It’s more the general rhythms of the country that I love.”

Of course, we asked (begged!) Paul to tell us more about his new album, but for the moment his lips are tightly sealed! Keep checking back to to be the first to hear any NEW news and make sure to let us know your favourite music genres in the comments below!

Featuring limited edition 180g color vinyl pressings

On 18th May, Paul will release four 2018 edition catalogue reissues via MPL/Capitol:
NEW, Chaos and Creation in the Backyard, Wings Greatest and Thrillington.

All four titles will be issued in affordable single CD digipak and 180gram black vinyl single LP formats and will be made available for the first time in limited edition 180gram color vinyl pressings. All vinyl LPs will include a download card. Upon its release in 2013, NEW was lauded by Rolling Stone as “energized and full of joyous rock & roll invention.” Produced by Giles Martin and also featuring production by Mark Ronson, Ethan Johns and Paul Epworth, NEW entered the U.S. chart at #3. The album scored positive reviews from Entertainment Weekly to Pitchfork and all points in between, while the title track, ‘Queenie Eye’ and ‘Save Us’ would become staples of the McCartney live show over the course of the ‘Out There’ and ‘One On One’ world tours. NEW’s 2018 edition will feature the first vinyl pressing of the album since its 2013 release, including a limited edition pink vinyl 180gram vinyl LP with download card and 12×12″ insert.

Released in 2005, Chaos and Creation in the Backyard was instantly hailed as continuing a hot streak that included ‘Flaming Pie’, ‘Run Devil Run’ and ‘Driving Rain’. Produced by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Beck) and featuring the singles ‘Fine Line’ and the Grammy-winning ‘Jenny Wren’, ‘Chaos And Creation’… debuted at #6 on the Billboard chart. It remained on the charts for nearly half a year, while Paul mounted the massive ‘US’ Tour. In 2007, ‘Jenny Wren’ won the Grammy for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, while the album was nominated in three other categories including Album of the Year. The 2018 edition of Chaos and Creation in the Backyard will make the album available on vinyl for the first time since its initial run and will include a limited edition gold vinyl 180gram vinyl LP with download card and 12×12″ insert.

Originally released in 1978, Wings Greatest was the first ever compilation of Paul’s post-Beatles hits, featuring four classics that had previously been unavailable on any McCartney album: ‘Another Day’, ‘Junior’s Farm’ ‘Hi, Hi, Hi’ and ‘Mull of Kintyre.’ The penultimate Wings album release, Wings Greatest was naturally a worldwide hit, and the soundtrack to the 70s for a generation. As part of its 2018 edition reissue, Wings Greatest will be available as a limited edition blue vinyl 180gram vinyl LP with download card and 20″x30″ poster.

Recorded in 1971 but not released until 1977, Thrillington remains one of the most enigmatic entries in the storied McCartney discography. Credited to the pseudonym Percy “Thrills” Thrillington, a fictitious socialite whose activities were chronicled in UK newspaper ads, Thrillington was actually a fully reimagined instrumental lounge/jazz version of Paul and Linda’s RAM. With Thrillington’s 2018 edition, Percy is given a new lease on life with this collector’s item available on vinyl for the first time since the 1977 first pressings that fetch hefty sums on the collectors’ market, plus a limited edition red/black marbled 180gram vinyl LP with download card. Every release is supervised by Paul himself, who oversees all aspects of each and every title.
