Foy Vance Celebrates Ed Sheeran Label Deal With Acoustic Track

(Atlantic) Ed Sheeran's new label, Gingerbread Man Records, has announced that they have signed a deal with frequent Sheeran touring mate Foy Vance, who is working on his debut release with the label and is expected to be released in spring 2016.

Foy celebrated the deal by releasing a new unplugged track. The new acoustic version of "She Burns," was recorded live from the legendary Blackbird Studios in Nashville, TN. Check it out here

We were sent the following details about the new deal: Vance and Sheeran - who are long-term friends - have frequently toured together and collaborated on their most recent albums; Sheeran sings on Vance's single Guiding Light from his 2013 album "Joy Of Nothing," while Vance co-wrote Tenerife Sea and Afire Love from Sheeran's 2014 multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated sophomore album "x", and wrote Make It Rain, the Sheeran-performed series closer to FX's hit drama Sons of Anarchy.

Ed Sheeran said of the signing: "I am very happy to reveal Foy Vance as my second signing to Gingerbread Man Records. Foy's always been an artist I've admired since meeting him in 2006. We've become touring buddies over the past few years and he's actually out in Australia with me at the moment on the final leg of my 'x' tour. His vocals are going to blow you away and I can't wait for you all to hear the record."

"I feel a deep sense of peace signing to an artist led label, not least of all because the artist in question is our Ed," says Vance. "Every time I've turned around in the last few years he has had my back."
