Ed Sheeran Penning Song for Ted Lasso as Hes Obsessed With the Show

Soccer fan Ed Sheeran opens up on his obsession with the Jason Sudeikis-fronted sports series and confirms he is writing a song for the upcoming new season.

AceShowbizEd Sheeran is writing a song for the upcoming season of “Ted Lasso“.

The singer has been asked to come up with a new track for the third season of the Apple TV+ hit, starring Jason Sudeikis.

He revealed the news during an appearance on “The Jonathan Ross Show” in the U.K. on Saturday night (30Oct21), alongside “Ted Lasso” star Hannah Waddingham.

“I’m obsessed with it (show),” Ed said. “It’s one of these shows where I’m constantly recommending it to people and they’re watching it instantly. I just think it’s great.”

“I got asked to do a song for the next season.”

It is not known if soccer fan Ed will actually make an appearance on the series.

The music for the show has so far included Rick Astley‘s hit “Never Gonna Give You Up” while the theme tune was co-written by Mumford & Sons frontman Marcus Mumford.

The critically-acclaimed sports TV series, which has been renewed for a third season, often made references to pop culture as well.

In one episode from season 2, Jeremy Swift‘s Leslie Higgins quipped about Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney‘s purchase of Wales soccer club, Wrexham AFC.

The duo were quick to react, “It has come to our attention that in a recent episode of ‘Ted Lasso’ our very real ownership of Wrexham AFC was called into question by an otherwise beloved character named ‘Higgins.’ “

“While we hold the incomparable Jeremy Swift in no ill regard and are honored to be mentioned on the platform that’s brought us high-quality programming ranging from ‘Mythic Quest’ season one to ‘Mythic Quest’ season two, we must insist that you cease and desist from the casting of any doubt regarding our commitment to the club, the fans, and the entire Wrexham community.”

Apple responded, “We like our high-profile celebrity arbitration just like (Ted Lasso character) Roy Kent: hard packaging on the outside, but soft goodness on the inside. Biscuits are on their way.”
