Even though the latest Rudimental collaboration "Lay It All On Me" will be the last new track Ed Sheeran drops in a while, it doesn’t mean he’s leaving the spotlight so soon. The crooner stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and performed his rendition of a classic this time around, "Ain't No Sunshine".
Keeping the casual cover art of the guest artist’s latest album, in this case x, Stephen Colbert joked that the song the audience was about to hear was not on that record. Joined by 5 musicians, Ed Sheeran smoothly moved on to a cover of Bill Withers’ "Ain't No Sunshine" and it suddenly felt like we were back to the 70′s for a moment. Not only did he do the song justice, but he delivered a soulful performance filled with emotion and affection to the fullest. No wonder there’s not a single person that wants him to take a break.
Ed Sheeran didn’t just go to a late night show and perform a random cover of an old-school classic, even though it would have been perfectly fine if that was the case. The singer will be taking the stage of the Carnegie Hall tonight to perform his rendition of "Ain't No Sunshine" once again, as part of the Lean On Him: A Tribute To Bill Withers - another performance that’s not to miss. For the time being, check out the one at The Late Show below.
