    Sheeran’s cousin and filmmaker, Murray Cummings, directed the film that takes fans into the singer-songwriter’s private process.

    “I decided to make something different,” Cummings says. “I wasn’t going to show fame. I didn’t want paparazzi, screaming fans or big stadiums. I didn’t want to have sit-down interviews because I didn’t want to tell the audience how something came to be, I just wanted to show them. And I wanted the focus to be the songwriting.”

    The documentary was produced by Kimmie Kim and executive produced by Stuart Camp and Stefan Demetriou. According to releases, it’s an intimate look at Sheeran’s creation process behind his album, Divide. Fans get to see the grueling writing process that took place. Sheeran writes everywhere from tour buses to a Malibu estate to a luxury cruise liner.
