Breaking In America

Ed Sheeran: "My goal for 2012 is America. I've got the Snowpatrol tour. I'm hoping to do three or four radio stations a day. I'm very determined to do what is needed here.

"A quarter of Texas is the size of the UK. Breaking America is going to take quite a lot of time and effort, and also sleepless nights. But, I'm going to do.

"I wouldn't want to take responsibility for breaking UK rappers over here, but the more that happens for me, the more people are going to discover the tunes I've done with those guys. I'd love one day to do a track with Devlin and Method Man. I'd like to work myself up to that ability to do things like that. But, it will take a lot of work to get up to that point."
