After winning a plagiarism lawsuit related to his song “Shape Of You” on WednesdaySinger Ed Sheeran shares that he has been filming the entire recording process for his album for years just to ward off other claims.

“Now I just film everything, everything is on film,” says Sheeran BBC.

“We had claims on the songs and we say, well, here’s the footage and you watch it. You’ll see there’s nothing there,” he adds.

High Court Judge Antony Zacaroli ruled in Sheeran’s favor this week, saying he “neither intentionally nor unknowingly” copied a phrase from the 2015 song “Oh Why” by Sami Chokri. despite a so-called “undeniable resemblance between the works”.

“It’s so painful to hear someone publicly and aggressively question their integrity,” said Sheeran, Snow Patrol’s John McDaid and producer Steven McCutcheon after the verdict. “It’s so painful to have to defend yourself against accusations that you did something you didn’t do and never would.”

This is far from the first lawsuit against Sheeran as a singer done one back in 2014 about his song “Photograph”. In the same BBC interview, Sheeran says he hasn’t played the song for a while and “personally” regrets not fighting the suit. Shortly thereafter, he began chronicling his songwriting process.

“I just stopped playing it,” he says. “It made me feel weird, it kind of made me dirty.”

Listen, we’d probably start recording our every creative step if we faced copyright lawsuits regularly. (Or we would just write better music.) On the bright side for the singer, when an inevitable documentary is filmed about one of modern music’s biggest names, there will be plenty of behind-the-scenes footage.
