A Little Info About This Lesson

"Photograph" is a song performed by English singer-songwriter, Ed Sheeran, for his second studio album, x in 2014. Johnny McDaid of Snow Patrol helped Sheeran write the song. McDaid had a piano loop from which the composition developed.

After recording many different versions, Sheeran decided to ask for help from Jeff Bhasker. This collaboration generated a version that Bhasker further improved.The song was inspired by Sheeran’s own experience having a long-distance relationship with his girlfriend.
