Just Who Is Ed Sheeran’s Supermarket Flowers Song About?

Last week at the Brit Awards Ed Sheeran debut his brand new single Supermarket Flowers and fans have been questioning who the single is about.

Now it’s been revealed that the single is written about his nan who sadly passed away.

During a interview with Radio 1 presenter Zane Lowe, Ed explained,

That’s the most special song on the record for me. My grandmother was very ill during the time I was making the record and passed away at the end of me making the record, so we wrote this song as a tribute and just left it on.

Talking about his grandmother he continued to say:

She was one of the nicest women you’d ever meet and she was my mum’s mum. It was written from my mum’s point of view; it was choosing loads of specific things and then just finishing it as a song.

Some of the lyrics in the song are just stunning and to know the meaning behind the song is even better.

What a lovely thing to do for his gran.
