Here is the video of Ed Sheeran’s cover of the Bob Dylan protest song ‘Masters of War.’ It is the British singer-songwriter’s contribution to the One Campaign’s Agit8 initiative which coincides with the June 2013 G8 Summit in Northern Ireland. More details and the full clip are below, after the jump.
Watch video above. As noted, the song Ed Sheeran performed is ‘Masters of War,’ which is a 1963 protest song by Bob Dylan. It is one of a number of such recordings of protest songs by music artists — U2, Sting, will.i.am, Tom Morello, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Mumford & Sons, and Green Day among others — in support of the One Campaign’s initiative. The organization, co-founded by Bono, has a mission to address the issue of global poverty. There are more performances at the official Web site; direct link here.
