Ed Sheeran‘s love of Heinz ketchup is no secret, but it also turns out he loves another kind of red condiment, hot sauce.

Ed announced that he’s releasing his own brand of hot sauce called Tingly Teds, a name inspired by his childhood nickname “Ted.” He explained, “I felt like something was profoundly missing in my life, and after much soul searching, I realised it was a proper hot sauce.”

Ed also explained that his love of spicy food has grown since he’s gotten older and said his hot sauce has “the same consistency of ketchup.”

Ed says that he developed the hot sauce over time with some expert hot sauce makers choosing the best flavors and the best chilis. He carries it in his suitcase wherever he goes and he has it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. He also say you can have it on anything, but warns “except bananas.”

Right now, it comes in two flavors: Tingly Sauce and Xtra Tingly Sauce. He also shared that his hot sauce is “coming to a shelf near you soon.”

Taylor, Stevie, Elton and Billy Announce Record Store Day Releases: Get the Full List

You need to dust off that turntable unless of course you’re like me and you’ve never stopped using it.  Either way, Record Store Day has announced its list of exclusive releases for 2023. The event only happens in independent record stores on April 22.

Record Store Day is an annual event that was first held in 2008 to celebrate independent record stores and the unique culture surrounding them. The event takes place each year and typically features a variety of exclusive releases, in-store performances, and other special events.

The purpose of the special day is to draw attention to the importance of independent record stores as cultural hubs and to encourage people to visit and support them. In recent years, the event has grown in popularity and now includes thousands of participating stores in countries around the world.

Releases typically include limited-edition vinyl records and other merchandise from a wide range of artists. Some of these releases are previously unreleased recordings, while others are special editions of classic albums or compilations of rare tracks.

Some recommended Central Jersey record stores include Spina Records in New Brunswick, Revilla in Milltown, and Princeton Record Exchange.

Here are a few of the limited edition vinyl albums that will be hitting these local record stores…

  • Taylor Swift - Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions

    The album is on double-grey vinyl, and features live performances of all the songs from Taylor’s 2020 album folklore. It was recorded at Long Pond Studio and includes “Cardigan,” “Betty,” “Exile,” August” and “The Lakes.”
