The film will have a limited theatrical release in New York on August 17 and Los Angeles on August 24 before becoming available on Apple Music on August 28th.

A new trailer for the film was recently released. Watch the trailer below.
“I decided to make something different,” said Cummings, on being able to provide an authentic look into Ed’s life and creative process as only family can. “I wasn’t going to show fame. I didn’t want paparazzi, screaming fans or big stadiums. I didn’t want to have sit down interviews because I didn’t want to tell the audience how something came to be, I just wanted to show them. And I wanted the focus to be the songwriting.”
‘Songwriter‘ is an intimate and personal look into the writing process of one of the world’s biggest artists – Ed Sheeran. Filmed by Murray Cummings, ‘Songwriter’ details the creation of Sheeran’s third studio album ‘÷’ and gives authentic insight into his life through never-before-seen home videos. Witness his creativity firsthand, from the very first chord to the finishing touch – the sounds become the songs on August 28, exclusively on Apple Music.
