A documentary featuring Ed Sheeran recording parts of his latest album on board Cunard flagship Queen Mary 2 is to be shown at a New York film festival tonight.

The chart-topping singer songwriter made the voyage from New York to Southampton while in the process of recording the Divide album.

Staff on board set up a pop-up studio so he could record tracks while making the seven-night transatlantic crossing.

Filmed by his cousin, who also travelled on board the ship, the documentary shows Sheeran meeting the captain of QM2 and recording in the temporary studio.

The Songwriter film is to be shown at the Tribeca Film Festival.
