AceShowbiz - Ed Sheeran's first demo album has sold at auction for $65,000 (£50,000).
The new dad was just 13 when he recorded the "Spinning Man" tracks and made 20 copies - 19 of which he still owns.
But one tape got out and it became a hot auction item this week (ends11Sep20) after it was found locked away in a drawer.
A spokesman for Omega Auctions says, "It's an incredible price! We expected it to sell well but that certainly exceeded our expectations. It was a fierce battle between four or five very serious bidders."
In his book, "Ed Sheeran: A Visual Journey", the "Perfect" singer revealed he wrote the "Spinning Man" tracks after his first love broke his heart.
The demo sale news comes a week after it was announced Ed and his wife Cherry had become parents to daughter Lyra Antarctica.
