Ed Sheeran’s syrupy, Grammy-winning single “Thinking Out Loud” is now at the center of two lawsuits.

The ginger troubadour was first sued over the hit song last year by the heirs of Edward Townsend, Jr., a co-writer of Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On,” which they claim “Thinking Out Loud” cribs from enough to warrant a lawsuit.

The new suit, filed today in federal court in New York by a company called Structured Asset Sales (SAS), follows a failed attempt by SAS to join the Townsend lawsuit (what’s called “intervening”). That request to intervene in that case was turned down on June 11, 2018.
