Ed Sheeran’s next album ‘not before 2020’
ED SHEERAN’s next album won’t be out before 2020, the singer-songwriter has revealed.
The British star is currently touring the world with his 2017 smash Divide.
Sheeran is not expected to finish the tour until next September and has said he will take a break before working on his next album.
Speaking to Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2, he said: ‘I’ve got things coming out, I don’t know if they’re albums. But I’ve got things coming out. The next “album album” won’t be for a while.
‘After this, September is the end of tour next year, then I’m going to do another blackout and go away for a year. It worked last time for both me and the public, I think it’s good to have a little break.
‘The next album, no earlier than 2020. Late 2020.’
Sheeran, 27, also talked of his work with mental health charities. He said mental health issues ‘affect everyone’ and admitted he does not ‘really go outside a lot now’.
He said: ‘Mine kind of come and go. I don’t think I was born with it, I think the anxiousness comes out of… I don’t really go outside a lot now.
‘I often feel like I’m not one to talk about it because it’s not something I was born with, it’s something that’s developing.’
