Bad news for Ed Sheeran fans everywhere

So he did only just grace us with his latest album, but we can't deny that we are devastated over this Ed Sheeran news.

The star has revealed that his next album probably won’t be out until 2016.

What?! But that’s two whole years that we’ll have to wait!

While this will come as sad news to Ed’s legion of fans around the world, his reasoning behind the delay is most certainly justified.

Speaking to The Sun, the 23-year-old star admitted that he has not had a break since before signing his record deal, and he’s looking forward to taking some well-deserved time off.

“I haven’t had any time off since before I signed my record deal, and I want some! I’ll do what I enjoy and it won’t feel like work,” he said.

The hard-working singer added that he won’t be bringing out a Christmas single for fear that it would be “overkill”, saying: “If my song came out next year or the year after, when I haven’t released anything for a while, it will be bigger.”

There is no doubt that Ed’s one of the most dedicated musicians out there, so we think we’ll leave him off this time around….but we’ll be counting down the days until the new record is released!
