Pop star pens song about former love for new album

Ed Sheeran has penned a song about an ex-girlfriend – and it features on his new album.

The A Team singer – who has announced his new album ‘x’ will be released on June 23rd, admitted that one track on the record is a “true story” about a former lover.

He said, “If you date a songwriter, prepare to have songs written about you.”

Ed may have taken a leaf out of his close pal Taylor Swift’s book  who has written a number of songs about her ex-boyfriends, including One Direction’s Harry Styles.

Ed said the track “could have gotten nastier” and claims the song is a “100 per cent true story”.

The 23-year-old singer has posted details of his new album on Twitter, the follow-up to 2011’s ‘+’, which sold 102,000 copies in its first week on sale.
