Ed Sheeran, who recently headlined Glastonbury for the first time ever, has reportedly revealed that he has been working on his fourth album for six years.
Sheeran told The Sun that he’s: “been working on this one since the same time as Plus [his debut album]. Every year [he writes]a song that will go on it. So [he has]about six, seven at the moment.”
He went on to tease that the sound of the album is a world away from anything he’s done before, claiming that, “it’s not necessarily experimental, but [he doesn’t]think there’ll be any hot radio songs on it this time. It’s a very acoustic record, very acoustic.”
Unfortunately, fans of Sheeran could have a wait as he suggests that it could be “three or four years” until its released. He did drop hints of a collaboration with DJ Khaled which might keep fans satiated in the meantime, saying “Me and DJ Khaled were talking about doing a song but I haven’t had any time to go in the studio, so I missed this album. But hopefully next year. I’m keeping open.”
The singer-songwriter was forced to defend himself on Monday after claims that he was using a “backing track” during his set at Glastonbury. He has clarified that it was in fact a loop station that he was using.
