Ed Sheeran is going on another big break after he finishes up his current world tour.
He revealed the bombshell while speaking to BBC Radio 2’s Jo Whiley. He explained: ”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.”
Earlier this year he spoke about his next album, saying: ”The reason it’s not a pop album is people expect you to come and the next album they’re going to be like ‘it has to be bigger than ‘Shape of You’ and it has to sell more than this’, but if I control it and go ‘here’s a lo-fi record that I really f****** love,’ my fans are gonna be like ‘Yay!’, and the pop world are gonna be like ‘oh well, maybe the next one.’ ”
