Could this be an indication that new music is on the way? While Sheeran hasn’t revealed any details about his forthcoming album, he said last year that he would be working on it during his social media break.

“To my family and friends, if you love me you will understand me buggering off for a bit, to my fans, the 3rd album is on its way and is the best thing I have made thus far. See you all next autumn, and thank you for being amazing,” he wrote at the time.
