Ed Sheeran has once again defended the criticism against Taylor Swift's self-penned love songs saying the country songstress is a great songwriter for only writing tracks that have “relevance” and are “personal” to her while also revealing details of his upcoming third album.
The 21-year-old Brit crooner has been supporting the 'I Knew You Were Trouble' singer on the US and Canadian dates of her 'Red' tour since March and it seems he's having the time of his life revealing that Taylor has acted as the perfect host.

“She’s great to be on tour with, she treats me and the crew very well. I’m really enjoying the tour,” Taylor told HollywoodLife.
Taylor, 23, is renowned for writing songs about her failed romances with high profile stars, with Harry Styles, Taylor Lautner and John Mayer among them, and while some roll their eyes when the pop starlet releases yet another ode to her ex, Ed thinks her ballads are genius.
“I think you sing about what you know. There’s nothing worse than singing a song that has no relevance to you, and all the songs she’s singing have a deep relevance to her,” Ed added. “They're all personal.”

Ed is a fan of Taylor's style of songwriting so much that he is taking a similar approach to his upcoming second album, expected for release next year.
“It’s not an album about fame and fortune, it’s an album about relationships,” Ed revealed.
Taylor and Ed will perform their second date at the Jobing.com Arena in Glendale tonight.
