Ed Sheeran To Take A Break From Music After World Tour

Ed Sheeran is currently taking the world by storm, but the singer has said that he’s planning on taking a step back from the industry once he finishes the tour that he’s on at the moment, because he thinks that his next release will be “bigger” if he waits a while.

Ed’s face has literally been EVERYWHERE for months now, but it seems like he’s going to be giving some other artists a chance to crack the charts very soon, because he says that he wants to “avoid overkill” by giving himself some time off. This means that he’s going to put back the release of his Christmas single until next year. The red headed singer told The Sun: “I haven’t had any time off since before I signed my record deal and I want some! I’ll do what I enjoy and it won’t feel like work.”

He then added: “(The Christmas song) won’t be out this Christmas. I have ‘Thinking Out Loud’ as a single going into Christmas. If I saw an artist have a string of hits, an album that did well, a hit going into Christmas and then they did a Christmas single I’d think, ‘Ooh, that’s overkill’.

“If my song came out next year or the year after, when I haven’t released anything for a while, it will be bigger,” Sheeran continued.

Ed is currently in the middle of his world tour, with him having two more nights left at London’s O2 arena before he then hits Birmingham later on this week.
