Ed Sheeran Has Already Started Working On His Fourth Album

Singer Ed Sheeran says he has been working on his fourth album for over six years. He says the album will be "very acoustic".

The 26-year-old says he has "six or seven" tracks for the new album after writing a song every year since 2011, reports dailymail.co.uk.

Since soaring to international prominence with "+" in 2011, Sheeran later released 2014's "X" (Multiply) and "÷" (Divide) earlier this year to huge critical and commercial success.

"I've been working on this one (fourth album) since the same time as '+'. Every year I write a song that will go on it," Sheeran told The Sun newspaper.

The "Photograph" hitmaker added: "So, I have about six, seven at the moment. It's not necessarily experimental, but I don't think there'll be any hot radio songs on it this time. It's a very acoustic record, very acoustic. It's within that vein."
