Ed Sheeran will release the follow-up to his award winning ‘+’ next February.
“My second album has taken full shape recently,” he said at Noise11.com today. “I don’t know if there will be any collaborations on it yet. I have a name for it but I can’t tell you the name just yet but it doesn’t start with a letter”.
Ed said the album has a release date. It will be coming out on February 17, 2014. He also gave us one song title. “Photograph, that will be the big one on the album,” he said.
Don’t expect to hear any new songs at his gigs. “Coldplay do that and big bands can ease in new songs to their set but my fans are so viral that the moment that I’d play a new song every one of them would hear it,” he said.
He wants his fans to hear the finished recordings when they are ready. “They are on YouTube and Twitter and I think there should be some surprise. I don’t want everyone knowing what the record is before they get it. I want them to listen to it first.”
Ed is currently in Australia.
Remaining dates for the tour are:
March 4, 5 and 6, Melbourne, Festival Hall
March 8, Wellington, New Zealand, TSB Arena
March 9, Auckland, New Zealand, Vector Arena
