Ed Sheeran finally reveals details of the 'secret album' he's working on
Good things come to those who wait, and Ed Sheeran knows it.
Ed Sheeran has been working on a secret album for the last six years.
The 26-year-old has been constantly working on the project alongside his regular material, writing songs for this more experimental record since the release of his debut album + (Plus).
He has deliberately been extremely slow in the process of making this secret album and admits that of all the writing he does each year, he only puts aside one song a year aside.
Sheeran told The Sun that, "I've been working on this one since the same time as Plus. Every year I write a song that will go on it. 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."
He also revealed that he thinks his fans may be unhappy with the type of music on the album.
"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."
The singer, who took to the Glastonbury stage on Sunday, says that his fans will have to wait a while before they get to hear the secret album and that it may not even be the next record he releases.
"It will potentially come later, because it's been about six years in the making and it might be another three or four. So I might put other stuff out before then, just to have something out," he explains.
While the interview mostly focused on Sheeran's half-written, hidden album, he did admit that there was one other superstar he would love to team up with.
"I'm always, always up for working with Justin Bieber," he said. "I'd love to be involved. I've got some ideas. I think he's really talented. And his head's screwed on properly now."
