My new album ÷ holds a very special place in my heart and I really believe this is my best work to date. I’ve been eager to get back and I couldn’t be more excited for the release.
Sheeran said: “Hello 2017! I’ve been working hard on the new material and I hope you can be as excited about it as I am.
