Ed Sheeran took the time the to thank fans who wished him a happy birthday and give them a little gift of their own - news that a new album is on the way.
Ed turned 30 this week, and shared an adorable throwback post on Instagram with the caption: "Thank you for all your wonderful messages, I feel very loved," he began. "Currently dressed the same as I was on my 3rd birthday, about to chow down on Colin the pirate caterpillar, poor bloke. I'll be back online with the 4th installment in the series later this year, until then xx,"
Ed's previous albums all shared an arithmetic theme (Plus +, Multiply x & Divide ÷) so most fans are speculating that the next album is going to be titled 'Subtract -' or something along those lines.
Although, Ed did surprise fans in July with No.6 Collaborations Project - an album that saw Ed take on different genres to what fans were used to with a huge array of collaborators.
Hopefully Ed will shed some more details on the '4th installment' to the series sooner rather than later - we simply can't wait!
