As we all waited patiently for something new from Ed Sheeran for what seemed like forever, the wait is finally over as the 23 year old musician shared news on his upcoming second album, as well as releasing the first single; Sing.
Believe it or not, it’s been nearly three years since the release of Sheeran’s debut, ‘+‘, and the Halifax born singer has decided to stick with the math-symbol-esque title theme by announcing the second album to be called ‘x’.
My 2nd album is called ‘x’ or ‘multiply’ and will released on the 23rd of June worldwide. Can’t wait for you guys to hear it

‘x’ sees Ed Sheeran working with the likes of Pharrell Williams and Rick Rubin, as well as songs getting nods of approval from BFF Taylor Swift. Just when you think there’s only so much you can do with a voice and a guitar, Sheeran really ups his game with the release of Sing (listen in full here).
Sing is available on iTunes now, and album ‘x’ is scheduled for release June 23rd.
