89.7 Bay hitmaker Ed Sheeran to take a break from music

Ed Sheeran has revealed he is taking a break from music after working ‘non stop’ for the past two years.

The 89.7 Bay favourite said that he will return with more hits after he has spent time travelling, writing and reading, and when he has ‘lived a little more’.

Ed, 28, said in a message to his 32.2 million Instagram followers: ‘Hello all. Gonna go on another break again.

‘The Divide era and tour changed my life in so many ways, but now it’s all over it’s time to go out and see some more of the world.

‘I’ve been a bit non stop since 2017 so I’m just gonna take a breather to travel, write and read. I’ll be off all social media until it’s time to come back.

‘To my family and friends, see ya when I see ya – and to my fans, thank you for always being amazing.

‘I promise to be back with some new music when the time is right and I’ve lived a little more to actually have something to write about.’

Ed previously took a break from work and his social media platforms in 2016.

His two-year Divide tour ended this year after he played to nine million fans in nearly 50 countries across 260 shows.
