Ed celebrated his 30th birthday on Feb 17th with an Instagram post of him as a child dressed as a pirate with the caption,

“Currently dressed the same as I was on my 3rd birthday about to chow down on Colin the pirate caterpillar (cake), poor bloke.”

He then went on to suggest that he has some big plans for 2021 by saying,

“I’ll be back online with the 4th instalment in the series later this year, until then xx.”

Fans have taken this to be a tease for a fourth album to follow on from PLUS, MULTIPLY and DIVIDE, the last of which came out in 2019. He did release a new song called Afterglow in December, but made it clear at the time that it was not related to a new album,

“Afterglow is a song I wrote last year that I wanted to release for you, it’s not the first single from the next album, it’s just a song I love, and hope you love too. Enjoy!”

You can enjoy that song  and everything else Ed has released so far on EXCLUSIVELY ED SHEERAN and as with all our stations you can be sure that when a new album drops we will be featuring it.
