Ed Sheeran says he's going to 'do an Adele' on his second album.

Currently sitting at the top of the albums chart with debut '+', the Suffolk singer songwriter is already planning his second album.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Sheeran says he's done "90% of the backbone" for his next record, which will be about his ex-girlfriend.

"I've just got out of a four-year relationship so I'll base the whole album around the break-up and hopefully sell as many copies as she [Adele] does."

He added: "It's going to have a bigger sound, it'll be more guitar-based, and I'm looking forward to getting stuck into it."

'The A Team' singer sold more than 100,000 copies of '+' to reach No 1 last Sunday (September 18). He begins a UK tour in Oxford on October 2.
