Ed Sheeran has ruled out releasing any new music in 2013.

The news, which to many will be a relief, means that the singer won't release the follow-up to his 2011 debut '+' until 2014 at the earliest.

"I'm on tour until September and this tour is so long I’ll need a break afterwards," he told The Sun. "I’ve written 26 songs for the new album but it won’t be released until early 2014 at the earliest."

Sheeran will set off for the US next week, kicking off an 84-date tour, which includes a stint supporting Taylor Swift.

Earlier this month, Ed Sheeran was voted the worst dressed man of the year by GQ. He was given the accolade ahead of Max George of The Wanted, political commentator Andrew Marr and Match of the Day pundit Robbie Savage. GQ referenced Sheeran's decision to wear a hoodie when performing at the 2012 Olympics among their reasons for naming him the least stylish man in Britain.

However, Sheeran didn't take the title too seriously and posted a number of tweets about it online. Starting off by saying, "Named Number One worst dressed male in GQ, glad they noticed." Sheeran later added: "I did wear a Burberry suit once."
