Ed Sheeran plans on ‘doing an Adele’ for second album

'The A Team' singer says he's almost finished writing 'heartbreak' album

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.
