As his singles from his debut album, ‘+,’ continue to impact the U.S. charts, Ed Sheeran has finished writing his sophomore album.
“I turned it in today,” he told Billboard while on the Billboard Music Awards’ blue carpet yesterday (May 19).
“It’s early next year,” Sheeran continued to say about the slated release date. “It was going to be this year but I don’t finish touring till October and then there’s no time to get a plan together. I’m going to spend October, November, December planning and then just smash it out next year.”
The singer isn’t pressed on the next steps of the creative process for the songs “are written [and] good” which he says the most important thing. “All the songs are written. I’m going in to record them in August. The direction will take shape then. The songs are good, which is the main thing. I think you can have good songs and then you can put any sort of production behind it but as long as the songs are good,” he said.
Ed Sheeran took the stage at last night’s award show to perform his “+” hit, “Lego House.” The song is climbing its way up the Hot 100 (No. 72 this week).
During rehearsals, Ed Sheeran joked with Billboard that he was attending as Taylor Swift’s plus-one. Sitting front row next to his tour-mate, Ed Sheeran popped up on the telecast several times. Taylor Swift won eight awards.

“Don’t expect much from the performance — I don’t have any dancers, or a backing band. But I do have some Christmas lights around my feet, so that’s exciting.”
Ed Sheeran is kidding. You should get excited about his performance of “Lego House” at the Billboard Music Awards tomorrow (May 19), airing live on ABC from Las Vegas.
His performance aside, there’s a chance you might be seeing a lot of the U.K. singer-songwriter during the actual telecast — his tour-mate Taylor Swift is a finalist in a whopping 11 categories, including Top Artist prize.
“I think I’m her plus-one, so it’s going to be quite weird sitting in the front row,” he said.
It’s been a whirlwind year for Sheeran, whose breakout single “The A Team” peaked at No. 16 on the Hot 100. When his album “+” debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart last year, it was the highest debut for a British male artist’s first album since 2006.
With “Lego House” climbing its way up the Hot 100 (No. 72 this week) and the Taylor tour going well, Sheeran said he’s seen some definite changes in his life.
“I don’t worry so much,” he admitted. “Which is kind of a bad thing. You get to a point where everyone does everything for you without you having to ask them.”
