As you can see we have a brand new look here at Ed Sheeran Fan! We just love the colors and the scrapbook feel and we hope you do as well. There still isn’t much news to report on Ed but that will change soon enough. For the time being we’ll be working on fixing the broken images in our gallery as well as adding missing photos, and a number of small changes around the main site.
As we’re sure many of you are aware, Ed is currently taking some VERY well deserved time off from his phone, emails and social media while he creates album #3!
In his absence, we just wanted to share with you the fantastic news that Ed has been nominated for two BRITs – he’s in the running to win both ‘British Artist Video Of The Year’ for ‘Photograph’ and best ‘British Single’ with ‘Bloodstream’.

Ed has taken to instagram with a note to his family, friends & supporters. Read it below.
I’m taking a break from my phone, emails and all social media for awhile. I’ve had such an amazing ride over the last five years but I find myself seeing the world through a screen and not my eyes, so I’m taking this opportunity of me not having to be anywhere or do anything to travel the world and see everything I missed. To my family and friends, if you love me you will understand me buggering off for a bit, to my fans, the 3rd album is on its way and is the best thing I have made thus far. See you all next autumn and thank you for being amazing.
