It looks like fans will be in for a treat, after online sources have reported that the British singer has been secretly writing a new album on a cruise ship. This has prompted many fans to search for terms like “Ed Sheeran new songs,” “Ed Sheeran tour,” “Ed Sheeran album,” and “Ed Sheeran new album.” Could fans expect a new batch of Ed Sheeran songs as part of a secret album? Get all the details here, including some facts on the Ed Sheeran family, the Ed Sheeran girlfriend. Thanks to our Ed Sheeran wiki, you won’t miss a thing!


Edward Christopher Sheeran was born on February 17, 1991 to parents John and Imogen, who are London-born. He also has an older brother named Matthew, who was born March 17,1989. Sheeran was born in Hebden Bridge, a town in Calderdale near Halifax, Yorkshire. His paternal grandparents were Irish, and according to Sheeran, his father came from a very large Catholic family. Growing up, Ed listened to Bob Dylan and Eric Clapton records, which clearly had an impact on his life and singing career.


You may not see her in the news that often but Ed Sheeran’s girlfriend is Cherry Seaborn and they’ve been dating for a year now. Seaborn and Sheeran first met in high school when they both attended Thomas Mills High School, in Suffolk. The 24-year-old attended Duke University, where she played hockey, before moving to the U.S. She was a championship hockey player at Durham University in the U.K. Taylor Swift even captured Instagram photos of Seaborn and Sheeran’s one-year anniversary! Being Swift’s friend usually means you’ll be in the spotlight often if not on her own social media accounts so it’s no surprise Swift caught a few shots of the two! Regardless, Sheeran has managed to keep his private life as separate from his career as possible.

Secret Songs 

The “Thinking Out Loud” singer has since taken a break from social media at the height of his singing career but it was reported that he has been seen aboard the Queen Mary 2 in a “cheap cabin.” This is where it is believed that he is writing songs for his third studio album. What a great place to be writing some new secret Ed Sheeran songs! Not to mention, this could mean that there’s a new Ed Sheeran tour in the works!

Wedding Song

According to Spotify, “Thinking Out Loud” has become the number one wedding song used by couples on their big day. A newly-wed couple danced to the hit song recently, mimicking the exact performance in the music video. They performed the routine perfectly and it’s quickly gaining internet attention.

Here’s hoping fans get exactly what they want, because after Sheeran’s hiatus, they’re dying for a new batch of Ed Sheeran songs and an epic Ed Sheeran tour.
