Ed Sheeran’s new album 2017 is on the minds of his fans, as the English musician broke his social media silence with a caption-less photo on Instagram (@teddysphotos). Ed Sheeran’s Twitter, Instagram and other social media profiles are now a simple, baby blue image, exactly one year after he publicly announced he would be taking a break from the Internet.
In his post from a year ago, he wrote, “Hello all. I’m taking a break from my phone, emails and all social media for a while, I’ve had such an amazing ride over the last 5 years but I find myself seeing the world through a screen and not my eyes…” The post continued to explain that he is seeking the opportunity to travel the world and see all the things he’s 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.” Fans were excited to hear this part! “See you all next autumn, and thank you for being amazing. Ed x”. To see the post, visit Ed Sheeran’s Instagram or check out the image below!
