Ed Sheeran Explains Why He’s Taking Social Media Break

Ed has announced that he'll be taking a hiatus from all social media.


Sad news for Ed Sheeran’s followers – they won’t be getting many updates for a while. The singer has explained that he needs to take a break from social media so he can stop viewing the world through a screen. Ed also commented that he’s now setting off to travel the world and enjoy some time off:

‘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 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.’

The singer thanked everyone close to him for their support and he also reassured fans that his new material is going to be his best yet:

‘To my family and friends, if you love me, you will understand me buggering off for a bit, to my fans the third 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.’

He admitted that taking a step back from social media will be a big change for him:

“I think a break for me is coming off my phone, social media and emails. I am constantly on my phone, texting, replying to emails, on Twitter, on Snapchat, on Facebook.”
