Bad news, gang. Ed Sheeran might well be quitting music after his Divide world tour.

The Castle On The Hill singer apparently wants to take a break for up to 10 years before he releases another album.

That’s a whole decade without Ed. Must. Stay. Strong.


A source told the Daily Star, “Ed has pretty much achieved everything there is to achieve in music.

“He absolutely loves what he does and is riding the wave of his success at the moment, but at the same time he wants a more normal life.

“When or if he gets married he wants to put his wife and kids first and not his career. If that means going AWOL for years then so be it.”


Ed has been dating Cherry Seaborn – who he met at school – for the past two years.

“The big test is if the relationship survives this album and the tour,” the source continued. “When they got together Ed was on his year off but every day in his schedule for the next year is practically full.”

The idea of not seeing/hearing Ed for a decade is a real bummer, but how cool would it be if he got married and had loads of Mini Eds? I feel like baby photos on Instagram would just about make up for the lack of music…
