Ed Sheeran has announced his music comeback – four months after becoming a dad.

A year ago the 29-year-old told fans he was “taking a breather to travel, write and read”.

It meant fans were left without the hope of new music from the Shape of You Singer.

He posted on Christmas 2019: “Hello all. Gonna go on another break again.

“The Divide era and tour changed my life in so many ways, but now it’s all over it’s time to go out and see some more of the world.

“I’ve been a bit non-stop since 2017 so I’m just gonna take a breather to travel, write and read.

“I’ll be off all social media until it’s time to come back.

“To my family and friends, see ya when I see ya, and to my fans, thank you for always being amazing. I promise to be back with some new music when the time is right, and I’ve lived a little more to actually have something to write about.”

But they were overjoyed when he revealed he’d become a dad in September.

His wife Cherry Seaborn gave birth in to a baby girl named Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran.

Lyra’s adorable name is inspired by the main character in Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials series, which Ed has called the “best books I’ve ever read”.


Cherry took “unlimited” time out of her high-powered city job after making plans to start a family.

Ed is worth an estimated £200million after selling more than 150million records worldwide.
