LONDON (CelebrityAccess) – Following the close to Ed Sheeran’s record-smashing ÷ Tour in his hometown of Ipswich Monday evening, the singer-songwriter’s manager Stuart Camp has opened up about what’s next for the globally successful superstar.
In a recent interview with MusicWeek, Camp, who is the founder of Grumpy Old Management, said: “He’ll go straight back into recording mode relatively soon. He won’t sit still for long. He’s not the holiday sort.”
While Camp noted that Sheeran is “already recording and he’ll carry on, do a few days here and there for the next 12 months,” he said that he does not expect a new full-length album from him until “spring-summer 2021 at the earliest”.
Camp also told the publication that Sheeran is already thinking about how he can top his own touring record next time out saying: “There are talks about what we do next, whether there is a band involved or we do it in the round. We’ve already started to have ideas on that, but the danger when you’ve been on a tour like this for two-and-a-half years is that everything’s a knee-jerk reaction. The simple reaction would be, ‘We’ll have flying dragons and a 50-piece orchestra next time’, but let’s just calm down for a minute and talk again at the end of the year, once the dust has settled and you’re not changing for change’s sake. But we might present ourselves differently next time.”
Sheeran’s ÷ Tour broke the all-time records for attendance and concert grosses, while his ÷ album has sold over 17 million units worldwide.
