Ed Sheeran Is Saying Goodbye to Social Media

One of the world’s favorite artists is taking a break from social media.

Looks like we won’t be hearing from Ed Sheeran online for a while, as the British singer-songwriter will be taking a hiatus on social media, as he deactivated his accounts last December 12, bidding goodbye to his 5.5 million Instagram followers and 16 million Twitter fans!

Not to worry, however, as this break isn’t for good: Ed will be back next autumn, with a third album on its way!

On Instagram, the ginger-haired singer announced:

“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 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. 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. See you all next autumn, and thank you for being amazing.”

Ed will also reportedly be turning off his phone as soon as 2016 rolls around.

We’ll miss you, Ed!
