Ed Sheeran to go away
Ed Sheeran says he’s moving to rural America for a while, and who am I to oppose that?
Chatting away to The Sun, the Framlingham-raised realist, who’s soon to start a US tour with his trampolining pal Taylor Swift, says: “I’m moving to the States for a bit. I love New York but it’s too similar to London. I still don’t own a place in London, I own one in the country in England because I like having the escape”. Still talking, he adds: “I wouldn’t want to be in the city. Los Angeles is cool but you find a lot of douchebags there. I’d rather be surrounded by people in cowboy hats that spit tobacco”.
“Douchebags”, very American. Ed says his in-development new LP is “on its way”, and that we can anticipate its release in “February 2014”. So really, it’s less “on its way” than “a year away” isn’t it, Ed?
