Stephen: Ed Sheeran dropping the pop sound on next album

Sorry, Sheerios: Ed Sheeran’s next record isn’t going to be a pop album. Speaking to his pal George Ezra on the new “George Ezra & Friends” podcast, the ginger superstar explained, “The reason it’s not a pop album is people expect you to come [up with more pop tunes] and the next album they’re going to be like, ‘It has to be bigger than ‘Shape of You’ and it has to sell more than this,’ but if I control it and go, ‘Here’s a lo-fi record that I really f**king love,’ my fans are gonna be like ‘Yay!’ and the pop world are gonna be like, ‘Oh well, maybe the next one.'” Sheeran adds that his record label isn’t exactly thrilled with his decision. “The label really f**king hate that. They want a big pop album again, but I think that s**t’s dangerous.”
