Ed Sheeran announced in a recent Instagram post that he is taking a break from all social media, his phone, and emails. 

“I’ve had such an amazing ride over the last 5 years,” he wrote, “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.”

He continued, “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.” See the full post below.

Sheeran, who recently finished a world tour for his album x, hinted at a break last week. “One more show on the Multiply tour then I’m buggering off for a while,” he tweeted. In a funny turn of events, Sheeran was named Facebook’s most talked-about entertainer of 2015, even beating active social media user Taylor Swift
