Ed Sheeran knows you have questions about Taylor Swift’s plans to release a new album — but you’ll likely have to listen to “a full year of just all Ed” before you get to hear it.
During an interview with BBC, the “Shape of You” singer discussed his upcoming album, Divide, and his plans for the year. When speaking about his career, Sheeran asserted that 2017 would be his high point, mainly because most of his competition released their projects last year.
“I have a feeling about it,” he said. “Seventeen is my lucky number, and everyone I was scared of releasing of albums around me released them all last year — people like Beyoncé and the Weekend and Bruno Mars.”
He went on to tease a potential release date for Taylor Swift’s next album.
“Taylor [Swift] isn’t going to be releasing until probably the end of this year — Christmas is the smartest time to release because that’s when everyone buys records,” he said.
Swift hasn’t released an album since 2014’s 1989, which helped her snag the Album of the Year award at last year’s Grammys.
