Ed Sheeran has started work on his third album and revealed new songs "poured out" of him during a month's holiday he had over Christmas

Ed Sheeran has started work on his third album.

The 23-year-old singer-songwriter became the biggest selling artist in the UK in 2014 with the release of his second record, 'x', and has already written several songs for his currently untitled third LP, because it would be "weird" if he quit the industry.

He joked: "If I didn't release a third album it would be a bit weird."

However, the 'Sing' hitmaker - who performed an intimate show in central London on Thursday (22.01.15) as part of BBC Radio 2's 'In Concert' series - admitted the process of making his next LP has already been lengthy because he only wrote three songs in an eight month period last year while he toured around the world.

He explained: "I started working on the third album as soon as I handed in the second album, but I just didn't write any songs. I'd written, like, three for it, I just didn't write any songs for like, eight months."

Despite a slow start, Ed revealed he made great progress with songs for the album during his winter break, because the music "poured out" of him.

Speaking on BBC's 'The One Show', he said: "I had a month off for Christmas which was wicked, and the songs just poured out which was good."
