Ed Sheeran is trying to make as much money "as possible" from music royalties in 2017.
The chart-topping singer-songwriter has recently penned a number of soon-to-be-released tracks for other artists and Ed is hoping that his hard work will eventually pay off.
Ed quipped: "I am hell-bent on trying to get as many cuts for other artists this year as possible."
The flame-haired star also that revealed one of the tracks will be released in the very near future.
Ed told The Sun newspaper: "I've got a lot of stuff coming out - you'll hear one of them very, very soon. They will all come out by the end of the year.
"There are seven or eight main singles coming out for other people."
The 26-year-old singer previously wrote Justin Bieber's hit single 'Love Yourself', while he has also been working with the likes of Zara Larsson and James Blunt.
Meanwhile, Ed recently voiced his support for Justin, saying the Canadian star must have found it "very tough" growing up in the spotlight.
The 'Thinking Out Loud' hitmaker praised Justin for "figuring out the balance" in life, saying he sees him as a "completely different person" now.
Ed said: "He's so different now. He's completely sober, clean, just drinks water - friendly, smiley. It's a completely different person. It's really, really nice to see.
"If you're followed around 24/7 with a camera, they're going to catch every moment of you, and not every human is perfect. We all make mistakes, and I think it must have been very tough being 17 and having a flashing camera in your face 24/7. He's someone who's definitely figured out the balance now."
