Ed Sheeran has revealed that his next album is already written.

However, the followup to his successful debut album '+' probably won't be released until next year.

Ed told Billboard, "It's early next year. It was going to be this year but I don't finish touring till October and then there's no time to get a plan together. I'm going to spend October, November, December planning and then just smash it out next year."

Sheeran said all the songs are written for the new album and he plans to head into the studio to start recording in August.
