After mysteriously teasing his return to the scene with new social artwork earlier in December, Ed Sheeran has kicked off 2017 by confirming new music is just around the corner.

Tweeting a short clip earlier today (which you can see below), Sheeran announced that “new music [will be] coming Friday” – whether that’s a single, a buzz track or even an entirely new project remains to be seen (Ed’s definitely the kind of artist who would drop a full surprise album in one go!), however it’s widely-known that he’s been putting the finishing touches to the follow-up to 2014’s hugely-successful X, which spawned two Grammy Awards for Thinking Out Loud.

In related news, it’s strongly rumoured Ed will headline this summer’s Glastonbury Festival, hitting the Pyramid Stage on Saturday 25th June. Full info here.
