Ed Sheeran admits that '+' was "pretty much a demo album"

British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has described his chart-topping debut album '+' as a mere "demo" that was recorded 'last minute with no budget'.

Although the cut has been certified quadruple Platinum in the UK, the 'Little Bird' star explained that he's delighted with its success in the USA considering how quickly it was put together:

"It's awesome to be able to have an album that ended up in the top five and ended up being a minor hit so far. We're still working on it right now. The album is pretty much a demo album that was made for next to no budget and put together quite last minute."

"But I love it. At the time, it was the best piece of work I could put out. The singles that are coming off the album very much represent me as a musician and an artist."

He also added to MTV News that his future material will be an extension of what his fans know and love because it's not only what he enjoys, but it's been so well-received that he plans to "keep building" on it:

"I think I'm gonna keep building on what I've done. Don't fix it if it isn't broken. I loved the music that I tour and play and write. I think it would be foolish to create something that I wasn't totally happy with. So I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing and building on what I've built so far."

Sheeran performed at last night's (August 12) Olympic Closing Ceremony (pictured below) and told his 2.9 million Twitter followers: "That was SO much fun! Absolute honour."
