Ed Sheeran has almost finished next album

Ed Sheeran, who's currently sitting pretty at the top of the UK Albums Chart with '+', has told The Daily Star that his follow-up album is almost finished.

The 20-year-old will be "doing an Adele", as the album's based on his recent break-up:

"I'll probably end up doing an Adele. I've just got out of a four-year relationship so I'll base the whole album around the break-up and hopefully sell as many copies as she does.

"I've done 90% of the backbone for the next album. It's going to have a bigger sound, it'll be more guitar-based and I'm looking forward to getting stuck into it."

Sheeran's '+' sold over 100,000 copies last week, he said:

"I knew I was going t be No 1 by last Wednesday as my album was outselling the rest of the top five put together."
