In a lengthy post onInstagramtitled “Please read x”, the Thinking Out Loud hit maker wrote,

“Hello all. I’m taking a break from my phone, emails and all social media for a while. I’ve had such an amazing ride over the last 5 years but I find myself seeing the world through a screen and not my eyes so I’m taking this opportunity of me not having to be anywhere or do anything to travel the world and see everything I missed.

“To my family and friends, if you love me you will understand me buggering off for a bit, to my fans, the 3rd album is on its way and is thebest thing I have made thus far. See you all next autumn, and thank you for being amazing. Ed x”.

Shortly before he performed the final date of his Multiply tour in Auckland, New Zealand on Saturday, he wrote on Twitter, “One more show on the Multiply tour then I’m buggering off for a while. What a way to end it!”

During his final tour performance on Saturday, Sheeran took to the stage in an All Blacks jersey with New Zealand rugby legend Jonah Lomu’s name and shirt number emblazoned on the back. Lomu died at the age of 40 on 18 November

After the gig at the Mount Smart Stadium, he added, “Happy Xmas (Tour is over)”, in a reference to John Lennon’s festive song Happy Xmas (War is Over), before announcing his self-imposed hiatus.

His followers sent messages of support, but most were excited about the update on his third album. A title and release date for the record has not been announced.

Sheeran has been on his Multiply tour since August, 2014, andwill be using his well-earnedbreak to get ear surgery.
