Ed Sheeran Is Finally Back On Instagram And His Newest Post Is VERY Revealing
It's been exactly one year since his last post. He's reliable like that, our Ed.
Remember Ed Sheeran? Of course you do, but we bet you haven’t thought of him in a while. It’s funny how when someone disappears from the internet they basically disappear IRL too. Don’t think for a second, however, that Ed’s social media sabbatical was a also a sabbatical from work.
The singer returned to social media today with a very suggestive post indeed: one that has led fans to believe a new album could be on the way soon.
Rather than sharing an “I’m back!” message, Ed instead updated his Twitter, Instagram and Facebook profile pics to a single sky blue square, and shared the same image as a post on each platform too.
No words, no selfies, just a square.

So what does it all mean, and why are people so sure it’s a sign an album is coming? Let’s decode…
It’s a single colour.
Ed’s previous albums, + and x, were both branded with one single colour, orange for + in 2011, and green for x in 2014. So posting just one colour makes sense.
He’s already told us a third album is en route.
In his final post before quitting social media the singer told fans a third album was “on the way” and called it the “best thing” he had made so far.
He’s had plenty of time to put together new work – and has lots to write about, too.
It’s been a full year since Ed’s last appearance on social media, and a full year since he spoke about new music. In that time he’s found a new girlfriend (Cherry Seaborn), and the two seem inseparable last time we checked, so don’t expect any angry Don’t-esque diatribes on this album.
Fingers crossed the new album comes very soon, because that would make Christmas present shopping a WHOLE lot easier.
