Ed Sheeran is taking a break from social media

Bad news? Ed Sheeran is taking a break from social media.

Good news? The Grammy winner promises that his third album is in the works.

The 24-year-old British singer posted on Instagram: "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."

Sheeran did say he's working on a new album, calling it his best one yet.

He wrapped the post with: "See you all next autumn, and thank you for being amazing."
