Ed Sheeran recently released his new single 'Bad Habits' which marked his return to music after a year-long hiatus from media glare.  During their break, Sheeran tied the knot with Cheri Seaborn and welcomed their first child, Lyra, in September 2020.

 Now fans are demanding the singer's new album as he is working again.  In the midst of all this, Sheeran's manager Stuart Camp recently talked about his upcoming album, touring plans, and more.

 In an interview, Stuart shared what fans can expect from the album and how they will "both surprise and comfort people".

 "When you're an established performer at that level, you can play a little dangerously with a single back at first, because you know you're going to get some exposure," Camp tells Variety.  “We knew we could take a little risk – however you balance that risk with telling yourself about that slight risk two minutes before it came out!”

 Camp says that 'Bad Habits' is not necessarily representative of the album's sound as it is in decline, although "it is indicative of a different approach to a lot of songs."

 "It will both surprise and comfort people," he says.  "There are some generic ed songs, but some more daring ones as well."
 He confirmed that fans would get a Sheeran album this year, but did not provide any specifics.

 He says the plan is to "hit him hard with another single and album in the autumn", and although he declined to give a date, he said, "There will be an album this year, but I can't give you any.  Can tell more than that."

 He also teased that plans for the tour are currently underway, which include "setting aside most of 2023 for North America".

 “If we are given permission for two to three years, we will tour, and there may be more records in that period,” says Camp.  “If we tour for that long, I think there will be two albums within that cycle.  Since this record took so long to make, we actually have a lot of songs, so it could be relatively quick.  They could really release an album of acoustic ballads tomorrow if they wanted to!

 The album will be Sheeran's first since 2017's 'Divide', which sold 672,000 copies in the UK in its first week, the third highest sale ever (beyond only Adele's '25' and Oasis' 'Be Here Now').  later), according to Variety.
