Ed Sheeran could be about to quit the music industry

Ed Sheeran may take a long break from music and might even quit altogether following the huge success of his third album.

The superstar singer has a sell-out arena tour to compete and will consider his future when he returns home.

The 26-year-old is keen to settle down and live a ‘normal life’ after several years of touring, writing, and hanging out with the most famous musicians in the world.

Ed Sheeran could quit the music industry

A source told the Daily Star: “Ed has pretty much achieved everything there is to achieve in music. He absolutely loves what he does and is riding the wave of his success at the moment, but at the same time he wants a more normal life.”

Sheeran’s album ÷ has topped the charts in dozens of countries and sold millions of copies around the world. It features a song called ‘Galway Girl’ which was written with Irish band Beoga and is a nod to Sheeran’s Irish heritage.

However, the time could have come for him to settle down. He has been dating a former school friend Cherry Seaborn for the past two years and after everything he has achieved he is tempted to put a normal life ahead of the cut throat world of the music industry.

The source continued: “When or if he gets married he wants to put his wife and kids first and not his career. If that means going AWOL for years then so be it. When they got together Ed was on his year off but every day in his schedule for the next year is practically full.”
