ED SHEERAN’s personal life should be blissfully happy after I revealed news of his secret wedding earlier this week. Now his work is becoming all about collaborations, too.
I can reveal the music superstar’s fourth album, which he has been secretly working on, is planned to be entirely made up of duets.
Sources say that Ed will be putting out a duet with Justin Bieber[/caption]
My music sources tell me Ed – who wrote Justin Bieber’s 2015 hit Love Yourself – has again worked with the US chart-topper, as well as lesser- known hip-hop artists.
Ed’s next release is not expected to be an official album to complete the Plus, Multiply, Divide series, which he is delaying while he works on his Richard Curtis/Beatles film project.
But I think putting out a series of collaborations is a genius move by the prolific songwriter, who everyone in music – from Beyonce, Eminem and Taylor Swift to Andrea Bocelli – is simply desperate to work with.
The duets album is expected to come out this year or next, but could be kicked off with a series of single releases.

Andrea Bocelli could also pop up on Ed’s new duet album[/caption]
My Ed insiders say the album would be appropriate because his first-ever releases were a series of grime collaborations.
While we’d all love Subtract to come sooner rather than later, any new material from the genius that is Mr Sheeran is reason to celebrate.
I’ll be back on Friday on talkRADIO for Drivetime between 4pm and 7pm.
