Conor Maynard - Conor Maynard eyeing up acoustic Ed Sheeran duet

Conor Maynard wants to work with Ed Sheeran.

The 'Vegas Girl' star is hoping to join forces with fellow British singer Ed or laid-back crooner John Mayer on his second album because he thinks their guitar skills would help show off his voice with a radically different acoustic sound.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''I want to work with singer/songwriters. I'm hoping to work with Ed Sheeran or John Mayer. The first album was very much about the big up-tempo numbers and now it's time to get into something a bit more intimate and acoustic to really show my voice.

''I'm not going to move away completely from the upbeat songs as I love doing them but I'd love to try some new stuff. You've got to experiment, don't you!''

The 20-year-old chart-topper worries people are still comparing him to Canadian superstar Justin Bieber and hopes fans with look past their virally-assisted rise to fame to distinguish between their different musical visions.

Conor explained: ''I definitely do feel flattered, he's obviously one of the biggest artists in the world right now so to be compared to that is really cool. But I feel like while there are some similarities, there are some differences too.

''The similarities are that we're both young and found fame on YouTube but the differences are musically and I think once people hear the music and the album they see the differences and we have different influences. As people hear the music they seem to realise that.''
