Ed Sheeran - Ed Sheeran giving the UK a break

Ed Sheeran thinks it is important to ''give the UK a break''.

'The A-Team' singer has moved to the US to make his second album and thinks it is also a good opportunity to make sure he doesn't get overexposed in his home country.

He told the BBC: ''I think it's important to give the UK public a little bit of a break. I've been here for a long time, doing a lot of TV and radio, so you have to go away for a little bit. So I'm going to make the album over there.''

The star is to tour with Taylor Swift in the US, and is looking forward to staying away from the big US cities in Nashville, Tennesse.

He said: ''I wouldn't want to be in the city. Los Angeles is cool but you find a lot of douche bags there. I'd rather be surrounded by people in cowboy hats that spit tobacco.''

The 21-year-old also said he has a wealth of ideas for the new record.

He said: ''I've got around 26 songs for the next record and I've got another nine months on the road to keep writing as well.''

The 'Red' tour with Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran started earlier this month in Omaha, Nebraska.
