Ed Sheeran was due to release his album much earlier but didn't because of Trump

Thanks, Trump.

Turns out Ed Sheeran was due to release music in November but decided not to because of Trump. He didn't want to release his new music in the middle of the "sh*t storm" that was the Presidential Election.

He made a dramatic return to social media in December after a one-year hiatus and then followed up earlier this month with two news singles from his upcoming album.

But we could have been enjoying his album by now if it wasn't for Trump.

According to Metro, he was telling Zane Lowe about his decision to change of plan.

He said:

"The plan was to come in September and then the album was meant to come in November but the week the album was coming out was the week the presidential elections that was just a sh*t storm of media.

And I was like obviously if I come out with a record then no one’s gonna care and then the week after Bruno [Mars] came out, the week after The Weeknd came out and I was like…"

It was a wise decision in fairness.
