His second studio album, x, was released in 2014. It also peaked at No.1 and won the Brit Award for Album of the Year.
Sheeran has broken records in the live sphere. In July 2015 he took to the stage of Wembley Stadium, solo, to play to 240,000 people over three consecutive sold-out nights. Moreover, he's also been involved in an array of spellbinding collaborative performances. In 2012, Sheeran performed at the London Olympics' closing ceremony alongside members of Pink Floyd and Genesis, and in 2015 he shared the stage with Beyoncé and Gary Clark Jr at that year's Grammy tribute for Stevie Wonder.
After taking some time off, the now 25-year-old Sheeran has been dominating the charts worldwide with his two latest songs – Shape of You and Castle on the Hill. He'll be releasing his genre-defying third studio album, ÷, in early March 2017 and launching a worldwide tour shortly after, with stops in several UK cities in April and early May.
