The 'Lego House' singer admits he did most of his writing on the road with Snow Patrol.

Ed Sheeran has revealed that his forthcoming second studio album and the follow up to his hugely successful '+' is "structurally there".

The 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You' star told Billboard.com that he did most of the writing for the record during his North American tour with Snow Patrol and enjoyed the free time.

"I did the second album on tour with Snow Patrol," he confessed. "I found myself with a lot of free time, so I wrote a lot of songs and it's pretty much structurally there."

Ed has been teasing details of the record for the past few months and has previously revealed he has recorded with the likes of Snow Patrol and Taylor Swift.

He recently teamed up with UK rapper Devlin and is rumoured to be performing at the closing ceremony of the London Olympic Games.

The 'Small Bump' star is also expected to release his collaboration with Example for free this summer.

Ed will also be appearing at the iTunes Festival 2012 and head on a new UK tour in October.
