The 'Lego House' singer gives fans an update on the themes in his second album.

Ed Sheeran has revealed his new album will focus more on the "relationship troubles" he has had over the past year.

The 'Small Bump' singer has been steadily working on his second studio record, the follow-up to 2011's '+' for the past year or so, and says it will be different in theme to his debut.

"This album has been a lot of relationship troubles I guess," Ed revealed in an interview with The Review this week. "The first album I was inspired by everything that around me.

"I was kind of growing up surrounded by a lot of very interesting people and had a lot of stories such as 'The A Team' and 'Small Bump' and stuff like that," the 'Lego House' star explained. "This record there has been more drama that has happened in my personal life, so I've written a lot about that."

Despite already having many of the songs for his new album already written, Ed says he won't be performing them anytime soon and has yet to record them all.

"I have written them, I just haven't worked out properly how to play them live," he added. "I'm getting there though, I'm getting there."
