The 'Lego House' star admits he has written 20 songs in preparation for his second studio record.

Ed Sheeran has admitted that he has already penned 20 new songs for his upcoming second studio album and teased a possible duet with Snow Patrol.

The 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You' star told Perez Hilton that he has been writing with the Scottish outfit during their US tour as he looks to complete the follow up to BRIT nominated debut '+'. 

"I've done around 20 new songs for the new album and I've been writing a lot with the Snow Patrol boys as well," he confessed.

The 'Drunk' singer has been on tour in North America since March and recently was forced to cancel his final few shows citing "personal reasons" as the reason for the withdrawal.

The star was forced to take to his Twitter account to deny reports that he was heading to rehab upon his UK return and has promised US fans that he will be back later in the year for a new tour of the country.

Meanwhile, Ed will be heading to Wembley Stadium next month to perform alongside Usher, Coldplay and Katy Perry at Capital FM's Summertime Ball 2012.
