The 'Lego House' singer says he can't believe his album is still riding high in the charts despite being released five months ago.

Ed Sheeran says he is “amazed and fascinated" by the continuing success of his debut solo album.

The British singer-songwriter released his first record ‘+’ in September 2011 which has achieved massive sales and spawned three hit singles with ‘The A Team’, ‘You Need Me, I Don’t Need You’ and ‘Lego House’.

“It amazes me,” Ed admitted to the Daily Star this week. “I don’t know where these people who keep buying my music every week come from or why they keep buying it.

“I was told statistically somebody is more likely to buy a song if they hear it three times on the radio,” he suggested. “I suppose because my music has had more radio plays, more people have picked it up.

Ed added: “It fascinates me”.

The 20 year-old singer is currently in Los Angeles working on a secret recording project that he promises will make his fans “go nuts”.
