The 'Lego House' star is apparently helping the country star with her latest record.

Ed Sheeran is reportedly working with Taylor Swift on her new studio album.

The 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You' star has already confessed to writing songs with the country artist – although is yet to explain in what form the collaboration would be.

However, according to The Sun, the BRIT Award winning star was approached by Taylor for her new record.

"Ed and Taylor have been in the studio in LA a lot over the past few weeks working on new material," a source told the publication. "She's into her British music and became a massive fan of Ed before asking to work with him recently."

They continued: "There is a mutual affection between the pair. It's still to be officially decided how the material will be released but just a single credit on her album will be worth big money."

The star is also working on his own new album and the follow up to the hugely successful debut '+' and has teased a possible collaboration with Snow Patrol - who he recently finished supporting on their US tour.
