According to a new interview with British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, his new album will focus on "relationship troubles." This of course brings to mind his friendship with Taylor Swift, who is known for her songs about the same subject. Plus his friendship with Swift's ex-boyfriend, Harry Styles, adds to the assumption that the singer might have received some inspiration from the former couple.
"This album has been a lot of relationship troubles I guess, " Sheeran said. "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. This record there has been more drama that has happened in my personal life, so I've written a lot about that."
Some may be drawing the comparison between Sheeran's new songwriting subject to that of his "Red" tour mate Taylor Swift, but it also should be mentioned that Ed recently dated Ellie Goulding. The relationship did not last that long, but perhaps it had a bigger effect on Ed considering his new subject matter.

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