Before you go into a deep depression like we almost did, don't worry. He's only taking a break, not a permanent departure from music.
"I haven't had any time off since before I signed my record deal and I want some! I'll do what I enjoy and it won't feel like work," he recently told The Sun.
That means there won't be a Christmas song from him too, like we all thought there would be. "[The Christmas song] won't be out this Christmas. I have "Thinking Out Loud" as a single going into Christmas," Ed added.
"If I saw an artist have a string of hits, an album that did well, a hit going into Christmas and then they did a Christmas single I'd think, 'Ooh, that's overkill'."
"If my song came out next year or the year after, when I haven't released anything for a while, it will be bigger," the singer included.
Eh, we can't say we think that's a bad idea. Songs and artists do get out-played these days.
Lets just hope he doesn't stay away for too long. We seriously don't know how we can manage life without his tunes...really.
Do you think Ed's music break is a good idea? Chime in.
