Ed Sheeran has surprised his longing fans with his social media return after a yearlong hiatus.

The “Thinking Out Loud” hitmaker rebounded in his intensely followed social media accounts on Tuesday, cryptically posting the sky-blue color sans captions on FacebookInstagram and Twitter.



Sheeran, 25, stayed out of the spotlight this year to focus on recording for his third album, which is to be released “soon.” Amy Wadge, the songwriter who teamed up with Sheeran for his forthcoming album, told BBC that Sheeran spent his 2016 “preparing for his next album.”

“His album is done,” Wadge said.

His first and, so far, only 2016 appearance was when he performed at a fundraising event in the UK last week. Despite his long absence, Sheeran penned “X-Factor UK” winner Matt Terry’s solo “When Christmas Comes Around.”
