Sheeran recently hit the headlines as a result of a High Court case in which he defended his work against allegations of plagiarism.
'Shape Of You' was the world's best-selling song of 2017, with more than three billion plays on Spotify alone.
The track earns Sheeran and his co-writers Steven McCutcheon and Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid about £5 million a year, despite almost 10% of the payments being frozen due to the ongoing copyright dispute, the court heard.
The judge ruled in Sheeran’s favour but the singer told BBC’s Newsnight the case had exerted “extraordinary stress” on him.
Sheeran currently video records all of his songwriting sessions to protect against future claims of copyright infringement or plagiarism.
