Exactly one year after having left Twitter - down to the exact minute - Ed Sheeran posted his first tweet of the year, leading people to believe that he's gearing up to make a major announcement.
Last year, Ed Sheeran declared that he would be "taking a break from my phone, emails and social media for a while" in the last message he posted before going offline.
In the same message, the English musician said, "To my friends and family, if you love me you will understand me buggering off for a bit, to my fans, the 3rd album is on its way and is the best thing I've made thus far. See you all next autumn."
Is this the long awaited return of Ed Sheeran?

Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran's friend and perpetual self-deprecator James Blunt had the perfect tweet to sum up his own return to music.
If you thought 2016 was bad - I'm releasing an album in 2017.
