Ed Sheeran has released three studio albums over the past six years, and each have been incredibly successful, but for his next release, he doesn’t care at all about the numbers.

In a recent interview with The Sunday Times via Just Jared, the “Castle on the Hill” singer opened about his next album saying that this one will be about the music, and not about the charts.

“I’m weak-minded at times, and feel very vulnerable and insecure. My plan is a lo-fi album that will be my lowest-selling, but most loved,” Sheeran told The Sunday Times using Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska album as his inspiration and guideline.

He also noted that it could be out next year, or it could be four years, but either way topping the charts won’t be his main objective.

Despite the fact that the British singer is insecure about his music and plans on having a low-selling record when he releases the next slew of songs, based on his dedicated fans and their love for his songs, we have a feeling it won’t be as low-selling as he plans it to be. Beloved however, we could definitely see becoming a reality.

In addition to working on a new record, which he’s already begun to write, Sheeran is heading out on tour next year, so he’s going to be pretty busy. His 2018 tour — promoting his ÷ record — will kick off in Australia on March 2, 2018, and will eventually come to the U.S. beginning August 18, 2018 when he plays in Pasadena, California.
