Suffolk singer Ed Sheeran said he is considering taking a year off after he was named songwriter of the year at the Ivor Novello Awards.
The ceremony at Grosvenor House on London’s Park Lane yesterday marked the 60th anniversary of the songwriting and composing honours and saw a glittering list of stars from the music world rewarded for their efforts.
Sheeran, 24, who grew up in Framlingham, has already picked up a string of awards over the last year, including two Brits, as well as setting several records including becoming the most streamed British artist on Spotify.
But he revealed that after his whirlwind year of success he is planning to take some time off.
He said: “I’d like to live for a bit. I feel like I live in a bubble at the moment where everything normal happens outside and everything Hollywood happens inside.
“And I’d like to get on the outside for at least a year I think.”
