Ed Sheeran hasn't had a cell phone in over a year

"I bought an iPad and I just work off of email".

On a recent episode of Ellen, Sheeran surprised a young fan, 8-year-old Kai. Sheeran said he is so much less stressed and doesn't wake up to all of the messages about people wanting something. "It's just ... I wake up and have a cup of tea". After the release of his first two hits ("Shape of You" and "Castle on the Hill") it's safe to say that Ed Sheeran's new songs will definitely be worth the wait!

Overall, Ed Sheeran- with or without a phone, we still love you and can not wait for Divide!

When he took a break from the spotlight at the beginning of previous year, he made the resolution to ditch his cell - and he's sticking to it.

"I come from the countryside in England, it's such a attractive place", Sheeran explained.

I've had such an unbelievable ride over the last five years but I find myself seeing the world through a screen and not my eyes...

Sheeran spent his phone-free year actually off the grid, traveling around the world to see different countries for what they are rather than just the capital cities, he explained to DeGeneres.
