British singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran cut all the curse words from his new album on the advice of a taxi driver.

The A Team hitmaker made major changes to his second record, X, following an enlightening conversation with a cabbie, who told the star he would not let his young daughter listen to songs which featured obscenities.

Sheeran tells Britain's Daily Star newspaper, "My album is clean now. I cut the explicit lyrics out after a taxi driver convinced me it was the right thing to do.

"He said he wouldn't have let his daughter listen to it otherwise. So I did it."
