Ed Sheeran wants to record his next album with a band.
The 'Thinking Out Loud' hitmaker has achieved worldwide success as a genuine solo artist, recording and performing with just an acoustic guitar and a range of effects.
Ed - who has sold over a million copies of his second album 'x' in the UK -wants to experiment with his sound on his third LP and is ready to hire backing musicians to give his songs a new sound.
The 23-year-old musician - who is playing three massive sell-out concerts at Wembley Stadium in London next July - said: ''In my head I've always seen the third record as where I get a band. The first gig we did on this tour was the Barfly in London, so I've gone from the Barfly to Wembley with a loop pedal. After that there's not much you can do with a loop pedal.''
Ed insists he won't just be putting together a standard rock group set-up - guitar, bass and drums - but plans on having several backing musicians just like his idol Justin Timberlake.
He told The Sun newspaper: ''I watched Justin at the V Festival this year. You either don't have a band or you have a band like that, you go for it or you don't.''
The singer surprised fans this month when he used a small backing group and back-up singers when he performed on 'The X Factor' final.
