Ed Sheeran's fans are getting excited as the star tweets the track list for his new album

Updated: 

Ed Sheeran has unveiled the tracklisting for his new album - and fans are going crazy.

The singer-songwriter tweeted a list of song titles from his upcoming new offering, ÷, which is due this year.

It comes after Ed - who had been fairly quiet since his year-long hiatus to "see the world" - burst back onto the scene by debuting new songs Shape Of You and Castle On The Hill last week.

Ed's tweet has fans on social media in a bit of a spin, and many have also ready posted hilarious responses to the news.

Ed is fighting fit as he returns after his break from touring, apparently having shed more than three stone.

The star said in an interview that he had packed on the pounds because he was no longer burning off the calories on stage at night.

The singer has been quoted as telling Total Access on Signal 1 radio: "I stopped touring and carried on my diet of pizza and beer. Suddenly I didn't fit in anything. I was like, 'All my clothes have shrunk'."

However, Ed began to exercise for 10 minutes every day and lost the extra weight.

"The key is to not miss a day, so you don't have to do an hour," he said.
