A year to the day after announcing his break from social media, the "Thinking Out Loud" singer made a curious return to Instagram, posting a photo without comment, that can literally only be described as blue.
Fans are speculating that the blue photo -- which is also set as his profile picture -- may have something to do with new music (i.e. an album title), but to be honest, no one's quite azure (like the color. We're sorry).
Though timely, Sheeran's return is slightly delayed from what he promised in a departure post last December, writing, "See you all next autumn."
Meanwhile, Sheeran made his return to the stage just a couple of weeks ago, where the 25-year-old artist played a few songs at a gala dinner for East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) at the Natural History Museum in London.
"This is the first time I've done a show in a year, so please bear with me," he told the audience. "It's nice to be back."
Glad to have you back, Ed! What's the blue thing mean??
