Ed Sheeran is continuing to tease his fans with song lyrics ahead of his new music release on Friday.

The Photograph singer confirmed his comeback last week after a year-long hiatus from touring and social media.

Sheeran (25) has since been sending his fans into a frenzy by teasing song lyrics and the title of the album.

The first short video posted to his social media accounts reads: "When I was six years old I broke my leg," while the second is: "The club isn't the best place to find a lover."

It appears that he will carry on the theme of mathematical symbols as album titles, with an animation showing a minus sign and colon forming the divide symbol.

The super star recently returned to social media, with a light blue picture posted on his Instagram and Twitter profiles, prompting speculation that new music was on the way.

He also wrote this year's X Factor winner's single, When Christmas Comes Around, which debuted at number three in the charts.

Sheeran gave his first official return performance in a charity gig at the Natural History Museum at the end of November, days after it was reported that Princess Beatrice had accidentally cut him on the face when a party prank went wrong as she was pretending to "knight" singer James Blunt with a ceremonial sword .

Showing off a scar on his cheek, Sheeran told the audience: ''It's nice to be back. I've had a whole year off. I went to Japan for about a month and hung out with Japanese people. Got my face cut open, anyone read about that?''
