Ed Sheeran’s in the hay team with Taylor Swift

He has been writing with top-selling country singer Taylor Swift on tracks for her next album — and the royalties could net him millions.

A source says: “Ed and Taylor have been in the studio in LA a lot over the past few weeks working on new material.

“She’s into her British music and became a massive fan of Ed before asking to work with him recently.

“There is a mutual affection between the pair.

“It’s still to be officially decided how the material will be released but just a single credit on her album will be worth big money.

“Taylor’s country sound is massive around the world.”

Taylor has sold 22million albums and more than 50million downloads worldwide — which puts her in the same league as acts like Coldplay and Jay-Z.

A co-write credit on an album track would earn Ed around £200,000.

Huge sales … country music star Taylor Swift

But if one of the songs they’ve worked on is picked to be a single, then the sky’s the limit.

It’s good news for the ginger singer, who already has a credit on One Direction’s album and is wanted by the boyband for their second.

Working with Taylor will give a decent boost to Suffolk lad Ed’s profile across the pond too.

He’s been hanging around in Los Angeles since finishing his US tour, having meetings with other artists and high-powered record label execs.

And having Elton John heading his management firm won’t hurt Ed’s quest to crack the States either.

All pale Ed has to remember is to slap on the sun cream.
