English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has collaborated with Rudimental for a new song "Lay It All On Me" for his last project until he returns with his third album.

Sheeran, 24, revealed on Twitter that the single will mark his "final thing" for a while, joking that it's "bad news" for his fans and "great news" for those who don't like him.

The collaboration though is not exclusive between Ed Sheeran and Rudimental. Earlier also, the "Thinking Out Loud" singer teamed up with the group to work on "Bloodstream" from his second studio album, "x".

Rudimental played "Lay It All On Me" with Sheeran while touring with the Briton in the US, and later collaborated to finish the song altogether in London.

Amir Amor, member of Rudimental, said that the song is about brotherhood and "sticking together", according to BBC Radio.

The song will feature Rudimental's forthcoming sophomore album "We the Generation" that is scheduled to release on 2 October.

The news of Sheeran's hiatus from music has, however, left his fans--also termed as "Sheerios"--heartbroken and devastated.

Sheeran is currently on a US tour, and he absolutely seems to be buzzing about playing at the Gillette Stadium, which hosted One Direction's "On The Road" tour earlier this month. The pop star will also tour New Zealand towards the end of this year with the concerts kicking off from 28 November.

Ever since he rose to fame in 2011 with his debut studio album "+", Ed Sheeran has been making every girl bawl her eyes out and die from the massive feels that his music gives. We hope he makes the most of the break and comes back with an even better third album.
