Ed Sheeran is going back on tour in the U.K. and Ireland.

The Grammy-nominated musician announced on Monday via Twitter that he'll headline 12 European shows for the first time since 2012, beginning Oct. 6. 

He then redirected fans to his manager, Stuart Camp, who tweeted that more tour dates in other countries will soon be announced. Camp also added that Sheeran would release the follow-up to his 2011 debut album by the time the tour kicks off in Dublin. “The new album will be out by time of the tour. News on that soon," he tweeted.
