The singer, who grew up in Framlingham, tweeted: “Hello 2017...”, to introduce a nine second video to his 16.7million followers.

In just a matter of minutes the Tweet had been shared tens of thousands of times among his legions of global fans.

The multi-award winning star had already provoked attention just a few weeks ago when he changed his Twitter profile picture to a plain blue image, exactly a year after he announced he was taking a break from social media. It led to speculation from fans that he was about to release his third album.
