New song is not about Taylor Swift: Ed Sheeran

London: Singer Ed Shreeran has assured fans that his new song, `Don`t`, is not about his former tourmate Taylor Swift, insisting the pair`s friendship has never turned romantic.

Shreeran, 23, who blasts a cheating ex-lover in the track, makes it clear that the "ex" is not Swift, reportedly. "It`s 100 per cent not about Taylor... I`ve never dated Taylor. I`ve dated a few singers, though," he said.

The `A Team` hitmaker had earlier said that the song was based on a true story, sparking speculation among fans that the girl in question is his fellow pop star Ellie Goulding or Swift.
