Ed Sheeran announced his new album, “-,” (pronounced “Subtract”) will be released May 5th! Along with this announcement, however, the singer also gave us an emotional explanation as to how his personal life affected the making of this album. Ed explained that he experienced several traumatizing events in 2022: the sudden death of his best friend, his plagiarism lawsuit with “Shape of You,” and that his wife was diagnosed with a tumor while she was pregnant with their second child. You can read his full story and track list below.
Ed did not go into any further detail about the current health of his wife, Cherry Seaborn. After taking a break from social media at the end of the year, Ed did return in January to announce things were getting better.
