Ed Sheeran To Release New Album May 5th

Fans of Ed Sheeran were given a reason to rejoice on March 1st, as the musician confirmed almost every detail of his highly anticipated new album project. In a surprise announcement on social media, the singer-songwriter revealed that the album, titled “Substract”, will be the final installment in his musical pentalogy.

In an interview with The Times, Sheeran revealed that “Substract” will explore themes of loss and regret, with a focus on stripped-down arrangements and raw, emotional performances. “I wanted to challenge myself as a songwriter and push myself out of my comfort zone,” he said. “This album is about confronting your demons and coming out the other side.”

Fans can expect to hear Sheeran’s trademark acoustic guitar and heartfelt lyrics, but he has promised that the sound of “Substract” will be different from his previous albums. “I’ve been experimenting with new instruments and sounds, and I think people are going to be surprised by some of the things they hear on this record,” he said.

The album will feature collaborations with a range of artists, including fellow Brits Adele and Stormzy, as well as American singer-songwriter Halsey. Sheeran also confirmed that he produced the album himself, with additional production from his longtime collaborator, Benny Blanco.
