Ed Sheeran’s new album titled Subtract (-) , which is expected to be the last entry of The Mathematics era, will finally release on May 5. The British singer-songwriter first confirmed he was working on a new album back in november when he became the first artist to have four albums spend a year in the Top 10 on the UK Singles Chart. He posted a video on Instagram celebrating this record and saying: I’m going to celebrate by shooting a music video for my brand-new album, which will be out next year.
Fast forward to today, the British singer and songwriter took the web by storm after months of teasing when he posted a teaser on Twitter which confirmed the release date and tracklist for the latest entry of his discography. He also released a press statement giving more insight behind the creative process for the creation of the album:

Within the space of a month, my pregnant wife got told she had a tumour, with no route to treatment until after the birth. My best friend Jamal [Edwards], a brother to me, died suddenly and I found myself standing in court defending my integrity and career as a songwriter. I was spiralling through fear, depression and anxiety. This is last February’s diary entry and my way of making sense of it. This is ‘Subtract.
‘-‘ tracklist and album cover:
‘Life Goes On’
‘End of Youth’
‘The Hills of Aberfeldy’
The artist is currently touring the world with The +–=÷× Tour (also known as the Mathematics Tour) and the North American leg will begin on May 6. It’s being speculated that the tracklist will be changed and songs from the new album will be included in the show.
