Ed Sheeran has announced that his new album ‘Autumn Variations’ is due out on 29 September 2023.

The full-length is produced by The National’s Aaron Dessner and will be released on Sheeran’s own Gingerbread Man Records.

Ed Sheeran says:

“Last autumn, I found that my friends and I were going through so many life changes. After the heat of the summer, everything either calmed, settled, fell apart, came to a head or imploded.

“When I went through a difficult time at the start of last year, writing songs helped me understand my feelings and come to terms with what was going on, and when I learned about my friend’s different situations, I wrote songs, some from their perspectives, some from mine, to capture how they and I viewed the world at that time. There were highs of falling in love and new friendships among lows of heartbreak, depression, loneliness and confusion.”

“My dad and brother told me about a composer called Elgar, who composed ‘Enigma Variations’, where each of the 14 compositions were about a different one of his friends. This is what inspired me to make this album. When I recorded Subtract with Aaron Dessner, we clicked immediately. We wrote and recorded non-stop and this album was born out of that partnership. I feel he has captured the feeling of autumn so wonderfully in his sonics and I hope everyone loves it as much as I do.”

‘Autumn Variations’ is the follow-up to ‘-’ (Subtract), which dropped back in May this year. The record was the last in the pop superstar’s decade-spanning mathematical album era and featured hit single ‘Eyes Closed’.

His previous chart-topping studio albums include 2011s ‘+’ (Plus), 2014s ‘x’, 2017s ‘÷’, 2019s ‘No. 6 Collaborations Project’ and 2021s ‘=’.
