Superstar Ed Sheeran will release his upcoming album on October 29th. He’s been working on it for more than four years.

Ed Sheeran (30) will release his fourth studio album “=” or “Equals” on October 29th. That is what the British singer did on August 19th, among other things announced on Instagram. The record can be pre-ordered from today.

“I started writing and recording this album in June 2017,” Sheeran explains in his post. It was a “long, long process”. And during this process he experienced a lot – including “love, loss, new life, grief and everything in between”. He was never more proud of one of his works.

New song with Kylie Minogue and Jimmy Barnes

Sheeran also chooses similar words in a statement in a press release. “Equals” is “an extremely personal album that means a lot to me. My life has changed profoundly in recent years: I got married, became a father, and suffered loss. I deal with all of these issues in the course of the album. Me consider it my coming-of-age album and can’t wait to share this next chapter with you guys. “

There are 14 songs on the record, including the new release “Visiting Hours”. Sheeran wrote the song shortly after the death of his friend and mentor Michael Gudinski (1952-2021), who passed away in early March. The Briton played the song for the first time as part of a tribute concert for Gudinski. In addition to Sheeran, the studio version also features Kylie Minogue (53) and Jimmy Barnes (65) as background singers.
