Ed Sheeran Announces New Album ‘=’ and Shares Tracklist

Ed Sheeran has announced his fifth album, ‘=’, and shared the album track ‘Visiting Hours’.

The singer-songwriter, whose last solo album was 2017’s ‘÷‘ (not counting his collaborative work ‘No.6 Collaborations Project‘ in 2019) confirmed that it will be released on October 29 via Asylum/Atlantic.

Sheeran premiered ‘Visiting Hours’ earlier today during a performance on Instagram, where he played an acoustic guitar from an undisclosed location where he is currently on a family holiday. He stated that the song, which is out now, is not the album’s new single but is a cut from the forthcoming record.

In an official statement, he added: “= (Equals) is a really personal record and one that means a lot to me. My life changed greatly over the past few years – I got married, became a father, experienced loss, and I reflect on these topics over the course of the album. I see it as my coming-of-age record, and I can’t wait to share this next chapter with you.”

Additionally, Sheeran revealed that he has painted part of the new album’s cover art, which was later finished by a friend.
