Ed Sheeran Set to Release New Album in September

Ed Sheeran is to release a new album next month. The global superstar only released Subtract in May - the final record in his mathematics series - but he's already lining up his next studio effort for September after he wraps his Mathematics tour.

During his set at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on Saturday (Aug. 12), he teased after performing three new songs: “Autumn is coming, I will see you soon.”

And a source has since told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column: “Ed is going to be dropping a brand new record next month.

"It’s going to be massive for his fans, who’ve never had him drop two albums in a year before.

“It’s a massive change for him, as for years he has followed the traditional path of releasing a major album then going on tour.

“Now he’s going to drop the album to give fans something to look forward to after he wraps up the Mathematics tour next month.

“He has started testing out the material on fans at recent concerts and the reaction has been incredible.”

Sheeran, 32, recently admitted that he has been "questioning" a lot of things as he prepares to switch things up and admitted he wants to try country music at some point.

Speaking on NBC's 'Today' show, the “Shape of You” hitmaker said: “I’ve known for the past 13 years what Mathematics would be, and now it’s, like, what to do next. There’s lots of questions going around in my head. I lived in Nashville for a couple of years, and I kind of fell in love with country music there. That’s something I would love to do at some point.”

Sheeran previously explained that he “loves the culture” that surrounds country music after spending time in Nashville and discovering the “community” of songwriters there but explained that he had “never really listened” to the genre until he supported Taylor Swift on her Red tour in 2013.” 

He explained: “I’d never really listened to country music as a kid growing up. It was only being on Taylor’s Red tour and living in Nashville and her basically introducing me to that side of it.”
