Ed Sheeran has announced his fifth studio album and features 14 songs.
The new album will be called = (pronounced equals) and is planned to be released on 29 October.
The album cover includes an image of a chrysalis, with butterflies.
Sheeran said via his Instagram account that the album represents “new life – I’ve been through, over the last four years, different experiences in life, including getting married, having a kid, losing a friend”.
The album features a new song called Visiting Hours, which has also been released alongside the announcement.
After releasing his third album in 2017’s called ÷, Sheeran then went on a world tour that lasted two and a half years. He became the highest-grossing and most-attended tour of all time, generating $1,1229m NZD (£567m) from 260 concerts and 8.5m tickets sold.
However, his biggest album success remains 2014’s x, which is the 49th biggest-selling album ever in the UK.
