English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran recently shared on Instagram that his wife Cherry was diagnosed with a tumour during her second pregnancy. He acknowledged that this news sent him “spiralling through fear, depression, and anxiety” because there was no way to treat the condition until after the baby was born. The information was released before to the debut of his next album Subtract.
“I had been working on Minus for a decade, attempting to create the ideal acoustic album, composing and recording hundreds of songs with a strong idea of what I felt it should be.

I was experiencing fear, depression, and anxiety. I felt like I was drowning, head below the surface, looking up but unable to break through for air.”Jupiter, their second child, was born in May 2022.

“This album is solely about that. It’s allowing access to my soul. For the first time, I’m not attempting to create an album that people will enjoy; instead, I’m simply releasing something that is honest and true to where I am in my adult life. This is my interpretation of last February’s diary entry. “This is Subtraction,”Join
