Ed Sheeran puts an end to mathematical album titles.
The pop star has released five albums so far and has found inspiration in mathematics. Her albums are titled ‘+’, ‘x’, ‘÷’, ‘No. 6 Collaboration Project’ and ‘=’. She also plans to release the album ‘–’, pronounced ‘Subtract’, this year. For the time being, though, Ed seems to have had enough math symbols. Speaking to Australia’s ‘Carrie Tommy’ podcast, the 31-year-old explained: “That’s it. There are only five. The other [Album] will appear before going to New Zealand [und Australien] come do the tour.”
Ed’s ‘Mathematics’ tour in Oceania kicks off in early February 2023, while he is on tour in Europe this spring. The British singer is expected to release ‘Subtract’ this year, although an exact release date has not been announced.
In the interview, the ‘Shivers’ hitmaker was also asked what bothers him most about his job as a musician. He said, “When you make a living doing what you love, there’s always something you don’t particularly like. But if the 98% are wonderful, it doesn’t matter.” That’s why he can’t name a specific thing that bothers him.
