Release date for Ed Sheeran's new album

The singer's new album Subtract will be released on 5 May, with lead single Eyes Closed due out on 24 March.

The 14-track, acoustic-driven record was made in collaboration with The National's Aaron Dessner.

The lyrics were written when Sheeran was "spiralling through fear, depression and anxiety" after his wife was diagnosed with a tumour and his close friend Jamal Edwards died.

In a statement, Sheeran said: "I felt like I was drowning, head below the surface, looking up but not being able to break through for air...

"For the first time I'm not trying to craft an album people will like, I'm merely putting something out that's honest and true to where I am in my adult life."
