Ed Sheeran is about to treat his fans to a unique fall experience with his upcoming album Autumn Variations. Following the release of his sixth studio album Subtract just four months ago, Sheeran is showing no signs of slowing down.
Ed Sheeran Announces Second Album of 2023
Set to be launched on September 29 under Sheeran’s own Gingerbread Man Records, Autumn Variations is a collaborative effort between Sheeran and Aaron Dessner, the renowned guitarist of The National. This dynamic partnership has already proven its magic with Subtract earlier this year.
Sheeran’s inspiration for this new album stems from the changing seasons and the profound shifts that life often brings during the autumn months. Drawing from personal experiences and those of his friends, Sheeran has crafted a collection of songs that capture the highs and lows of life’s transitions.
In his statement, Sheeran reveals that the idea for Autumn Variations was sparked by English composer Elgar’s “Enigma Variations,” where each composition was a musical tribute to a different friend. Sheeran’s album follows a similar theme, with each track delving into a unique facet of life’s ever-changing panorama.
Aptly timed to coincide with the autumn season, Autumn Variations is a testament to Sheeran and Dessner’s creative synergy. Dessner’s ability to capture the essence of autumn through his music aligns seamlessly with Sheeran’s vision for the album. The result is a collection of songs that not only narrate personal stories but also evoke the sensations of fall.
