Sheeran’s Unconventional Recording Journey and Fan-Powered Album
Ed Sheeran, the famous singer, did something amazing! He recorded songs for his new album, “Autumn Variations,” by showing up at his fans’ houses and playing live music there.
He didn’t tell them in advance; it was a big surprise!
He even shared a video on Instagram where he played one of his older songs at a fan named Kari’s house. He had a lot of fun because Kari had cats, friendship bracelets, and fruity drinks.
When he played one of his new songs, he decided to explore Kari’s house and found a piano in her room.
Kari asked if he could play, and he said he could play a little. So, he played “Wake Me Up” for all his fans.
He also said that the live version of the album, recorded in fans’ living rooms, is coming soon, and the official album will be released on September 29th. He encouraged people to preorder it.
Ed Sheeran had teased these surprise visits earlier on TikTok, saying he would show up at fans’ houses to record something special. He even mentioned that the cats in some houses were cool!
His new album, “Autumn Variations,” will be out on September 29th. He got inspired to make it from an old orchestral work called “Enigma Variations” by composer Edward Elgar.
It has 14 different compositions, each representing someone important to the composer.
Ed Sheeran’s father and brother told him about this project, and he thought it was a great way to share some important things he learned from his friends.
He also mentioned that he worked with a producer named Aaron Dessner on this album, and they clicked right away.
They wrote and recorded a lot, and that’s how this album was born.
Ed Sheeran believes Aaron did a fantastic job capturing the feeling of autumn in the music, and he hopes everyone loves it.
This new album is coming after Ed Sheeran’s sixth studio album, “Subtract,” which was released in May.
“Autumn Variations” will be available one week after Ed finishes his Mathematics world tour in North America, and that’s also when autumn begins.
