Ed Sheeran has disclosed that things haven’t been smooth in his life but he has kept it all to himself.
According to the singer who confessed to battling mental health, t his wife, Cherry Seaborn, was also diagnosed with a tumour while she was pregnant with their second child.
Whilst announcing his new album, the British singer-songwriter in a diary entry photographed by Annie Liebowitz said a series of events at the beginning of last year changed his life, mental health and the way he views music and art.
“Within the space of a month, my pregnant wife got told she had a tumour, with no route for treatment until after the birth. My best friend Jamal, a brother to me, died suddenly, and I found myself in court defending my integrity and career as a songwriter,” he wrote.
Giving details about his upcoming album titled – (Subtract), Ed Sheeran stated that his wife Cherry Seaborn experienced a medical scare during her pregnancy. The singer is expected to soon release his fifth studio album.
According to a press release, the project will drop on May 5, at a time of monumental change in the musician’s life, including the birth of his second daughter with wife Cherry Seaborn last May.
“I had been working on Subtract for a decade, trying to sculpt the perfect acoustic album, writing and recording hundreds of songs with a clear vision of what I thought it should be,” Sheeran wrote in a statement.
Among those events includes his legal victory over a copyright infringement case regarding his single 2017 hit “Shape of You,” mourning the loss of friend Jamal Edwards who died last February at age 31—and a medical scare in his family.
