Ed Sheeran releases his fourth studio album, his first as a father

British singer Ed Sheeran released his fourth solo studio album on Friday, which bears the title of "Equals" (The same), the first as a father and a married man.

This is a highly anticipated release, which comes after Sheeran married partner Cherry Seaborn in 2019 and was the father of a baby girl, Lyra, during lockdown from the pandemic.

The singer revealed that he himself is the author of "part" of the cover, where, in addition to the symbol "=" on a red background, butterflies are seen symbolizing a new life.

Sheeran said he painted the cover during confinement simply by splashing paint on a canvas, inspired by the changes in his life in recent years.

The artist admitted that "Equals" is the result of a process "careful" and materialized in 14 songs, including "Bad Habits" and "Shivers", which spent fifteen weeks in the lists of the best sellers in the country.

"There are so many things that have happened in my life and I feel, not in an evangelical way, but I feel very reborn in my 30s, my vision of the world is different", he has told the media.

He also admitted that, after some difficulties a few years ago, now "there is so much joy in my life and this album reflects part of that".

"I have spent much of my 20 years wondering: Who am I? Because I am here? Why am I doing this? If I am a singer, what do I add to the world? So it’s a lot to wonder, and I turned 30 and I feel like some of these questions have started to get answers."admitted the musician.

Sheeran has also received a message from his friend and mentor Elton John, congratulating him on the release of his new album and wishing him good luck.

The singer rose to fame in 2011 with the release of the single "The A Team".

According to music commentators, the new album is a love letter to his wife and reflects a balance between Sheeran’s strong business instincts and introspective and emotional moments.

Most of the songs are directed at his wife, Cherry Seaborn, whom he met at school.
