The Ipswich mega star had been working on his new album for over ten years, Unfortunately, Ed went through several personal issues at the start of 2022 that resulted in him rewriting and scrapping his already written material in just 3 weeks. 

“The themes of Subtract (now), it’s about learning to live without things” Ed says to Spotify. “I always saw subtract as a genre, you strip everything away and it’s acoustic guitar, but I think it’s so much more than that.” 

The newest album ‘Subtract’ will be released on May 5th 2023 through Asylum Records. 

Our second announcement is the first single ‘Eyes Closed’ to be released 24th March 2023.
