New Music Friday: Ed Sheeran Releases Heartfelt New Album “Autumn Variations”

Happy New Music Friday!! The weekend is finally here. Here are our favorite releases this week.

Ed Sheeran has released his second album of the year, Autumn Variationscontaining 14 songs about the people in his life. Produced by Aaron Dessner, Sheeran notes that the album is inspired by some of his favorite records – including Norah JonesCome Away With Me and Jack Johnson’s In Between Dreams – as he wanted a chill, easy-going record of his own; one that he doesn’t care whether or not goes to No. 1.

He told CBS Mornings, “You just have to be like, ‘I don’t care what people think. Cause people are gonna see it and they’re gonna see it being a lower figure than my other records and be like, ‘Oh, he’s on the way out.’ You just can’t go like this for your entire career, You have to have moments of, like, just doing things because you want to do them.”
