The tour will culminate with a concert at Sofi Stadium in Los Angeles on September 23. Sheeran’s sixth studio album, – (Subtract), was promoted throughout the Mathematics Tour. Autumn Variations is Sheeran’s second album to be released this year, following – (Subtract) on May 5. Sheeran first announced the release of his seventh studio album in a lengthy Instagram post on August 24. “Last autumn, I discovered that my friends and I were going through a lot of life transitions.
” “Everything either calmed, settled, fell apart, came to a head, or imploded after the summer heat,” Sheeran wrote in the caption of his album announcement photo. “When I was going through a difficult time at the beginning of last year, writing songs helped me understand my feelings and come to terms with what was going on, and when I found out about my friends’ various situations, I wrote songs, some from their perspectives, some from mine, to capture how they and I viewed the world at the time.” There were highs like falling in love and making new friends, but there were also lows like heartbreak, depression, loneliness, and confusion.” “My father and brother told me about a composer named Elgar who wrote ‘Enigma Variations,’ in which each of the 14 compositions was about one of his friends.” “This is what inspired me to make this album,” Sheeran wrote of the record’s creation. “When I recorded Subtract with Aaron Dessner, we hit it off right away. We wrote and recorded nonstop, and this album is the result of that collaboration. I believe he has captured the essence of fall in his sonics, and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do.”
