Limited Yellow colored vinyl LP pressing. 2023 release. An album that revisits Ed Sheeran's singer/songwriter roots, and one that was written against a backdrop of personal grief and hope, "-" presents one of the biggest stars on the planet at his most vulnerable and honest. Growing up with the likes of Damian Rice, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan playing on repeat in his parents' house - artists that his dad, John, introduced him to - "-" was always on Ed's horizon. Yet as the songs and writing process took on a whole new meaning and direction after a series of hard-hitting events impacted Ed's world in 2022, one thing that remained untouched was his strong desire to make a record anchored in his love of singer/songwriter compositions. And now, as he gears-up for the release of his most soul-baring work to date, "-" serves as a timely reminder for why Sheeran remains one of the most gifted lyricists of his generation; an artist who breaks down his own experiences for fans to seek comfort and belonging. "-" is the result of Sheeran pushing the boundaries of his songcraft, as he delivers the most profound songwriting of his career. Teaming-up with Aaron Dessner (The National) on writing and production after the pair joined forces following an introduction from mutual friend Taylor Swift, Ed and Aaron began crafting the album in February last year. Writing over 30 songs during their month-long studio stint, the album's tracks are seamlessly tied together by exquisite production from paired back, folk-leaning textures to bolder, full-band/orchestral arrangements. 1 Boat 2 Salt Water 3 Eyes Closed 4 Life Goes on 5 Dusty 6 End of Youth 7 Colourblind 8 Curtains 9 Borderline 10 Spark 11 Vega 12 Sycamore 13 No Strings 14 The Hills of Aberfeldy
