On September 29th 2023, Ed Sheeran released his newest album, 'Autumn Variations'. The first album in a decade not to have a mathematical name, Autumn Variations was intended to feel "like a warm hug", and was created purely for fans, and not for financial gain. The tracks on the album will not be released as singles, and there will be no official videos; although Ed has announced that he will be creating live versions of the album's tracks at fan's houses.
Autumn Variations has mixed reviews from critics, but in the fan's eyes, Ed can do no wrong. As one of the biggest UK male artists ever, we have compiled a list of Ed's bestsellers.
