Ed Sheeran has reportedly hinted at marital problems with his wife Cherry Seaborn in the lyrics to his new album.
The singer’s new album Autumn Variations, released on Friday, seems to suggest that their relationship was in crisis at some point, with one song even suggesting that his wife “may have ended their relationship.”
Ed, who recently hit the streets of New York to record his seventh album, released a song called Punchline about an imploding romance.
The text, seen by The Sun, read: “I can’t help being destructive at the moment.” It’s been weeks since I saw your draft.
“There is such a loud silence in my room. This is what losing hope might sound like.”
On ice: Ed Sheeran, 32, has reportedly hinted at marital problems with his wife Cherry Seaborn, 31, in the lyrics to his new album
Problems in paradise? The singer’s new album, released on Friday, seems to suggest that his wife “may have ended the relationship.”
During the emotional chorus, it continued: “I can’t help it, but I love you so much.” I can’t bear this letting go. I still feel like we could work it out or something.
“I’m just flesh and bones. ‘Why is your heart so ice cold?’
Ed, 32, and Cherry, 31, who have been together since 2015, tied the knot in 2019.
The couple are parents to daughters Jupiter, 15 months, and Lyra, two.
In another track, Ed described their “bumpy road” and emphasized in the song that this is “not the end of our lives.”
He sings, “This is not the end of our lives, this is just a bumpy journey. ‘I know everything will be okay.’
In the song “The Day I Was Born” he sings: “I broke up with my lover a few months ago. If they were here, I probably wouldn’t be alone.”
However, it is unclear which songs are based on Ed’s personal experiences, as he has previously spoken about the album being about both his life and the lives of his friends.
Web has contacted Ed’s representatives for comment.

He’s back: The singer’s seventh album and the first from his own record label Gingerbread Man Records will be released on September 29th
His words: The album will focus on a range of emotions including heartbreak, depression, loneliness and confusion
This is Ed’s first album on his own record label, Gingerbread Man, and before it hit the charts, he decided to gain a few extra fans by holding up a cardboard sign that said “Fall is here” while filming in the Big Apple .
Ed, who has had 14 number one hits in the UK, previously spoke about his album.
The musician explained in the fall of 2022 that for all of his friends, everything seemed either calm and calm or falling apart and imploding: “When I was going through a difficult time at the beginning of last year, writing songs helped me understand my feelings and.” coming to terms with what was going on.
“As I learned about my friends’ different situations, I wrote songs, some from their perspective, some from mine, to capture how they and I saw the world at the time.”
The album will focus on a range of emotions including heartbreak, depression, loneliness and confusion.
It is inspired by the Enigma Variations by Elgar, who created 14 compositions based on 14 friends, so Ed decided to do the same together with Aaron Dessner, who worked closely with Ed at Subtract.
“We have been writing and recording non-stop and this album was born out of that partnership.”
“I think he captured the feeling of autumn so beautifully in his sounds and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do.”
