Pop superstar Ed Sheeran’s fifth record is slated for release on October 29th. The singer will not be able to attend some of the previously planned appointments in person due to the corona.
London – A few days before his new album is released, British pop star Ed Sheeran claims to have tested positive for the corona virus. The 30-year-old singer shared on Instagram that he was in quarantine and was following government guidelines.
Therefore, he cannot attend any appointments personally for the time being, but will do some planned interviews and appearances from home. “Everyone take care of yourselves,” Sheeran wrote.
It was initially unclear whether the singer was vaccinated against Covid-19. In a show by the presenter James Corden, Sheeran had advertised in the summer with a modified version of his hit “Shape of You” to be vaccinated.
Sheeran is back with a new album this fall. His fifth record is due to appear on October 29th – it bears the title “=” (“Equals”, in German: equal). The resulting single “Bad Habits” was already a great success and Germany’s summer hit.
For 2022, the four-time Grammy award winner is planning a concert tour that will also bring him to Germany. Sheeran is one of the most successful musicians in the world. dpa
