Ed Sheeran reveals wife Cherry was diagnosed with tumour during second pregnancy

The Shape of You singer announced on Wednesday that his fifth album - pronounced subtract - will be released on 5 May. In the announcement, he revealed that he had been creating hundreds of songs for the acoustic album for a decade, but replaced them all in just over a week after a series of devastating events around February 2022. In addition to Cherry's health diagnosis, Ed also faced the death of his close friend Jamal Edwards and a copyright infringement trial.
