Critics have welcomed Ed Sheeran’s subdued new album ‘Subtract’ which reflects on a challenging year.

The album was released on Friday, hours after Sheeran won a plagiarism case in the US.

Subtract, which strikes a darker and more introspective tone, was described by the Guardian as “a noticeably different prospect to previous albums”.

Last year, Ed Sheeran’s friend Jamal Edward died and his wife was diagnosed with cancer while pregnant.

BBC reports that the release of – (Subtract) marks the conclusion of Sheeran’s series of albums named after mathematical symbols, following + (Plus), x (Multiply), ÷ (Divide) and = (Equals).
