Earlier this fall, Ed engaged fans from every corner of the globe to create music videos of their own for each song on “Autumn Variations.” After receiving over 4,000 entries courtesy of creators in over 75 countries. Ed personally handpicked a cohort of 14 winners, representing 14 different countries across five continents, namely Ireland, United Kingdom, Australia, Italy, The Netherlands, United States, Brazil, Germany, Japan, France, New Zealand, Taiwan, Mexico, and India. This endeavor continues the execution of Ed’s initial vision for “Autumn Variations” as an album for the fans and by the fans as he spotlights their artistry.  The remaining 13 videos will roll out over the coming weeks (full list of videos and directors below).

About the videos, Ed commented, “I made Autumn Variations for the fans and I really wanted to bring them into the fold on this album. I was keen to see how they interpreted the music, so I decided to ask my fans from across the world to make videos for each album track. There were so many wonderful submissions and I’m very happy to announce that I’ll be launching all 14 fan-made videos over the coming weeks, kicking off with That’s On Me. I want to give special thanks to each and every fan who made these videos so special. I love them and hope you will too x”

The US video director Michael Lamhang added, “Angie and I have been together nearly 10 years – and Ed’s music has been there every step of the way. Through love, through loss, and everything in between, his music has been the soundtrack for our lives together. When Ed asked his fans to make music videos for Autumn Variations, we knew that sharing our own story was just one way that we could share, in however small a way, just how much his music has meant to us.

American Town was the perfect song for us to depict our adventure together – to forget all expectation from the world around us and focus on what matters most. Ed’s lyrics say it all “Lost in love and we don’t wanna be found… It’s just you and me”. Together with True Story Films (@truestoryfilms), we were able to make our vision a reality and had so much fun in the process!”

Released in September, “Autumn Variations” topped Billboard’s Top Albums Sales chart, following the #1 debut of “-“ (subtract) on the same chart earlier this year.  Produced by Aaron Dessner, “Autumn Variations” marks Sheeran’s seventh studio album and first full length to be released on his own Gingerbread Man Records.  Within days, he also dropped “Autumn Variations (Fan Living Room Sessions),” an extended version of his just-released “Autumn Variations” featuring live performances of each track captured at surprised fans’ homes during the record-setting, North American leg of his Mathematics Tour – each song title on the new collection pays homage to the fan by name (see full track listing below).  “Autumn Variations” and “Autumn Variations (Fan Living Room Sessions)” are both available everywhere now.  STREAM/DOWNLOAD HERE
