Ed Sheeran recently took to social media to reveal that he recorded a live version of his upcoming album Autumn Variations in fans’ homes.
Sheeran confirmed that each song from the new record was performed and recorded “in a different fan’s living room,” but all of them came as a “total surprise.”
The footage, shared by the singer-songwriter on Instagram shows him performing one of his older tracks in a fan’s home. Sheeran is seen sitting by a piano and rendering “Wake Me Up,” a song from his 2011 album +.
“We got to @kariconaway’s house at the end of the day, and I instantly knew it was gonna be a fun one,” Sheeran captioned his post. “They had cats, friendship bracelets and some fruit drinks to start, but once I’d played the Autumn song I said take me on a tour, and when I went into her room I saw a piano.
“She asked if I could play and I said ‘not really but I kinda play on wake me up’,” he added. “So here I am playing ‘Wake Me Up,’ for all the Plus fans out there.”
The singer also confirmed that “The Fan Living Room live ‘Autumn Variation’s album [is] coming soon.”
Sheeran teased these surprise visits to fans’ homes earlier this month onTikTok. “Surprise pop-ups in fans’ houses to record something special, coming soon,” he said at the time. “Ps your cats were cool.”
The new album, which is produced by Aaron Dessner of The National, is reportedly inspired by a 19th Century orchestral work from composer Edward Elgar, titled Enigma Variations.
The forthcoming album, which is due out on September 29th, will mark Sheeran’s second release of 2023.
