Disney+ has landed a four-part documentary series chronicling the life and career of global star Ed Sheeran. Serving as a prelude to his sixth studio album, Ed Sheeran: The Sum of It All will take a never before seen look at the singer’s private life and explore how some of his biggest hits were born.
“I’ve always been very guarded in my personal and private life; the only documentary I’ve ever made has been one that focused on my songwriting,” Sheeran said, according to Deadline.
“Disney approached me to make a four-part documentary, and it felt like the right time to open the door and let people in. I hope people enjoy it.”
The first single from his upcoming album, Subtract, will be released on March 24, 2023. Six weeks later, the album, along with the documentary, will roll out on Disney+.
“In this docuseries, we’re going to reveal a side of Ed Sheeran that fans have never seen before,” Disney Branded Television President Ayo Davis said.
“Together with Fulwell 73, we’ve created something truly authentic and personal that will not only entertain audiences but also inspire them to dream big and pursue their passions.”
Check out the trailer below before the four-part series debuts on Disney+ on May 3, 2023.
