Ahead of Ed Sheeran’s upcoming album — (Subtract), the singer will provide an inside look into his life, career, and new LP with the Disney+ docuseries Ed Sheeran: The Sum of It All.

Premiering May 3 on the streaming service, the four-part docuseries will chart Sheeran’s rise from a child with a stutter to stadium-filling superstar, complete with never-before-seen footage from his personal archives, new interviews with Sheeran and his family, intimate performances, and more.

“Ginger hair, really short, he stutters. That guy doesn’t become a pop star. It’s so unlikely,” Sheeran says in the trailer of his rise to stardom. “You just have to work harder because there’s always someone who wants it more than you.”

“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 in a statement. “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 docuseries premieres two days before Subtract arrives on May 5. On March 25, Sheeran will share the LP’s latest single, “Eyes Closed,” a snippet of which appears in the trailer.

Keeping with the name of his latest (and final) math-themed album, Subtract deals with loss and grief; in this case, the album was informed by the 2022 death of Sheeran’s good friend Jamal Edwards.

“Loss just took over my life. Every time something massive happens, I tend to write a song about it,” Sheeran says in the trailer.
