Ed Sheeran’s crowning as the richest person under 30 in the UK comes after he released new album ‘=’ last Friday (October 29).

Reviewing the new album, Rolling Stone UK said: “On ‘=’, the Suffolk stadium star delivers his first coming of age record, as you’d perhaps reasonably expect from a man who is now navigating both fatherhood and marriage to childhood sweetheart Cherry Seaborn.

“It’s just a shame, then, that those personal reflections often fail to hit the intended note.”

Sheeran also recently previewed his forthcoming Christmas duet with Elton John, which is set to feature “loads of sleigh bells”.
