Ed Sheeran cancels positive tests, personal commitments to Kovid-19: ‘Be safe’


Ed Sheeran tested positive for Kovid-19.

The “Shape of You” singer, 30, said in an Instagram post on Sunday that she’s giving interviews and performances from Quarantine and Home.

“Hey guys. Just a quick note to say that I sadly tested positive for Kovid, so I am now self-isolated and following government guidelines,” he wrote. “That means I’m not able to put forward any personal commitments right now, so I’ll do my best interviews / shows from my home. I’m sorry for everyone.”

The news comes just a week before the release of their much anticipated new album “=” (pronounced “equal”) and two weeks before their “Saturday Night Live” performance on November 6.

Sheeran and representatives of NBC were reached for comment on their upcoming appearance.

In August, Sheeran announced that his forthcoming fourth studio album would arrive on October 29, and unveiled a tracklist of his 14 songs, including his recently released single “Bad Habits.”

The new album has been written and recorded throughout London, Sweden and Los Angeles.

Sheeran described the new collection as “really personal.” She said her life has changed in the last few years since Cherry Seaborn’s wedding, and the birth of her daughter, which the couple announced in September 2020.

Sheeran captioned the post, “Somewhere! I have some personal news that I wanted to share with you,” his first since he announced a social media hiatus last Christmas.

“Last week, with the help of a wonderful delivery team, Cherry gave birth to our beautiful and healthy daughter – Lyra Antarctica Seaburn Sheeran. We absolutely loved her.”

This is the first child for both Sheeran and Seaborn who have known each other since childhood and attended high school together.
