In the caption of the post, the singer reflected on the making of the album and the period in his life during which it was created.

“10th anniversary of Multiply this year which feels wild but a lot has happened in those ten years too. This album was made from 2011 – 2014 and covered my entire personal life during that time which was a crazy time,” Sheeran wrote . .

He continued: “From playing pubs and clubs to selling out arenas over those years, falling and falling in love, traveling all over the world, working with some of the best producers in the world, it’s been a real rollercoaster, and it’s been amazing to relive all the memories.”

Sheeran told his fans that he “can’t wait to experience the multiply show with them” and remember some great moments from this summer together.

“Multiply anniversary show is May 22 at Barclays Center New York. Tickets on sale May 6, register via link in bio. Album and merchandise available to pre-order now, available June 21,” he concluded.

Sheeran released X in 2014, when he was only 23. Featuring now-popular songs like “Photograph” and “Thinking Out Loud,” the album quickly helped make the burgeoning new artist a global superstar.
