Ed Sheeran recently shared the first set of fan-made music videos for songs from his latest LP, Autumn Variations.
The videos released by the British pop star were for “Midnight” by Meg Igarashi from Japan, “That’s On Me” by Beatriz Santmaria Pinha from Brazil, and “American Town” by Michael Lamhang from the U.S.
Overall, Sheeran will share 14 new music videos as part of the global competition for which there were more than 4,000 entries from 75 countries.
The winners were handpicked by Sheeran. The remaining videos will be shared in the coming weeks.
According to a statement from Warner Music, the project “continues the execution of Ed’s initial vision for ‘Autumn Variations’ as an album for the fans and by the fans as he spotlights their artistry.”
“I made Autumn Variations for the fans and I really wanted to bring them into the fold on this album,” Sheeran said in a statement. “I was keen to see how they interpreted the music, so I decided to ask my fans from across the world to make videos for each album track.”
“There were so many wonderful submissions,” he added, giving a shout out to “each and every fan who made these videos so special. I love them and hope you will too.”
The Autumn Variations record, produced by the National‘s Aaron Dessner, extended Sheeran’s perfect albums chart records in the U.K. and Australia to seven, all consecutive (including two in 2023).
In the U.S., the record earned Sheeran his sixth No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top Album Sales Chart.
