Ed Sheeran can be seen breaking down into tears in the first trailer for his new documentary series, The Sum Of It All.

The singer, 32, will be showing the ups and downs of his life on the road to stardom in the four-part series on Disney+, which will air on May 3.

The clip starts with Ed talking about his childhood, growing up with a stutter, and saying: ‘That guy doesn’t grow up to be a pop star. It’s so unlikely’.

Childhood videos of Ed are interspersed with clips of him on stage during his sellout arena tours.

Viewers are taken from the beginning of his career to see him first starting out in the industry and working his way up.

Ed describes meeting his best friend Jamal Edwards, who gave him his first big break, and their friendship before his sudden death last year.

Jamal, a music producer and the son of Loose Women star Brenda Edwards, tragically died after a cardiac arrest brought on by taking cocaine and drinking alcohol in February 2022 at the age of 31.

Ed’s wife Cherry Seaborn is also seen in the docuseries, with clips of her pregnant with the couple’s two children Lyra, two, and Jupiter, 10 months.

The pair are seen going on dates together, with Ed saying: ‘Everything in my life sort of got so much better when Cherry came into it’.

However, the series also delves into Cherry’s health issues and the toll it had on the couple.

Recently, Ed revealed that the couple were plagued with ‘fear, depression and anxiety’ because Cherry was diagnosed with a tumour that she couldn’t have treated until after she’d given birth to their second child.

Revealed: The emotional lyrics in Ed Sheeran’s new song Eyes Closed 

So far Ed has released only a snippet of the upcoming song.

He sings: ‘So I’m dancing with my eyes closed.

‘Cos everywhere I look I still see you. 

‘Time is moving so slow

And I don’t know what else I can do so I keep dancing with my eyes closed.’ 

Ed is seen breaking down into tears in the car as the death of his friend compounded by Cherry’s health battle becomes overwhelming.

A clip is shown of him crying on stage as well, with Cherry saying: ‘I’ve never seen him cry on stage’.

She adds: ‘He hasn’t had the time to process and be at peace with his thoughts.’ 

The trailer ends with happier videos of Ed celebrating his birthday, playing on stage and laughing with his friends as he says ‘life can be unpredictable’.

It comes after Ed revealed that the first single off his new album Subtract is dedicated to his late friend Jamal.  

Eyes Closed will be released on March 24, the first single off Ed’s new album Subtract.

He penned alongside the post: ‘Eyes Closed is out 24th march, you can pre order it now. 

‘This song is about losing someone, feeling like every time you go out and you expect to just bump into them, and every thing just reminds you of them and things you did together.

‘You sorta have to take yourself out of reality sometimes to numb the pain of loss, but certain things just bring you right back into it. 

‘Blue was Jamal’s colour, but now is all I feel. And I guess music helps heal, so I’m dancing with my eyes closed to try get through it x’ 

Alongside the images, the singer posted two black-and-white photographs, where he appeared deep in thought as he reflected on the emotional toll of the past couple of years.  

Subtract is set to be released on May 5 with Asylum Records and Atlantic Records. It is thought it will be similar to the hitmaker’s earlier works, having an acoustic feel.
