Do You Know Why Ed Sheeran uses math symbols as names for his albums?

Uproxx published a portion of an interview that Sheeran gave to New Zealand’s Project NZ in which Sheeran said he isn’t confident in his looks:

“The thing with the albums is I, very early on in my career, decided I didn’t… I don’t mean to play it down, but I have a face for the radio. And I was like, ‘I don’t really want to be a poster boy ever."

"So I had sort of figured out a way, I was like, ‘I’m going to do it with colors and symbols.’ So I was like, ‘I’d love to get to the point that there’s a billboard of just red with an equals sign, or green with a multiply, or blue with a divide, or orange with a plus, and people go, ‘Oh, Ed’s got an album coming out.'”
