The richest musicians in Britain have been revealed by The Sunday Times Rich List.

The full annual Rich List, which will be published on Sunday May 13, calculates the wealth of the 1,000 richest people in Britain based on “identifiable wealth,” including land, property, assets such as art and racehorses, and significant shares in public companies. It does not, however, include money in private bank accounts.

In the music industry, Ed Sheeran made more money (£28 million) than any other British musician in the past year thanks to his album “÷,” putting his overall wealth at £80 million and giving him a spot tied at 35th place.

According to the rich list, he is worth today what Sir Paul McCartney was worth in 1989 when the first list was published – and McCartney’s wealth has since grown by 925%.
