Ed Sheeran fans were delighted when the Shape of You singer released an epic collaboration with Justin Bieber earlier this month. Now, Sheeran has announced there is much more on the way! He is releasing an entire album of collaborations! Named “No. 6 Collaborations”, the collection is due out July 12 and we couldn’t be more excited.
Sheeran announced the news today on social media and via press release. It will be available for pre-order starting tonight (May 24, 2019) at midnight.
Before I was signed in 2011, I made an EP called No.5 Collaborations Project. Since then, I’ve always wanted to do another, so I started No.6 on my laptop when I was on tour last year.
What’s more, Sheeran also announced the NEXT single form “No. 6” is being release at MIDNIGHT on Friday, May 24… THAT IS TONIGHT, PEOPLE! The new single is called “Cross Me,” and features Chance the Rapper and PNB Rock.
I’m a huge fan of all the artists I’ve collaborated with and it’s been a lot of fun to make.
The rest of the collaborator list is yet to be released, but Sheeran released the album artwork and track listing (song names only) on his social media today. We now know that in addition to Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper and PNB Rock, the album will feature a whopping 19 additional unnamed collaborators! Wow.
