While Ed Sheeran has been working on Yesterday and touring his album Divide around Europe, the “Thinking Out Loud” singer has also been carefully putting together incredible new music for us to get excited about. So far, Ed Sheeran has already released two songs–“I Don’t Care” featuring Justin Bieber and “Cross Me” with Chance the Rapper and Charlamagne Tha God–off of his No.6 Collaborations Project.
When he was first signed in 2011, Ed Sheeran completed his No.5 Collaborations Project which featured eight songs that blended his sound with other artists that he enjoyed. Now, we finally have a release date for the sequel to that project which Ed has been teasing since he posted the tracklist with all of the artists blacked out on May 23rd.
The fifteen track collection of collaborations will be out July 12 and it features artists from every genre. From Cardi B and Camila Cabello to H.E.R. and Skrillex, there are clearly no musical boundaries on this album, and we can only imagine how incredible the overall sound will be since Ed Sheeran has proven his talent for bringing different musical sounds together in the past.
The album is currently available for pre-order, pre-save, and pre-add, but in his announcement of the full-tracklist in his e-mail newsletter, he shared, “I’ll be sharing new music very soon but for now go pre-order your copy.” So we might get to hear at least one of these tracks before the full album drops in July.
