Edward Sheeran, English singer; actor; and guitarist, has announced the release date for a new album dubbed ‘No 6 Collaborations Project’.
The album which, according to him, is due for July 12, 2019, would be coming as a follow up to the singer’s last album which has sold more than 15.8 million units worldwide.
“Before I was signed in 2011, I made an EP called No.5 Collaborations Project. Since then, I’ve always wanted to do another,” Sheeran said while breaking news of the forthcoming album to his 29 million Instagram followers.
“So I started No.6 on my laptop when I was on tour last year. I’m a huge fan of all the artists I’ve collaborated with and it’s been a lot of fun to make. No. 6 collaborations would be out everywhere on 12 July.”
Although the ‘Shape of You’ crooner is yet to announce all the artists with whom he would be collaborating for the new 15-track release, Chance the Rapper and Justin Bieber are featured in it.
Among the songs in the album are ‘Beautiful People’, ‘South of the Border’, ‘Cross Me’, ‘Best Part of Me’, ‘I Don’t Care’, ‘Antisocial’, ‘Remember the Name’, ‘Feels’, ‘Put It All on Me’, and ‘Nothing on You’.
According to him, the album would be released via Atlantic Records and would be available for preorder at midnight on May 23, alongside the release of ‘Cross Me’.
Sheeran had released his collaborative EP dubbed ‘No. 5 Collaborations Project’ in 2011, prior to his signing to a major record label. The singer has, ever since, garnered himself numerous awards and nominations.
The 28-year-old British pop star’s collaborative single with Bieber dubbed ‘I Don’t Care’ is currently dominating the UK singles chart and is set to secure a second week after its debut last Friday.
