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. 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 Project will be out everywhere on 12 July. It’s available to pre-order from midnight tonight local time and my song with @chancetherapper and @pnbrock will be out everywhere at the same time x
The British crooner's latest track, "I Don't Care," a stay-at-home anthem and reunion with fellow GRAMMY-winning pop star Justin Bieber, will be included on the LP. The second single, "Cross Me," will be released at midnight tonight. The forthcoming song will see Sheeran teaming up with GRAMMY-winner Chance the Rapper and rising Philly rapper PnB Rock.
"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. I'm a huge fan of all the artists I've collaborated with and it’s been a lot of fun to make," Sheeran explained in a press release.
The singer-songwriter teased other artists on the new LP, sharing a "censored" tracklist on his Instagram album reveal post, as well as a follow-up post chatting with Charlamagne tha God, but with all the details bleeped out.
If the absurdly fun Emil Nava-directed music video for "I Don't Care" is any indication of what we can expect on No.6, it's safe to say it's going to be a good romp.
