SALT LAKE CITY — Ed Sheeran has announced his next album — “The No.6 Collaborations Project” — will be released on July 12.
This time around, all 15 songs will be collaborations with other musicians, most of which are currently unknown.
According to Billboard, the new album is a followup to “No.5 Collaborations Project," an EP Sheeran made before he was signed to a record label in 2011. The new album has been in the works for a year, and so far two songs have been announced.
Sheeran posted the album tracklist on Instagram with one twist — besides two tracks, every collaborating artist is currently redacted. The two revealed tracks include “Cross Me” with Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock and “I Don’t Care,” which features Justin Bieber and was released earlier this month, according to Deseret News.
