Ed Sheeran has announced full details for his next album, the follow-up to ÷, which was the best-selling album in the world in 2017.
Entitled No 6 Collaborations Project – following on from No 5 Collaborations Project, an EP from 2011 – it features a series of high-profile partnerships with some of the world’s biggest pop and rap stars.
Including two already-released singles, I Don’t Care with Justin Bieber – which has spent five weeks at No 1 in the UK – and Cross Me with Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock, the 15 tracks include collaborations with artists from both sides of the Atlantic. The album will be released on 12 July.
US stars include Cardi B, Bruno Mars, Camila Cabello, Travis Scott, HER, Meek Mill, Skrillex and Khalid; the track Remember the Name reunites old sparring partners Eminem and 50 Cent for the first time on record in a decade.
Three of the UK’s most successful contemporary rappers appear: Stormzy, Dave and J Hus, the latter with US star Young Thug. UK R&B singer Ella Mai also guests.
