Ed Sheeran dropped two new songs from his forthcoming “No. 6 Collaborations” album: “Blow,” with Bruno Mars and Chris Stapleton, and “Best Part of Me” with Yebba, who is heavily featured on Mark Ronson’s new album. Sheeran’s album drops on July 12.
The surprisingly metallic “Blow” is produced by Mars, while the acoustic ballad “Best Part of Me” is produced by Benny Blanco, Joe Rubel and Sheeran.
In the announcement, Sheeran says, “I loved making both records. Yebba is phenomenal, she’s onto massive things. Bruno, Chris and I had a lot of fun recording. Play them loud, tell your mates, enjoy.”
The singer has already released three songs from the album, the hit “I Don’t Care” with Justin Bieber, “Cross Me” with Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock, and last week’s “Beautiful People” with Khalid.
In the album announcement, Sheeran said, “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 Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock will be out everywhere at the same time x.”
Sheeran’s last album, “÷,” came out in March 2017. He appears as himself in Danny Boyle’s forthcoming film about a world with no Beatles, “Yesterday.”
