It’s a big day for Ed Sheeran: he released his new album “No. 6 Collaborations Project.”
The album, which features collaborations with Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, country star Chris Stapleton, Camila Cabello, Eminem, Cardi B, Chance the Rapper and Khalid, among others, arrived at midnight.
At 4 a.m. ET, Sheeran’s YouTube channel premiered the only interview the singer is doing to promote the project: a sit-down with media personality Charlamagne Tha God.
In the chat, the singer talks about the stories behind all the album’s collaborations, as well as his personal life.
Sheeran’s video for the song “Antisocial,” a collaboration with rapper Travis Scott, also premiered this morning. From what we can tell from Sheeran’s Instagram, it features the two artists wearing all kinds of crazy costumes and wigs.
Sheeran confirmed during his interview with Charlamagne Tha God that he married longtime partner Cherry Seaborn, after referencing her as his “wife” in a line of his song “Remember the Name” off the new album.
“It was actually before me and Cherry got married, and I knew that we’d be married by the point that the song came out,” he said in the interview.
“So I said, ‘Watch how the lyrics in this song might get twisted/My wife wears red but looks better without the lipstick,’ And I was like ’cause someone’s going to hear that and be like ‘Oh they’re married,’ and I didn’t know how that would be construed, but, obviously, it’s already come out.”
Unsurprisingly, the singer’s pal Taylor Swift is as excited for his new music as we are.
She posted a picture on her Instagram story of herself pretending to apply makeup to Sheeran’s face, and wrote, “As you get ready to release this new album full of BOPS and INSTANT CLASSICS, just know how proud I am to be your friend and am wishing you the best release week!!”
