Ed Sheeran is working hard to have the song of summer.

On Thursday, the 28-year-old singer announced on Instagram that he will soon be releasing a new album, but this time every song will be a collaboration with another artist.

“Before I was signed in 2011, I made an EP called No.5 Collaborations Project,” he explained his reason behind the album. “Since then, I’ve always wanted to do another, so I started No.6 on my laptop when I was on tour last year.”

Gushing over who he got to work with on the songs, Sheeran added, “I’m a huge fan of all the artists I’ve collaborated with and it’s been a lot of fun to make.”

Sheeran also announced that No.6 Collaborations Project will be out on July 12 and is “available to pre-order from midnight tonight local time.”

In lead-up to the album release, Sheeran is releasing his single, “Cross Me”, with Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock at the same time.
