It feels like Ed Sheeran has been teasing a new album for a year (oh wait, he has) but his newest release is finally within reach and it’s bigger than ever—with star-studded collabs, high-concept videos and exclusive merchandise.
Ed announced Thursday that in conjunction with the release of No. 6 Collaborations Project on July 12, he’ll be launching several pop-up stores around the world—including one in Canada in downtown Toronto. The “No. 6 in the 6ix” (very clever) will be open two days only at 277 Queen Street West from July 12 to 13 and sell exclusive merchandise while supplies last.
WHEN ➡ JULY 12-13TH 10AM – 7PM
WHERE ➡ 277 QUEEN ST WEST, TORONTO
— Warner Music Canada (@WarnerCanada) July 4, 2019
If you won’t be close to Toronto next week, there’s still a chance you might get a shot at some of that sweet merch. The pop-up locations for the United States won’t be announced until July 10, so it’s possible there could be one going up closer to you south of the border. You can check here for more info.
Ed’s No. 6 Collaborations Project is his fourth studio album, but the sixth in his “Collaborations Project” EP series, the last of which was released in 2011. He’s already released the first three singles off No. 6 starting with “Don’t Care” featuring Justin Bieber and “Cross Me” featuring Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock in May, followed by “Beautiful People” featuring Khalid at the end of June. “Blow” featuring Bruno Mars and Chris Stapleton is set to drop July 5, ahead of the album’s release the next week.
The album contains 15 tracks which Sheeran revealed (in full!) along with all his collaborators in an Instagram post on July 18. If you thought Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars were exciting, get ready for Cardi B, Camila Cabello, Travis Scott, Eminem and 50 Cent. Our summer playlist is coming along nicely.
