Having already hitched his wagon to Taylor Swift, rising star Ed Sheeran is teaming up with another of music’s biggest names for his new single.
Titled “Sing,” Sheeran collaborated with Pharrell Williams, who is featured on the surprisingly upbeat song from the “Lego House” singer.
The new single is his leadoff singer from his latest album, “x,” which will be released internationally on June 23, according to “Billboard.”
Sheeran, who worked with a pre-existing track for the first time, compared to song to some of Justin Timberlake’s solo hits.
“It was pretty close to a direct inspiration,” he told “Billboard.” “I love ‘Justified’ and ‘FutureSex/LoveSounds,’ so I took inspiration from those.”
Though the song will have been out for less than a week, the British star is ready to take the song to the stage, performing it live when he serves as the musical guest on “Saturday Night Live.”
Along with Sheeran’s musical debut, the April 12 episode of “SNL” will mark the return of Seth Rogen as guest host.
