Ed Sheeran Reveals ‘x’ Album Cover, Tracklisting

x

After launching his Pharrell Williams-produced single “Sing,” Ed Sheeran has unveiled the cover and tracklisting for his sophomore album x (pronounced multiply).

Due June 23, the follow-up to his 2011 debut + features 12 tracks, with production from Rick Rubin, Jeff Bhasker, Benny Blanco, Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid, and Jake Gosling.

“I wanted raw, honest songs from the heart,” the British crooner told Rolling Stone. “When you hear that Kesha-Pitbull song, you know it’s a hit, but it doesn’t make you want to cry or laugh or sit in a corner for five hours just repeating it.”

The album will be available for pre-order on iTunes starting Friday.

See the tracklisting below.

1. “One”
2. “Mess”
3. “Sing”
4. “Don’t”
5. “Nina”
6. “Photo”
7. “Bloodstream”
8. “Tenerife”
9. “Runaway”
10. “The Man”
11. “Thinking Out Loud”
12. “Afire Love”

    @2bad2bme, Chris Brown’s “album” that will probably never be released is called X. This album is called x but you don’t say x, you say “multiply”. Kinda creative lol

    lol I can’t believe his album name is the same as Breezy’s. I also can’t believe that this will be released before his.

    The name of Sheeran’s ablum is “multiply” not “X”. By the way, Sheeran is a hugh talent who has a great voice, plays guitar, raps, and writes his own songs. He and Chris Brown aren’t even in the same conversation in life. The only positive thing I can think to say about Brown is that he’s a great dancer like millions of others.
