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.
