On Instagram, Ed Sheeran wrote a little bit of background about the new album and its name 'No. 6'.

"Before I was signed in 2011, I made an EP called No.5 Collaborations Project. Since then, I’ve always wanted to do another, so I started No.6 on my laptop when I was on tour last year. I’m a huge fan of all the artists I’ve collaborated with and it’s been a lot of fun to make. No.6 Collaborations Project will be out everywhere on 12 July." Ed wrote on his social media.
