Ed Sheeran and The Game to release a joint album
Ed Sheeran and The Game are planning to release a joint album, possibly later this year.

Speaking to MTV News, The Game revealed the pair's plans. "I'm working on a joint album with Ed Sheeran that we trying to drop probably end of the year, beginning of 2015. That is gonna be crazy," said the rapper.

He explained that the two ended up working together after exchanging messages on Twitter. They planned to just record one song during their studio session, but ended up making seven. "Ed came up with the idea to start working on a joint album, and we started doing it," added The Game. "That was like in five hours. We was just going. He was on that guitar. Acoustically, he’s a genius, man, so when he does that, what comes out of me is songs like 'Dreams' and 'Hate It or Love It' and 'My Life'. The songs that we got, they're real songs. And I can't wait for people to hear 'em."

Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran will release his second album 'x', meaning multiply, on June 23. It was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Rick Rubin, who advised Sheeran to record the album acoustically first and add further instrumentation afterward.

Sheeran released his debut '+' in 2011. Despite mixed reviews, it sold 102,000 copies in its first week on sale and went to Number One in the album chart. It sold 477,000 copies in the UK by the end of 2011, and has since passed the million sales mark, while a 64-date support tour with Taylor Swift in the US last year saw him achieve similar success in the States.
