There is a collaboration between Pokémon and Ed Sheeran and it will be released next week.
This isn’t the brand’s first time partnering with Sheeran — he played in a Pokémon Go crossover event before last year.
This time, the collaboration is in Sheeran’s area of expertise.
Sheeran confirmed on Twitter that he will be releasing a new song called Celestial on September 29 in collaboration with Pokémon. This is the same song Sheeran previously played in a video on TikTok, where he put down “only half the collection” of his Pokémon plushes.
The cover art shared on Twitter shows Sheeran with a Pikachu on his shoulder. The Pokémon aspect of the release has not been clarified yet, but fans suspect the music video will feature Pokémon animations.
The release of Celestial coincides with the release of Sheeran’s new album =, which was part of the Pokémon Go event he participated in.
