Ed Sheeran is collaborating with The Pokemon Company on a song called ‘Celestial’, which will be released next week on various streaming platforms.
The pop star confirmed the news on his official Twitter account, revealing the song’s title and some characteristically adorable artwork that shows a crude sketch of Pikachu resting on Sheeran’s shoulder. It’s unclear at this point if Pikachu will jump onto the track for a verse or two or if he’s just there for the cover.

No further details about Ed Sheeran’s Pokémon song have been revealed, but judging by the artist’s previous work, there’s a good chance it will make you want to cry. Or dance. Or both simultaneously. In fact, I’ll bet you right now that ‘Celestial’ will be played for at least a dozen weddings this year alone.

This is all speculation, but it’s possible Sheeran’s new song will appear in an upcoming Pokemon Go update, as the mobile title hosted an orange-haired singer-themed event late last year. Again making this less and less random, Sheeran himself once shared (opens in a new tab) his affection for the Nintendo DS game Pokemon Black.
